PLEASE stop driving down the cost of cards

SDS

The market gets destroyed when people are outbidding each other by a stub or five, but then someone comes in and bids $1k's less and ruins the profit for everyone. The system is computer generated - as long as you are lowest bid you win anyway. Why lose all those stubs?

No hate, it's just frustrating. Let's have a great day.

SDS

95% of the community doesn’t care about flipping or making profits. They just want to sell the card

SDS

you're yelling at a bunch of little kids bro lol. Simple reason why it happens: Ppl get mad getting undercut for hours and just wanna cash out. I do get just as mad as you though. So I sympathize.

SDS

Leave the price, it will sell eventually. If not, it was overpriced anyway.

SDS

People sell it at whatever price theyd like since its their card

SDS

Let’s just do all the things that you want us to do.

SDS

Your logic is flawed. For instance, I bought Dave Parker at 170,000. The lowest sell now was 399999. He hasn't sold above 300,000 recently. So I bid 299999 to make the chances of selling more realistic and I will be happy with a profit of 100,000 stubs. 99% of the time I agree with you, but some cards are not going to sell at high asking prices.

SDS

I get it guys. I was more frustrated this morning. We're all right in our own ways. I'm just watching opportunity go by the wayside for everyone, not just me. A lot of good points made here in the responses. Have an awesome day.

SDS

Yeah I was going to say children don’t understand that kind of stuff man.

He's not telling anyone what to do...he was simply pointing out how annoying it is when people do that.

Actually what is annoying is when people underbid the low price...just let that one sell.

SDS

Because a lot of us don’t play MLB The Market. And if you outbid by just one, then 16 more a-hole flippers outbid eachother by one and your card sits there until you cancel all your bids and start over. F’ that, under cut to begin with.

Absolutely or they want to improve their team but the prices are absolutely ridiculous.

@the_dragon1912 That's an interesting point - just so I understand, why bother selling the card if they don't care about the profit? Is it just the instant stubs are good enough?

I've been playing for years (and years...) and got back into this during COVID for the nostalgia. Now I'm addicted to DD which I never did before 2020. I guess I don't understand the mechanics of all this outside of the market place.

SDS

I will be spending the day with my huge amount of duplicates selling them for as low as possible because I already got 2.4 million stubs and I fell like giving back to the community instead of pinching every stub.

That actually makes sense. I'll turn as many as I can in for exchanges. Not sure if it's the right strategy, but it seems to work (?)

SDS

Really? Lol if I listened to you then there’s no way I’d be sitting where I am now. Started around 850k Wednesday night, now I’m close to 1.3 m. With this stub sale, there was no way I was sitting back and relaxing

That makes sense too. What I find though is that this happens:

Player
35,000
34999
34998
34995
34800
31000
29999
29998
29997

So even if you undercut, you still get undercut too. Now the price is 5k less in 10 minutes. So in theory, you are still in the same place in line for the card so why not get more stubs?

Again, all these comments make sense in their own way and I am DEFINITELY not telling anyone what to do. I just was curious as to why it was done. Lot of great reasons given so far. Great community - bonded by baseball.

SDS

Market is what market does. It's all about what each player values each card to be worth.
