Worth Completing for Mantle at this Point?

SDS

Just wondering everyone’s thoughts on completing the collections at this point in the cycle. Obviously Mantle is still the best card in the game, and Trout should be usable (especially once baseball starts and IE is implemented).

But with the cards revealed today and the 3rd TA almost here it’s getting harder and harder to justify locking in those stubs . The power creep is real! So, people who have locked him in: would you do it again today? People who are working on it: are you still going to pursue Mantle?

SDS

depends on how close you are. If you have all the cards including trout and are just wondering if you should lock him in then yes because mantle is the best card in the game and he will stay that way. Switch hitting speed power hitter Diamond Fielding once he's prestiged he is unbelievable and tracks everything down in the field. I do not think trout will be used in ranked seasons for much longer. I did not hit that great with Sheffield but I love biggio. Other people are different. Plus you get a whole lot of XP doing it but you are pretty much lacking in all those stubs just for mantle and biggio in my opinion

SDS

I have 4 more so I plan on doing it, worked too hard to not finish it now

SDS

I'm surprised anyone does those silly collections and lock in so many stubs, foolishness unless you are the ones that keep winning high diamonds, unlike myself who gets bs every time

SDS

I only got the expensive boys left so yeah, I'm gonna do it.
I only play for fun anyway and don't do an u seasons or events.

SDS

Still the best card available. So yes.

Trout has all the quirks and he's about to get the daily boosts, he will be in vogue shortly.

All the quirks? I think you mean, perks.

No, it's not worth 1 million subs or whatever it costs to lock every card in. I did it, I don't regret it, but it's never worth it.

The best bet is to be patient, spend those stubs on bosses, Duck cards, etc. The best cards won't be in collections, and you'll never use LS cards anyway. Why lock in cards you won't use?

SDS

Best card out there now and will likely be best hitter card even after all the “end game” cards come out. Certainly top 3.

I always feel it's best to lock the collection in as early as possible that way you can get tons of it bats and games with him. The point in locking someone like mantle so late in the season is a waste of stubs in my opinion but if you lock him in early he was the only 99 available that early besides the other big bosses biggio on Sheffield

I forgot about IE. Oh boy, he may return to the lineup

Trout is the last LS card I need, I’m trying, but it feels like the game is pitted against me at this point. I get more and more discouraged every time I see the streamers pull Trout for the seemingly 10,000th time.

SDS

It’s not worth it. I’d rather have the stubs then Mantle, biggie, sheffield and all the live series players.

SDS

There is nothing worth spending Stubbs on. So might as well finish it. All the best or close to the best cards come from grinding.

Really the only thing to spend Stubbs on is relievers. Game gives you soooo much free stuff. You will always have enough stubs for whoever comes out in packs

Not for long

SDS

The top love series cards seem to be slowly dropping in price as these better cards come out. The longer you wait, I think the cheaper it will get.

SDS

I have the Yankees, Astros, Mets, Nats, Rockies, and a Dodgers left. Basically have 30 players on each team already and need the expensive diamonds so yeah I’ll lock them in

Biggie kills lefties. I'm just upset that 2Pac only got 85 speed and gold fielding.

SDS

6 high diamonds away from completing LS. Going to finish it now, it'll be the first year I do so.

I have the same mindset. Sure if you can drop the cash or get lucky + grind and get him early enough then maybe there is some value. Probably moreso this year than in past years since so many ppl had nothing but time to play the game but in general? Meh. No thanks. Plenty of other great cards that I can suck with instead lol
