99 Mickey Mantle

SDS

How do you get the 99 Mickey Mantle? Is he as good as he looks?

SDS

Collect the Live Series collection and yes, yes he is.

SDS

Batting almost .400 after 300 AB's online for me. And I'm slightly above average hitter. So yes, he's better than his numbers.

I reckon it will cost you either $500 to buy the stubs, or four months of your life to earn them.

Quite the commitment, either way.

Unless you pack Trout, it’ll take a while between card flipping and earning stubs but certainly not impossible

I'll go with four months of my life. 🙂 I doubt my parents would let me cash out $500, though I would!

SDS

I am now regretting selling all of my cards.

I guess, it will also help that I will get the rewards of completing a team collection.

Been at it around 6-7 weeks now nms. NL is done and I have Trout, Cole, Verlander and Chapman in the AL as far as diamonds go. I'll start finishing the last 7 teams (with al diamonds) once I get my diamond level 85 free live series diamond

I've spent very little on packs but I've had good luck too (packed 3 Bellingers but didn't sell for close to what they are now).

SDS

I havent really packed much in the way of good diamonds. I did get Scherzer and Arenado early when they weren't worth much but the 6 other diamonds I got were the lowest. I am 4 cards away from buying the collection. I haven't spent anything at all nor have I spent any time flipping but my lord, I've logged way too many hours in MTO to do the affinities. Done 15 of them now and have about 95k from there plus whatever I've earned selling the cards I get from packs. It is doable but it takes a lot of time and effort. If you are really good and can get to World Series in ranked, you'll do it a whole lot faster than I can.

SDS

All I need is trout belli and Arenado

SDS

See if you can donate plasma to buy stubs. That stuff regenerates but Mickey Mantle is once in a lifetime.

SDS

Unlocked Mantle on Friday, he's got power & speed. Only reason I did was pack luck this year. Pulled Trout, Nolan, Cole2x & DeGrom along with a ton of other 💎

Took me a month straight of flipping,never leaving auction house. just flipping and flipping and more flipping..my left eyes vision got sooo blurry after 2 weeks straight but it's fine now an I finished all collections....I highly recommend always starting with trout then the next high priced diamond then the next...there's like 7 of them...after that just go team by team in a division..pick Al or NL to do first ... remember it's easier to get 25 k than it is 375k that's why every year I get trout first an fast as I can before his price skyrockets because once it does it won't come back down maybe a tad but not much

SDS

I shelled out $1200 day one to get the 99 Mantle. As a Yankees fan I have been waiting YEARS for him to be put in the game. Look, I know alot of people will come at me for doing this but I’m 42 years old, At a comfortable place in my life & able to afford to do this. The bottom line - I didn’t want to wait until 1/2 the year was gone before I got to use him. And I’m glad I did it, He has been SO MUCH fun to play with. Hands down the best DD player EVER.

SDS

Grind away on showdowns. With the amount of packs you get you should be able to complete collections in no more than two months. Also sell everything, including event rewards. Granted everything is way more expensive now, grinding is the way to go.
