Face of the franchise predictions

SDS

It looks like there's going to be 4 per team, spread out across all 4 seasons. The ones available at launch are probably players that are older and falling off or younger guys that they think could move up to diamond. Soto, for instance, makes sense as an early pick for the Nats because there's a good chance that he'll be a diamond at some point during the season. They don't want to release an 89 overall card in August. On the flip side of that, those later season cards could be a suped up Trout/Yelich/Arenado. This could be their way of making room for more legends in the Program cards.

My main question is whether these Face of the Franchise players are going to only be current players or if they'll put Legends in as well. How many modern players could be considered for the Orioles currently?

These picks might go either way. Posey is the face of the Giants past and kind of sort of present but with that 99 card at Silver 1 I think they give some of these to either the veteran or the dominate youngsters. I personally hope Crawford is the Giants pick. The last two years have been tough with his lower rated cards. I need a good Crawford card this year!

Crawford did have a gold flashback last year. His hitting just isn’t good enough to be exciting. It could be similar to Buxton for the twins though, just at shortstop and slower.

I think Brandon belt would be a better choice, just because he’ll actually have usable offense. Sure, he’s not exactly who you think of when talking about the face of the giants franchise, but options are limited and he has been there since 2011.

That or they put other cards in there, this might end up being how we get voted finest cards

I was also thinking the spring set could be diamond prospect cards
