Just pulled Trout from affinity pack

SDS

First time in all 4 years i been playing i ever even owned him let alone pulled him. Should i sell or use?

SDS

If you want to collect all the teams - keep him - if not sell and invest in some TA

SDS

Sell sell sell... Use it to get a few good ones. Congrats

SDS

Use that mofo

SDS

I pulled him as well. I never really used him outside br. So im gonna see what he's about. I'm batting a mean 400 with him. If you need a outfielder with a good arm. He's the cream of the crop.

SDS

I would use him until stub sale. Price will jump substantially, then wait till after sale + buy up anyone else you want/need.

SDS

Yeah, no doubt TA packs are juiced. Wish i was good as Showdown, I'd play it for vouchers to get TA packs.

SDS

Nice try Ramone

SDS

That’s awesome man congrats. Really depend on your end goal.

TA packs are not juiced, just normal packs. I ripped over 40 this weekend and didn't even pull a gold.

SDS

Nice catch!! I’d hold him until there’s a stub sale. I bet there will be one here in the next month

SDS

I also pulled him in an affinity pack. I've been debating selling as well. Like @tmichae10 said, I might sit on him until the stub sale then cash in.

SDS

If you don’t care about the LS collection, sell. You can scoop up 8-10 great cards for his stub price

Then you have bad luck, I've pulled many golds and at least 3 Diamonds. All from TA packs and I am not the only one.

I sure do! I have 10 teams into stage 2, so that's about 90 packs, and not a single diamond!! Guess for as many people having good luck there are people having bad luck.

I'm wondering about prices too. Wonder if any of those high diamonds will drop at all on Friday when the new inning program comes out? I have saved enough to finally buy Trout, but it's SO MANY stubs. I'm doing the collection, so I need him one way or another. Just wish it wasn't so much. What does everyone think, a minor drop on Friday with the new inning program and new headliner packs?

SDS

I keep hearing TA packs are juiced. I, personally, haven't seen it. A few golds, I guess. (got one gold out of the three packs I opened this morning). But no diamonds here (and I've had relative luck in pulls for the packs I've earned this year besides TA).

SDS

I was curious, so I went and checked my pack history: This is my diamond luck (not sure total packs, there were 19 pages).

Acuna (last week, regular pack)
Strasburg (April 1, BIAH pack)
Aroldis (March 31, regular pack)
Gerrit Cole (March 27, regular pack)
Jimmy Rollins (March 20, BIAH pack)
Kirby Yates (March 18, regular pack)
Realmuto (March 13, opening day, regular pack)
Rendon (March 13, regular pack)
Ketel Marte (March 13, regular pack)

Of course, I've had some diamond unlockables along the way, too. I guess that's coming out ahead, so to speak. So, I had great luck early and it's dropped off. Almost since I started locking in diamonds in collections. I haven't gotten anything better than base round for prospect packs. No diamonds from TA. I'm now 15 diamonds (all the 90-plus) from finishing the LS collection. Sure could use a boost, HA. As a general rule, I don't buy packs. I splurge on a couple singles every now and again, but mostly this came from the ones you earned and the extra I got with the $70 purchase of the game.

You're not alone bro! I've had to of ripped at least 300-400 packs and have only pulled 2 diamonds all year. One of friends on the other hand seems to pull a diamond like every 5 packs or so! At least 30 or 40 by his count so far.

SDS

I actually ripped a 50 bundle on a whim the other day when prices were high af. Figured I at least pull 1 or 2 diamonds and could make most of the 75k back off of those and any other high priced golds or silvers at the time. Well... needles to say I pulled 0 diamonds and maybe like 3 gold max. I know 1:50 odds doesn't guarantee you a diamond in 50 packs, but c'mon. This is by far the worst pack luck I've ever had in many years playing dd.
