Feel kinda sorry for all of the people who did the collections and locked in all of those expensive prospect diamonds, only to see better versions come out 2-3 weeks later. Crazy.

Curious as to what @allmustfall16 thinks about all this, since I know he got Franco.

It's not like this doesn't happen every year where there is a collection that is super expensive then they release something new that tanks that market and makes that collection half the cost it was.

Early adopters will always pay more

It’s upsetting for sure. I really do love that Franco card though. He’s been great for me and before him I had a hard time hitting out of the short stop position on my team. I bat him 8th and he punishes people down there. Think in like 100 at bats so far he’s around .330 with 8 HRs for me. I’ll take that batting 8th.

I only like MLB because the rest of the team building games have gotten out of hand. Especially NBA 2k.

I have always been able to count on maybe one weaker card early and then their end game card at some point for players in this game. Anything more than 2 and it just means you lose value in your stuff and you’re always feeling like you have to catch up.

Future Stars shouldn’t include any of the current prospect cards. And the headliner tomorrow shouldn’t be rated as high as LS Trout. That’s bad for all of us.

I really hope SDS listens to the community on this. I feel like the majority of everyone else. I don’t like my cards being tanked on purpose. Especially this soon. Longevity should be what SDS should want, for us to play this game all year. This type of stuff makes people quit the game early.

True for sure, but I don't think I've ever seen it happen within 3 weeks (getting a better version of cards that had been in expensive packs.).

P.S. Really glad I did not buy any of them....but I will be buying Lux off the market at some point. Curious as to what his price will be

I get that, but this is different. They’re just releasing the exact same players for no reason. And it’s not like we’re talking about Finest cards at the end of the year, the full prospect set has only been out for a few weeks and we’re already getting new versions of them.

The prospect cards should’ve been the highest those players got this year. There’s no reason for SDS to release even more juiced up versions of the same players when they haven’t even done anything.

I could understand if the season was happening and one of the prospect guys won player of the month or something, but there’s no reason for any of these we’re getting now. It’s pure laziness, and even if they are TA cards, it’s still scummy.

Exactly. Forgetting for a moment that there's no way that card should be a 95, if they had put out a Legend or flashback set this week and then put out future stars in july or August I could cut them some slack. This is like putting that Hanley card out and then before the inning program ends putting out the real card everyone wanted with the speed and the stance everyone likes.

As a side note, didn’t they create Signature Series cards last year for this very reason? So people wouldn’t invest heavy on cards, only for a better version to be released soon after?

SDS

Maybe this is the next incarnation. They will be making fake cards of players out of position with maxed out ratings. I know FIFA did that this year.

I realize this is probably a mistake, but man, imagine if it isnt.

SDS

Dont give them ideas.

So you’re saying we should wait it out and not buy these future stars. Got you. But SS Alex Bohm, Drew Waters and Nick Madrigal when? I hope it’s not more than another week or two before they get the new improved versions out to us. Just wait for the FOTF part 2 set. 91 Ohtani, 90 Josh Bell, 92 Gleybar Torres woooooo!

SDS

It'll go great with the (Marques Colston-TE) card.

Anyone who did the collection should’ve known that was a waste of stubs. That collection has been WAY overpriced. Even now with the cards at near quicksell value it’s still overpriced.
