Is 99 Robinson worth the time?

SDS

I’m thru stage 1 of the Jackie Robinson program. His 99 card looks solid, but against him online he hasn’t been that great and I don’t love his swing. Any thoughts on if he is worth the grind? My current 2B is a Dietrich month awards /Torres FOTF platoon

SDS

I think it would be an upgrade over your current 2B situation, but in general it's worth it just for all the free packs and stubs.

SDS

This new Cano card is the best 2b available. I’m not impressed with the 99 Jackie tbh. I actually even prefer the Monthly Awards Dietrich

SDS

It depends, are you no money spent? You get a ton of packs, experience, and stubs... But I didn't hit that well with him, and agree hrd Cano may be better..

SDS

I like Robinson a lot but i wouldn't recommend grinding for it if you don't enjoy such things. I would just complete the missions that you can complete in normal gameplay and then maybe finish out each stage with moments or other missions as you need more points

SDS

I just unlocked him a couple days ago, haven't used him yet as I have been playing the event. If you are going to do it, now might be the time with the current event we have. That gold Jackie just doesn't do well online, or it didn't for me, until I used him against bronze pitchers.

The moment that drove me crazy was the 2 XBH/1 SB. After I got that it was not that bad. Just load your lineup with the position you need and play the Rockies, you can knock some of those missions out quick.

SDS

He’s hitting .350 with a 1.000 ops through 150 PAs on HOF, so yah he’s worth it, also pulled arenado out of packs

SDS

Packs alone that program is worth it to finish. Personally i hit well with jakie so he starts at 2nd for me over biggio. His speed is good for tracking down balls in shallow outfield. Worst case hes a good pinch runner with a few different secondary positions for versatility

SDS

The only moment that was hard was the 2 XBH/1 SB After that it was actually a lot easier than i thought! You get all those stubs and a ton of packs. Plus I’ve always loved Jackie cards & have done great with them. He can do it all.

For me the only way Jackie leaves 2nd base is when a 99 Roberto Alomar drops

Second this. I added it up and you get around 40 packs, 7 BIAH packs, 2 headliners, 20k stubs, and about 10k experience. The card itself is really good, but the rewards make it so worth it.

SDS

I only need 5 more points to finish but probably won’t unless we need that card for something. I only wanted the rewards along the way.

Why the heck not finish if you've come this far!

SDS

Once you get past the 88 Card, its all pretty easy......and I did them before they made the early moments even easier....yes it is 100% worth it, and the equipment for your CAP is great as well, if you use a CAP

SDS

Is that Jackie program as big of a grind as I think it is? I haven't even started it aside from maybe getting 5-10 points accidentally and I'm not hurting at 2B but I'd like to do it if it's not incredibly long and frustrating.

Its 100% a huge grind but I didnt do it as my primary grind at any point, its daunting to try to attack it all in a night or 2.
The conquest stats i found the most tedious but i just reset the usa map and simmed a couple rounds till i had 15 or so fans and would attack a rockies single square instead of stronghold so it was on rookie, had jackie lead off and quit out after his ab. Took about 40 abs and 3 map resets but it went fairly quickly considering.
The rest of the mission stats just kind of happened thru playing because i have bellinger in my lineup so i got Dodger stats from him and left field stats from trammel.
Took about a week for me to finish off without pressing to finish but it was 100% worth the time.

SDS

100% worth it. Gold fielding at all available positions and easily the best lead off hitter in the game. Elite speed, elite contact, surprising pop. He's a great table setter and failing that, probably the best option for a bench bat/speed.

Aside from that, the other rewards in the program are worth it

Haven’t had any use for the card yet.

SDS

it's long, and originally one of the early missions was hitting 2 HR at Forbes field (which I did) and I think they have actually changed it to be extra base hits now. You get a TON of XP and stubs from it as well, so it is very much worth the grind in my opinion.

I'm in the same spot just have to beat Dodgers on allstar. Been playing moonshot. I'm not good but i like it. Had 7 wins once.

SDS

Well worth it IMO. Packs,Stubs,XP, n diamond equipment for those that use created players.
