NMS tips for the live series collection in 21

SDS

So 21 is gonna be my second year in Diamond Dynasty and I want to finish the live series collection without spending money. If you have any general tips for that I'd appreciate it

SDS

Invest in cards while they're low tier. Aka throw like 30k stubs at a silver whos gonna go gold, 100k at a gold to go diamond, ect.

Otherwise flip the market and generally just play the game.

SDS

Playing the game is #1.
Investments in silvers going gold and gold to diamond if you can afford it is #2.

ight thank you. yeah I realised how much you collect from moments and so on but like you said i wanna work the market more. I'm a big yankees fan so I was happy to at least get Mantle towards the end of the year

thank you
I'll do so when I get some stubs

the problem with investing in golds to diamonds at the beginning of the year is it usually is a couple months after the game is released for someone to get upgraded to diamond. it would be very hard to predict who will stay hot for the long of a period. after they start making more golds to diamonds that always the best way to make stubs

SDS

The investments that Ikansu mentioned are a popular way to make stubs, but I finished the Live Series collection in 17, 19, and 20 easily without ever investing. I don't like to have a lot of stubs tied up in something which may or may not work out. I prefer to just flip on the market until I make enough to purchase any card I want. The market moves pretty quickly, especially early on. You can earn a lot through low volume high margin flips, and high volume low margin flips.

If you don't know much about flipping, that's a whole different conversation but the basics are buy low, sell high, and be mindful of the 10% tax. Flipping on the website is also often more convenient than using the in game market.

Cool, thanks. Yannik is popular in French; I thought we might from the same area. Well, enjoy The Show!

It also sucks when EVERYONE knows a Gold is going to go Diamond and it takes SDS awhile to upgrade that player. Especially when, after the upgrade, because so many people invested that Diamond is close to QS value.

Another thing to add: if there are ever any low tiered (Silvers) cards that are Event rewards (talking about you Rookie Machado) buy multiples of them.

By the time they come out with a large Collection reward (Bonus 19, Trout 20) you can usually triple your investment.
.
Also, buy any PR Reward cards when they are first released. Because once a new RS starts; they're no longer available. At least until the end of the game's cycle

The last tip is a great way to make stubs. At one point I had over 100 Manny Machado rookie cards, sold them all for 2k a piece, could of had a lot more.

I’d honestly rather work a couple extra hours or sell stuff on eBay and buy stubs than spend countless hours flipping to claim “nms”.

Absolutely. I say I'm going to buy up a bunch of event rewards every year and never pull the trigger. Man would buying 50 Brooks robinsons at 8k a piece in April would have done me wonders

Well within your rights. Do what works for you. That's the beauty of the market: there's no "one way".

All the Mandalorians that I know would strongly disagree with you, sir.

SDS

Yeah, but most of them are dead anyway.

You could also buy up the golds and silvers that are spread out through XP rewards. Majority of the time they are needed for AS,PS,Rookie collections as well. I bought bunch of Don Sutton Gold cards and made money off those. Equipment is a tricky one and Stadium sounds.
