Decided today to go ahead and get every team to at least 30. Started with zero teams completely done and 60K in stubs. Finished the day with 6 teams done and 81K in stubs. Sold all duplicates along the way.
Gonna be hard to get Mantle though as the higher diamonds will be hard.
Probably going to have to flip cards to get 75K for a 50 pack option and pray I get Trout and go from there.

I’m doing some spring cleaning too. I locked in all cards that weren’t diamond, put all bronze on the markets, and exchanged all commons to bronze and any bronze free agents to silver. I got some serious do and am still working. Takes a lot of time.

Do you make more stubs exchanging commons to bronze? How many commons make a bronze?

12 commons minimum, 7 per card (I like to see the seller get something for it) for 84 is how I do it

I’m sure I would have made more putting sell orders in. I just didn’t want to do 100 sell orders for 20-40 stubs. It wasn’t about the stubs. I just wanted to clear it all out.

I did sell orders to get more stubs because I want as many as I can to flip to get 75K for 50 packs. I could have exchanged to try and get a gold but to me I made more doing sell orders and offsetting the cost of buying to get me to 30 for every team.

This is my big question for tonight. I have 475k in stubs and am really just holding on to it until ls diamonds drop, which I know could be a while. So, should I rip a 50 pack and see if I can just pull trout, bellinger, arenado, and cole.

SDS

If I had that much I would try a one time rip to see what you could get, but that is all I would do, otherwise I would flip as much as I could to offset the cost of what I needed. I have a plan in my mind, but it's so hard to get to.

That what I usually do. A couple weeks ago I ripped a 50 and packed arenado with a couple others. So I bought another 50. Ended up coming out up 50k and filled out my binder. I know though I won’t get that luck again.

SDS

I keep telling myself that if got Trout I would sell immediately knowing I could triple what I could sell him for and he would be the last card needed for Mantle. So far, I have made 20K today, but flipping can be dangerous, especially the more expensive cards that you could get stuck with.

No way. It's much better to just sell your commons and your bronze.

Sometimes, but not often (depends on the market) it is worth it to exchange silver to gold.

SDS

I have gotten the collection rewards early in the year the last 3 years. I have decided this year to do no money spent lol it’s tough man it’s a lot of justification to me but I have a pretty good grinder squad and about 290k I’m holding until really good players start to come out. I don’t think I’ll be going for mantle

SDS

That's actually a really bad way to do it, especially if/when the league starts up and those commons/bronzes you locked in turned out to be free agents by the time you finally got around to buying the gold/diamonds.

SDS

Not sure what or who your referring to but at some point you have to lock in all cards to complete the collections otherwise aren't you just spinning your wheels and achieving nothing?

Yup, I was down to the 9 most expensive Diamonds, and before the 15% off sale, the price tag was 910k stubs for those last 9. Obviously it's more than that right now. I did grab Cole at 135k before it went nuts.

In a 50 pack you will not rip all 4 of those, you probably wont even land one of those 4. You should land a Diamond or 2.

I know. I wish. Ended up passing on the 50 pack. I’ll wait until I’m really frustrated. That’s wen I had my good pulls. Maybe the game will think I’m ready to quit and keep me around.

I did a 50 pack tonight..

Not a single diamond. All of the golds (maybe 5 of those to include the one in the BIAH pack) were going for less than the QS (when sales tax included)!

SDS

I've never bought a 50 pack....

One day I might get the itch.
