99 Satchel Paige

Could he be the LS collection reward next year?

SDS

Oh gawd. That would make SDS so much money. People would be opening their wallets to get the best pitcher ever early. Provided it was Prime card based on his best years. ( yes, Negro leagues had baseball cards)

And, because I gave them this idea, I get a 30% cut of that money. 😎
lol

SDS

No, but only because pitchers have never once been any of the main 3 LS collection rewards. Would love to see him in the game however

I know that he will be in the game. SDS has to be excited right now. lol

The MLB just announced today that the Negro Leagues have been given MLB status for statistical purposes. Maybe you're on to something.

That is why I said this.

Ever since they announced cross-platform, I've been convinced that the only choice for Lead Legend (whether he's the LS Collection reward or not) is Hammerin' Hank.

SDS

He should definitely be in the game, but I’m still holding out hope for Clemente as the LS award.

He was in the game years ago along with several guys who are not in the game like Berra, Speaker, Three Finger Brown

I've heard of him. He's the guy whose prowess as a steel-driver was measured in a race against a steam-powered rock drilling machine, right? Classic tale of man vs. machine. He would be a fine addition to DD.

SDS

Sweet now I can say that Satchel Paige is the greatest pitcher ever

SDS

Guy was an absolute animal. Can’t wait to see that card
