Market prices drop

SDS

Wondering how much some of these prices will tumble now that most of the collection hype has died down. This event offers a bunch of decent rewards too that help with collections(2 awards players, players league pack, 2 home run derby packs, ducks on the pond).. they made it fairly easy to complete the collection in my opinion so I don't see the prices staying high. The hype made them jump up more than anything.

SDS

I think we are still in the thick of the hype and unless there is something else to refocus stubs on, the Trout collection is it. There will be a handful of sets that remain high for a while, even if there are some scattered packs award through Events, Conquest, Programs, etc. Another flash sale will obviously help.

Prices will only drop as new cards are introduced or flash sales flood the market with exisiting cards.
Look at Mazeroski, his price has dropped from a high of close to 50k, but since he was either a RS or a henchman (can't remember) and postseason cards are limited in terms of the number of unique cards means he will stay at worst in the 35 to 40k range.

We need supply to increase if you want to see prices drop.
One last thing to consider, there is a ton of stubs in people's accounts after many of us sold off on hype.
Trout created many stub millionaires in a matter of minutes. This will also trigger inflation resulting in higher prices.

I have a counterpoint to the inflation thing. While trout did make many stub millionaires from people selling, the only cards that Trout owners have any demand for are new cards worthy of using on a team. Postseason cards will remain high due to limited supply, but other than HRD cards maybe, the only people buying the cards are for the sole purpose of collecting. The ducks on the pond base and mid tier, prospects, HRD, players league, Breakout, Rookie, veteran, and allstar cards have no where to go but down IMO as more packs are released. FOTF and Future stars will likely remain unaffected as you have to get most of those through grinding anyway. We are pretty much exclusively going to get Awards, Prime, and Sig cards from here on out and If they keep giving out Topps now for free then those will be easy. I think the inflation only affects new top tier card releases personally, not really the trout market. The people with millions of stubs more than likely already have Trout. My advice to anyone that plans on getting trout is to just wait and skip the PS prt of the collection. It will undoubtably be cheaper after a few conquest maps release etc.

Once more of the high-demand series hit the market, prices on everything will drop a bit. For example: new season starts soon...would be shocked if one of the low-level rewards wasn’t a Postseason card. That should impact the absurd value of guys like Bench and Murray, because they aren’t quite as necessary as they were before that card dropped. Same would apply to all series: as more of options become available, most prices will drop (and in the case of HRD, prospects and Players Series - as packs start showing up more in conquest, flash sales, etc)

I sold PS simply because the prices were too good to pass up. I could not turn down an 800% profit, it doesn't matter whose card is the end reward.

There are so many "useable" cards now thanks to FOTF and POTM.

I think inflation effects the low and mid tier cards more than anything.
Look at Dibble he was always in the 95 to 105k range (flash sales not taken into account). After the Trout hype his card barely moved up. What did move were cards like Cueto, Kingman and Choo. Those cards doubled and in Choo's case almost tripled in value.

The high end cards were always going to be pricey and not many players have the stubs to get them. But the competition for the lower cards will be greater since more people have the stubs to buy them.

The Trout hype is what caused the lower diamond to shoot up. What I’m saying is that inflation from extra stubs from the Trout collection isn’t going to be used on the lower guys. I would say 85-90% of the people who sold off cards and made 500k+ stubs already have trout. They either already have the cueto, Kingman, Choo types or don’t need them anymore. Choo in particular will continue going up because that event is over. Kingman will be 6k the next time ducks packs hit the shop. I agree it will cause inflation, but trout alone caused these lower cards to shoot up. The inflation will cause Chapman, Dibble, Banks, WS and BR rewards, and inning bosses to stay up. Those cards weren’t going to be used for the collection anyway and are used for teams. For example, someone like me that already has Trout and 600k+ stubs isn’t going to buy the next pennant race reward unless it is for a team build. Trout keeps those prices higher, my inflation does not. Am I making sense?
