Bought Trout

SDS

Pulled a few diamonds that got me close to 280k, sold everything else I could to bring be to 330k. Put in a buy order last night and here he is this morning. Now I’m broke, but atleast I have a gatekeeper and someone I should be able to roll with most of the year.

SDS

You're a brave man for trusting these servers with 330k.

With the parallax program he will be useable the entire year only being replaced by a better version of himself. Hats off to SDS for the program. They found a way to make live series cards viable for much longer.

No, actually he won't. Every card, except for cap, gets pxp. Trout gets leveled up, but so do they making it a wash. Now, I do agree that LS cards will be viable longer, but when an elite Mays, Griffey, etc., comes out for the outfield, he comes out and the work begins to level them up.

SDS

The parallel system only delays the inevitable but it sure is a cool concept ad does make the high end cards able to compete with the 99's for a few weeks longer. I am waiting for someone to lvl up a common to tier 5 would love to see that.

SDS

I do enjoy the parallel system. Great job of taking the prestige idea from last year and making it so that everyone can participate. Now, I'm struggling with taking out Anthony Rizzo (close to lvl 3) for Pujols or Giambi and starting all over again. Great problem to have 🙂

Ha ha ha.... yea the marketplace was very..... slow. But (knock on wood) I haven’t had any missing stub issues since the 1st weekend.

SDS

Parallel is huge for us NMS players. I wont have a full card collection this year like I normally would so upgrades will be few and far between. Now I can at least level up cards.

Yes, actually he will. His card at level 5 will be usable all year. There's no debate

Been thinking about doing the same, been flipping with a little success so im about halfway there, trying to be disciplined and not do team collections of any sort unless they pay for themselves with rewards until I get him.

Yeah, this thread is kinda talking me into saving up for Trout too. But I have a loooong way to go. Only team collection I’ve done so far is the Twins because I had to have Kirby Puckett on my team.

How that's Puckett play? Looks like a good card.

SDS

I did the same yesterday. 331k....hurts my stub count but the BR rewards help.

Tigers, mariners, giants, pirates, orioles for me, like I mentioned the rewards basically pay for them, might do a couple more like rangers, royals but keep my eye on the prize.

How that's Puckett play? Looks like a good card.

Original power is meh, but once he is tier 2 or higher he starts rolling. And hits hard line drives from anywhere in the zone. And fielding is as good out of the gate vs a End game Mays or Griffey.

Again, no he won't. That same plus 5 pxp also applies to elite 99s, leaving the gap right where it started. If you want to play a card that's inferior to them, that's your prerogative.

He wasnt comparing it to anything. He only mentioned it being usable all year. You don't need to explain card levels to me. Try reading.

I did the same yesterday... I flipped enough to get over 300K, and just took the plunge. The rest of my team is hot garbage, but now with Trout it’s more like... lukewarm garbage. Levelling him up is what convinced me to go for him first, plus at least a guy like him makes things like the national map Conquest grind more tolerable. Zero regrets.

That was the first team I finished. Loving Kirby up
