SDS

Just saw this and figured I’d pass along

SDS

Correction - definitely 15% off stub sale happening lol.

Not a stub sale. Just 15% off the game for people buying it.

15% all versions of the game and all Stubs.

SDS

15% is barely a sale, any major market changes clearly have to be reactionary

SDS

Well, Cole is at 175k, Bellinger 145k, Arenado 133k and Trout just hit 320k. Reactionary or not, high diamonds are edging up.

Yeah, last year we didn’t really see the post sale deflation a lot of people expected. Ultimately, towards the end of the year, the LS collection becomes quite attainable. I expect that to be the case again this year, with free LS diamonds included in the XP and prestige reward paths. Short term, however, the economics are plain to see. People buy high diamonds at a high rate and lock them into collections, removing them from circulation and driving up the price, but they’re not being pulled or won from BR runs and listed for sale at the same frequency they’re being brought up and taken out of the marketplace during high traffic times like stub sales and stimulus payouts, thereby causing a gradual but steady increase until they level off and begin to decline towards the end of the year, as supply outstrips demand again. This is specifically in relation to high LS diamonds, as the effect on lower tier cards is usually short term and negligible at best.

SDS

Not even sniffing at 15%

Well said, and what is your best advice for Trout? For the first time in my life I pulled a Trout card this week. Now I’m conflicted between locking him in for the collections and getting the Mick or do I sale when he gets to the summit? I’ve been playing the show since 2011 but this is the first year I’ve played DD .... any advice is appreciated

Haha, same boat here, I have Trout, Arenado and a few middle quality diamonds like Yelich. I don’t want Mantle, but I wouldn’t mind Sheffield and Biggio. I’m tempted toward selling over the weekend, but I don’t think the prices will immediately drop back to where they were and I anticipate another, bigger, stub sale before the all star break.
