New SS Players?

SDS

01.07 Off-Season Events
Three new Signature Series player rewards

I thought they said they were done with adding new players, so this could be a pleasant surprise... Anyone hearing anything in terms of who those 3 may be?

SDS

I thought they said they were just done adding new SS cards as inning bosses, I
could be wrong though.

Regardless, I’ll gladly take more new SS cards and I hope they’re pretty good. Still holding out hope for that SS Zobrist.

SDS

Joe Carter is the only remaining preorder diamond without an SS upgrade, so he’s a safe bet.

I think lofton, McGriff, Orel, Sutton, Spahn, and Cy Young all could get SS cards. Other dudes with good-but-not-great diamonds could get juiced SS upgrades, like mattingly, Kemp, kiner, Torre, etc.

SDS

If there isn’t a Sig Hershiser I riot lol

Ok, I certainly hope this is the case. Thanks!

I would really like an Andruw Jones SS card, during his peak he had HUGE power and was among the best defensive outfielders of all time. Mike Scott was also super dominant during his peak years. That splitter was NASTY

SDS

Joe Carter here we come

SDS

uploader Gomes, revealed a screen shot that leaked SS pujols awhile ago. And the card art ended up being the same. In that same screenshot theres a 99 mookie betts with no card art. Gomes was saying that Betts could come out

SDS

My prediction:
Carter, Orel, Gossage

SDS

Probably the first inning bosses. Seems crazy that they don’t have a cy young ss. First inning are the only bosses without signature cards.

SDS

Carter, Betts, Cy Young are the glaring omissions.

SDS

How about extending the team affinity grind, giving each a SS reward instead of a nameplate....

Assuming next 3 SS in Event are:
Cy Young - Red Sox
Goose Gossage - Yankees
Andruw Jones - Braves

You could do (Some stretches here with a few teams, but only way to make it work based on earlier list):
Alan Trammell - Tigers
Bret Boone - Marniers
Bret Saberhagen - Royals
Cliff Lee - Phillies
Don Mattingly - Yankees
Andrelton Simmons - Angels
Eric Davis - Reds
Fred McGriff - Padres
Joe Carter - Blue Jays
Joe Torre - Cardinals
Kenny Lofton - Indians
Mark Prior - Cubs
Mike Scott - Astros
Orlando Cepeda - Giants
Paul Konerko - White SOx
Ralph Kiner - Pirates
Orel Hershiser - Dodgers
Vida Blue - Athletics
Will Clark - Rangers
Manny Machado - Orioles
Ben Zobrist - Rays
Mookie Betts - Red Sox
Warren Spahn - Braves
Don Sutton - Brewers
Daniel Murphy - Mets
Trea Turner - Nats/Expos
Charlie Blackmon - Rockies
Brian Dozier - Twins
David Peralta - D-Backs
Marlins - Anibal Sanchez

Pretty Please SDS!!! : )

P.S. Make them sellable....they will be worth a lot with the long grind and help you sell more stubs and keep people playing...

SDS

If SS Carter qualifies at 1B, I will be very happy.

Great idea, and would love it if they did it. Unfortunately, I highly doubt they’re going to do anything that big this late in the games life cycle.

Don't make them syllable. Just call it the Affinity II Program and add new missions/trade-ins.

SDS

I would not care either way if they did this about them being sellable or not, however, making them sellable would do a couple of things.....1) If the suck a lot of stubs out of the VERY inflated market due to the long stub sale and 2) it would likely lower the prices on other cards as player who don't want a long grind spend their massive stub counts on this new content.

I just want a Team Affinity 2 to have something the grind for the next few month....there is STILL 3 months before THE SHOW 20, so this would be a great way to put bow and a fantastic year of content for sure....

I don't think they do that either. But I do think they keep rolling out content to keep us busy. They'd really be dropping the ball if they didn't and this might be a bold take, but all those finest players tweets they did today, tell me they're going to be doing SOMETHING kinda big. Idk about more finest, but mookie is coming, guaranteed.

Just seeing those tweets now. Not sure what SDS is trying to do with them, but boy are they getting me excited. Surely they wouldn’t put out 30 tweets without any kind of purpose.

I just find it hard to believe that those tweets are just a “fun fan experiment” or whatever.
