@BodamEscapePlan said in It's over. After weeks of flipping...:
Honestly, now that I'm done... I'll share my method but be warned, it's tedious, boring and you have to be patient sometimes.
Bronze cards are your moneymakers. Sure, you can buy Commons for the 5 or 6 quick-sell price and take advantage when they're selling for around 40-50 Stubs. I did that with a few cards and I mostly stuck to ones that I knew usually sold for more. The biggest thing though is, take advantage of having unlimited buy orders, that alone made flipping so much better for me.
The best advice I ever heard when it came to flipping sounds so simple but it helped me change my mindset, "all profit is good profit." Now, that doesn't mean buy a card for 45 Stubs and sell him at 50 Stubs, but making 40-50 Stubs on each card you flip adds up so quickly. The last two days, I focused on low-bronzes that I could put buy orders in around 25-30 Stubs and then I could sell them for 80-110 Stubs a piece. The more you flip, the more you realize there are certain teams that move much quicker, sell for more, and just have excellent profit margins, but on the flipside, there's teams you want to avoid like the plague! For example, the Angels are a waste of time and personally, I more often than not have been disappointed by Cubs and Cardinals players for whatever reason. Oh, and the Yankees! There isn't much Stubs to be made off the Yankees.
Aside from that, it's all about finding your rhythm. If you place a buy order and the profit margins are nice but by the time you actually get the card, the margins have dropped -- hold onto them! Chances are the price will be back to a healthy profit within the next 6-12 hours.
I hope this helps someone. Good luck guys!
Congrats! I accomplished LS collections as well. It’s a great feeling and makes your ranked team so much better. Now it’s the grind to prestige all those great cards.
One thing I would add to your stub making method is playing the market based off the schedule. The majority of stubs I’ve made on the market are from investing. What I mean is pay attention to the SDS schedule and their plan for player programs, monthly awards, and events. Buy cards based off of that. For example, events prices increase because of the increase in buy now orders. Program prices increase because the majority of players opt to do exchanges rather than missions or moments.
It’s rewarding completing the LS collection after being smart and frugal with your stubs!
