Flipping

SDS

How many stubs do you have to have before you feel comfortable flipping cards that are worth like 50k, but still have a profit? I'm floating around 160k right now and I can't get myself to buy one of those cards yet. I don't want to get burned.

SDS

Just buy 79 overall silvers or buy an absurd amount of Yasiel Puigs and exchange them once TA3 drops. Flipping is dead, not worth 100-150 stub profits

SDS

Flipping is dead? I make a lot of stubs daily, and although the margins are low this year, it is easy.

SDS

For cards like that, act as if your purchasing the card. Then, if it ever does flip it's a pleasant surprise instead of sweating the "will it or won't it resell?"

Nah not worth it. If you're not making 200-300+ per flip, it's not worth it.

It was easier when you could do it online on your computer. But you can't buy and sell now.

What would buying a lot of Puigs do when you exchange him later? I know that using the exchanges get the most stars the fastest, but doesn't it have to be a player from that team or their rivals?

SDS

There're cards out there that you can make 1000-2000 stubs on. I flipped Dibble about 5 times when he first came out and made out better than that on him.

SDS

There are plenty of ways to safely flip and make 500-1000+ stubs each flip. I have all but the top 10 most expensive cards and that includes completing every collection in the game. All from just flipping. No money spent.

Put puigs in the gold exchange and get golds that will fetch a ton when TA3 drops

Disagree...flipping was worth it to me to collect all the live series players. I bet some others would agree as well that used the flipping method.

I agree with you. If I didn't flip Cards, I wouldn't be at around 160k.

Also the guy above who mentioned that I should look to buy the player instead of intent to flip and then if I happen to sell that's the way to go.

So, if I’m correct, exchange them now and when till then? I just hope I can pull a diamond out of it. I pulled Jack Flaherty it of a normal pack yesterday, so I only need Yelich to finish the NL central.

I'm waiting to exchange on the off chance Puig gets signed. If he goes somewhere, gets signed, I'll sell all of them instead. But I find it unlikely since the owners are literally sucking the life out of baseball right now.

In the past I flipped like a mad man. This year I have spent so little time on the market thanks to some good investments and sheer luck. I tried flipping a bit earlier in the year and aside from when a card was inflated due to an event or program, I found no reason to actual do it. When the rookie exchange was needed for the latest inning program, I was flipping for 500-800 per card. Absolutely worth the time. But to increase the time and decrease the profits by egregious amounts, not worth it at all.

Isn't it sad how the owners have their heads so far up their own butts? I'm a huge baseball fan, so it really sucks that they can't just make an agreement like the other sports.

50k cards have a small window in which to flip for a nice profit/ before everyone catches on or no one wants the player anymore
I like to go smaller value and see what collections they go in---people are always completing collections, so your card flip will sell eventually
