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

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

I laughed.

SDS

I'm still about 1.1 M stubs away from locking Mantle and decided it's not worth buying all the expensive cards I won't use. Prefer to use stubs on the new 99s plus I can sell back cards if I dont like them.

SDS

You still have until February of next year to use him if you get him now. That's 8 months of use if you keep playing. Why do you think its so late?

SDS

I myself was just thinking this too and was about to make a similar post. I'm sitting on 200k stubs and pretty much the only diamonds I have left are the high diamonds except Cole. So I still need an additional 500k and just thinking I'm still so far off just exhausts and annoys me. I really want Mantle but just don't really know if it's worth the long [censored] grind nowadays.

SDS

You get 2 free 90+ LS cards in the Prestige XP reward path.

I finished NL. I'll use Prestige Level 45 to help me with AL. Hoping for Trout obviously

This is pretty much where I'm at. I have about 500k saved up and need Trout, DeGrom, Verlander, Cole and Scherzer. Can't decide what to do at this point.

SDS

Just do it! Considering all these great free cards coming, what else are you going to spend tour stubs on!?! You get almost 100k back fro collecting everything too

SDS

Yea, I have only High Diamond LS card except Verlander left. Yanks, Nats, Mets, Rockies, Dodgers to finish. I'll probably finish at some point, but right now the rewards the game gives us are just as good if not better. I'm not in a rush to get Bellinger now that I have his MA Lighting Card.

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

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?

They are called quirks, so no, he probably didn’t mean perks.

I added up all the sell now's I would need for the rest of the diamonds. I just need an additional 600k on top of the 233k I have now. Big long sigh

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?

Depends how close you are but he’s a stud lol

SDS

Personally, I’m not unless I pull the high diamonds. Which is all I have left. Too many 99 cards left to drop

SDS

I'm only a few cards away, worked on it all year, I just don't know what I'd spend stubs on as cards & bundles are just a waste, ya I could have a equal team without the collection
pretty much but...

SDS

Of course you do if you’re close. I’m Cole away and almost have the stubs to buy him. Plus, stubs are relatively easy to come by as you advance and you can buy whoever you want once you’re done.

I ask you this: If the coming TAs and are so good as to make Mantle not worth the price, then what good are the stubs anyway?

This is a very good point. I actually lucked out and pulled Arenado and then bought a bunch of others. Sitting on 230k with Trout, Rendon, Cole, and Chapman to go.

Still the best card available. So yes.

the Podcast gueststar huh? Thats passion my dude. Haven't heard it. I will..Even to put a voice to a name ..Helps a little.

SDS

Yes yes and yes

Dont be deceived by these TA3 ovr - few have over 85 power (comparitively) and too many 1B, mantle is still by far the best card - more like a 99+++

Agreed. I'm a ✔ it out.

SDS

I need all the high diamonds and could finish it but I think I would rather use the stubs to buy other players and have a more balanced team at this point. I want these new bosses, chapman and a new ss maybe banks.
