FINAL GUESS

SDS

Oh I know, there’s no way it will be Griffey. I just think it has to be somebody new because of all the hype around this collection. I don’t think it will have multiple players either, but if it did that would be great

Ya know... seems like a lot of people forget that Griffey Jr was only 2 hr shy of McGuire at the All star break. He had 35, Sosa 33, and McGuire 37, I believe.

Didn’t Griffey have 41 Home runs at the All-Star break in 1994 before the season got cancelled?

I think Matt Williams was on pace to break 61 that year too. That also woulda been year Gwynn had a chance to hit .400. I think he was hitting .394 when the strike happened

I’ve been researching this topic for the last few days and cross referencing home runs batting averages stolen bases and fielding pct, my verdict is that it’s not a new legend sorry to say. It’s going to be Willy Mays... look with a career 660 home runs and an average of 36-37 home runs yearly, career batting average of .302 WaR of 156.2 3283 hits 1903 RBIs and 338 stolen bases where he had seasons of 40+ I think it’s going to be Willy mays

I would agree with you 100% normally, but the fact that Mays was the collection reward last year makes me think it’s not gonna be him

I mean if it is mays that’ll be a disappointment but he’s the only logical guess, He’s one of the best players in history

I may be the minority but I wouldn't be disappointed if it were Mays

He’s absolutely one of the best players ever. And I think we will get his 99 card with Inning 8, just not with the collections

By disappointment I don’t mean it would be like a slap in the face or anything I mean everyone is expecting someone new, Mays isn’t new.. I’d use the card a lot , I used him all year last year.

I 100% hope so. I think everyone is expecting someone new and anything less then someone with shock value is going to be a let down

They’re being sneaky quiet about it. Could drop a bombshell on us in a few hours. They could drop a [censored], right on our front porch. Hard to tell.

All I know is my brain is absolutely spent with all this speculation and unnecessary detective work. I’m napping till noon PT

Agreed. I think we’re all hoping they drop a bombshell on us all in a few

Fingers crossed my dudes🤞
I don’t think SDS is that tone deaf, they’re gonna come thru on this one.

SDS

Looking back on the stream, two things jump out.

  1. "If you have cards that you don't have a collection for, that's going to change on July 28th". Those cards are all XP path cards like POTM Sanchez, Mondesi, FS Reyes, Ramirez, Springer etc

  2. "It's going to be a NEW GUY everyone will want in their lineup"

That to me sounds like you better be High Diamond or Prestige in XP path and New Legend incoming.

The Expos were also on pace to break the wins record. 74-40 with Walker having a batting line of 20 HR's/ 86 RBI's and a batting average of 322.

its randy johhnson i hope. he will be in your lineup, he will be in your head, in your nightmares and you will be chasing that slider in your sleep.

over and over you will dream of fastballs coming right down the pipe than just as you go to swing it will disappear, you will be jolted awake and this will occur night after night, day after day...

at least that's what I'm hoping for

SDS

Could be 99 ovr Ramon Russell

Final Guess

SDS

I haven't read through all this so apologies if these are popular opinions. My only two thoughts are:

No way it's a pitcher

Anyone thinking "chase" means anything other than just the act of obtaining this card is crazy.

SDS

Calm before the storm... There's a smell of awkward quiet anxiety permeating this forum right now lol

SDS

Can't say I saw this one coming. Only recall one user saying "whatch it be Tout". While it seems most folks are disappointed, I'm actually happy to have a Trout that could play in my RS team. It's a really good card.

SDS

Ruth is always a big drop and he’s always mid year they’ve also never used him for a big collection but it’s usually the biggest/ hardest program. It’s gotta be Ruth.

SDS

I'm thinking Joe Mama...they'll probably keep Ben Dover for latter in the year.
