Event rewards

SDS

I have a feeling these event rewards are going to end up fairly pricey. With an Honus collection on the horizon, I think these cards will be vital to it. I also think due to the settings/restrictions, a lot of casuals probably won’t stick around for a full 55 wins to get Betances.

Lol I’m out after 3 games

Those cards will be 10k. They buns.

Uhhh yeah it is. Nobody needs these cards on their squad, meaning they'll sell them. Meaning low prices.

Lol ok dude. There's going to be 10,000 of them. You dont think there's people that want stubs? Not everyone has the possible honus type collection on their minds. I do. All don't.

SDS

A 93 dozier and another buns card. 3 innings hall of fame not quick count.

SDS

Cheap now. Expensive later when there is a Honus collection which could be any day now.

I would rather buy the cards from the market if i dont have enough of their category instead of grind this buns event for these buns rewards.

That attitude is exactly why they could potentially be more costly. If people don't want to grind because it's hall of fame, fewer people will go after it. Same thing happened with Lofton and McGriff. Those cards weren't that great when they came out and they were fairly expensive. It was because people didn't want to grind 6 inning event games.

SDS

I like the new reward structures in theory, but it was much better in terms of acquiring player rewards last year.
It’s basically impossible this year, for anyone that has a life outside the game, unless I want to devote every second of my game play time to event, and even then it could be iffy.
55 wins in a couple weeks is just ridiculous, and I say that as someone that wins more Event games than they lose.

Bad events with bad rewards are always the most expensive lmao. there are very few people are crazy enough to grind out 55 games of Newhouser on HOF. This event is going to be used to prestige Mo and thats it. No one is going to care about the wins, causing the cards to be expensive

It has nothing to do with being on Hall of Fame. I would rather attempt World Series for one of those rewards. I have two lofton's and two mcgriff's and they are both worth about 10K each so stop with your nonsense.

That's fine but those two cards are not going to make or break a honus collection

SDS

They will though. It’s a domino effect, people will be looking for the lowest value card. When the prices for silvers and golds skyrocket they’ll look for the lowest tier diamonds. It’s what happened with Alex Gordon last year. The event rewards continuously skyrocket because there’s only a finite amount that can ever exist, and the more that are locked in the fewer cards are available on the market.

SDS

Also more and more people have completed the live collection. I personally am no longer selling everything I earn so I'll be hanging onto any rewards I snag from now on. I think OP is correct. They won't be 80K, but they will be pricier than they should be based on stats. But sell now and buy back more expensive later or don't play the event and buy it later. It's your team. Thanks for the tip OP.

I feel like you missed the point. It might have nothing to do with HoF for you, but for others, having it on HoF is a deterrent. Whatever the reason, if more people are deterred from doing the event, it will limit supply which means rewards will be more expensive than they otherwise would have been. If you had applied these exact same awards to the moonshot event, I bet you prices would've been lower on average because more people were interested in playing that event.

You're quoting Lofton and McGriff prices after one of the biggest content drops of the year which also included half off packs. People were selling off every sellable card they had to either buy cards for exchanges or buy packs - that's going to decrease the price of almost everything. Back when the event was live, those cards were much more expensive than Choo and whoever the other reward was (Murray?) in the event prior to it. And that is because fewer people were interested in grinding a 6 inning event.

I expect those cards will settle around 8K, 15K and 25-30K respectively with no other content releases influencing prices. If the next content drop excludes the Honus-type collection, yes prices will drop on those cards. If Honus is the next big content drop, those prices will rise.
