Early guesses for player acquired after collection all live series players?

SDS

With the information we do have, it seems as if most likely a 99 Jackie Robinson will be rewarded after the collection of all live series players but I would like to hear what everyone else has heard (maybe) or thinks?

SDS

Oof, i hope not

Has the cover athlete even been the collection reward?

I don't think Jackie, he doesn't have enough pop and personally, I don't really like his cards.

My guess is that it has to be a 5-tool player, so that the longevity of the card will last throughout the year. They've done this with Pepe Alazar, Mantle, Mays, Vladdy(not the best fielding, but had everything else). A logical guess would be Griffey, but I don't think SDS could put one of the most popular players behind a giant wall like that. But yeah, don't have another logical guess so I'm going with him. But I know I'm 99.99% wrong.

SDS

Since they made Babe free this year maybe he will be the collection.

SDS

I hope it isn't jackie because I just never enjoy using his cards honestly. Personally since they make note of 2 way players in RTTS I hope it can be a 2 way Ruth. Lets face it Vlad was a cool pick but not the best immortal, Mays was incredible mantle I personally feel as a switch hitting mays but I am obviously biased. I just hope it is a true end game level card especially if we get the no quicksell again. I dont remember but has Griffey ever been the choice

Adley Rutschman 😉

As a Giants fan, I couldn't hit with mays so I hated him, and no you aren't biased about Mantle, he's a goon, and still my number 3 hitter. Griffey has never been the choice since he was introduced in 2017, but the question is whether or not SDS would do that to Griffey, and I just don't think they will, he's a fan favorite(but you never know)

Oh I 100% agree especially with his new made up position at MLB but to me a card on the Griffey level is what needs to be a huge collection reward.

SDS

Hank Aaron. It has been a new legend each of the last 3 years, which new legends taking up the AL and NL collection rewards each of the last 2 years as well

SDS

Jimmys Foxx with catcher secondary maybe. That seems to be a popular card every year that people don’t like waiting for. If it’s a new legend then maybe Aaron makes sense or Clemente or maybe Frank Robinson.

I do not believe so...could be wrong. I cant really remember who they were before the MLBTS2018

SDS

Year-----Cover-----Collection
2017-Griffey-Ted
2018-Judge-Vlad
2019-Harper-Mays
2020-Baez-Mantle

It's GOT to be Hank. I've been saying it ever since the cross-platform announcement.

SDS

I agree it’s hank Aaron. Generally the live series has been the new big legend. I think anyone that was in the game before that you got from the market etc would be a bit of a letdown. Also think it needs to be somebody who will actually stay in a lot of lineups. A guy like manny Ramirez would seem like a popular card but his defense probably wouldn’t last in most lineups very long. Coming off of mays and mantle I think Hank fits in well.

SDS

Joe DiMaggio, Hank Aaron, and Roberto Clemente. There's your AL, NL, and MLB collection rewards. Book it Dano

SDS

I've said for a while now that Henry Aaron is the player rights that will be acquired when they moved to cross platforms. It's only logical that he is the collection reward next year.

I was certain this years big collection that ended up being Trout was going to be DiMaggio. All the stadiums have a big "56 - Beat The Streak" billboard in them. It seemed so obvious.

SDS

Hoping for Hank or Josh Gibson

SDS

It’s only Hank if they had already secured his rights before he passed.

My top 5 most likely (new) would be:

  1. Hank (see above)
  2. Clemente
  3. DiMaggio
  4. Jeter
  5. Arod (he’s trying to rehab his image)
