Question for people that did the LS Collection.

SDS

While you were attempting this; did you lock in a team once you got all their players so you couldn't have to worry about late additions and to obtain a little XP tight away or did you wait until you had every team completed and locked them in for a HUGE XP and Stubs windfall at once?

I locked mine in each time i reached an xp milestone per team so i could unlock xp rewards along the way. But this was first year i have ever completed the collection.

SaveFarris's way is probabally smartest!👍

Last year is kind of a weird year to look at. The lack of season made it a bit easier to do collection due to no fluctuations or additions/removals for a few months. Made it a lot easier to obtain most of the cards imo.

Typically I lock in most cards almost right away, usually in increments of 10 as per the reward track to get a little bit of xp/stubs. Normally try and focus on the lower tiers first incase of cards moving up/down.

Although I really shouldn't give advice because I've only done it once (last year) and it took me a while still and frankly I'm super inefficient about it.

This. I try to go for cheap teams first, then get the big guys.

SDS

He is my thinking: On my main account, which I started around Nov, I had the LS Collection done within a month.

All the cards were near Quick Sell price so I just put in orders and waited.

Once I got EVERY SINGLE card for ALL 30 teams; I locked them in.

Naturally, it I want to do that for 21; I'll be waiting awhile.

I'm just wondering if its better to lock in a team once you have all the players and go team by team.

Ex: I want the Pirates and Red Sox TA1;payers so those are the team's I'm shooting for out of the gate.

I'll probably sell off any Golds/Diamonds (except big ones) that I get out of my pre-order packs to funds those two teams.

But after that?

I'll probably go based on what the collection reward is for thatbt am based on the amount of stubs it will cost.

Have you ever tried doing
All silver and below for every team
All golds
All diamonds
I roughly did it the way you did last year but it took me a good while

SDS

I don’t lock them in until I know I will not sell them to buy back later at a lower price. This practice has it’s risks of course. I am more concerned with earning stubs than any collections. Yet I end up doing most collections eventually.

No its easier by team because it contributes towards the next team in terms of stubs and xp.

Yes, in 2018 when the way you locked in collections was different.

So, you wait until you have every single player for a team. Then you lock them in?

SDS

Cheapest teams to most expensive unless I pull a card that jumps the team down to cheaper than the team in working on next(I use the show zone for this, it has a chart of cheapest to most expensive teams. Ex. Say I'm working on a team that has one diamond like the Red Sox(assuming sale is still diamond), and I pull Harper or Realmuto, if the remaining phillies diamond is cheaper then sale, I'll do the Phillies first. Hope that makes sense. It's a little unconventional but I've completed the LS by may the last two years

I lock in as I go. You get rewards for 10, 20, 30, and lastly, 40.

One. Team. At. A. Time

Choose the division first example NL WEST LA,COL,AZ,SD,SF Then you do the teams in the central and finished with the EAST. If you want to finish collection fast. Sell everything off by placing on the market do not quick sell any items. Only lock in the players in the Division you are working on. I work the market use those stubs to buy cards to finish collections. Once all the teams in the NL are done start on the AL.

SDS

What if I want to work towards two TA 42 cards and their in different divisions and different conferences?

SDS

We're talking 2 different things here: Collecting Live Series and TA. They may not mention the LS Collection rewards (sometimes they do, sometimes they don't), but they'll definitely go into detail about TA and how to acquire the cards they've been previewing for the past couple of weeks.

Correct. I assume they may bring back the same path they did last year (Stats, Moments, Showdown, Exchange, MTO, and LS Collection).

If I don't invest time into two MTO runs (Red Sox and Pirates) I'll atleast need to do the LS Collection for those two teams to get the points.

But then after that is where I'm stuck.

Guess I'll know more once I see the rewards.

So when you say one team at at time; do you sell every other card that isn’t that team in order to have stubs to complete the team you are on?
