He didn't participate in either HRD or ASG.
He didn't really deserve either Topps Now or POTM.
He didn't really do all that much in the Postseason.
He career doesn't yet warrant a Signature Series card.
He didn't warrant a Finest.
Not really sure what card you think he should have had.
The content was enough to finally push me into preordering.
My only complaint is that inning bosses that have prestige missions that are online only.
- 99 Hardware Griffey locked behind multiple online-only missions (Win 50 Ranked, Win 50 BR, Single game stat missions where your opponent would quit before you earned it because they were punks, etc.)
- All 3 "End Game" cards (Pepe Alazar, HW Pujols, HW Chipper) locked behind multiple online missions
- First 4 Programs (Rookie Archer, Rookie Chipper, BO Drabek, BO Cruz) locked behind online missions
- Numerous Daily Programs (BO Will Clark, AS Ozzie) locked behind online stat grinds
- Numerous Event Cards (PS Rajai Davis, AS Clippard) locked behind event specific missions
- 3 Immortals locked behind online missions (Musial, Feller, Ted)
- 2 Immortals locked behind making World Series (Kershaw, Sandberg)
- No cards locked behind online. Good on SDS
- Prestige versions locked behind online. Not the greatest, but considering they're only locking a version of a card, not the card itself, I'm not as against it as I otherwise would be.
“We are continuing to monitor it”.....they are so out of touch with how the majority of the players feel.
A few randos posting on a message board != "majority of the players"
They have the back-end stats. They know what the REAL numbers are and not just cherry-picked isolated cases from internet goons.
The logical fallacy you make is what YOU see & hear constitutes the entirety of the user experience.

In 2019, 2 Flawless rewards were released on May 31st:
96 SS Felix
99 SS Willie McCovey
Both prices eventually fell between 100-200K. However, I didn't have the coin to purchase them at the time and didn't until January or so. By which point they had gone back up to 699,000 and 710,001 respectively.
My advice: get 'em if you can while you can.
You'll be waiting a while.
