Some days you just get lucky!

So I have been slowly picking up Cardinal players but out of the more expensive ones I had only picked up Flaherty and Goldschmidt, passing on Miller because over 3,000 stubs for a low gold reliever, even a lefty seemed a bit too much.

Today, I earned my first pack for 9 logins (thanks double dailies) and low and behold the last card is a gold card. I flip that sucker and sure enough, it is Miller! Score.

I slot him in to my lineup and go play a stronghold game in conquest against the White Sox on veteren difficulty, beating them 7-0. I get to the post screen reward and I am shocked to see a diamond card listed there. It is only the second time in my years of playing that I remember seeing that. I decide to remove the cards one at a time to see how long the game was going to tease me but when I get down to 2 cards the diamond is still there. I remove the last card and I am shocked that I earned the diamond.

Welcome to the team Ronald Acuna Jr

I expect my luck is done for the year.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who goes from auto-skipping the post game screen to slowly removing cards 1 by 1 when a diamond shows (I also do it for golds). Its both torture and exciting.

Congrats on your good fortunes though.

I had the same exact same post-game situation the other day, but I wasn't as lucky. He was the last card to disappear.

SDS

Well here's to good luck. FWIW, the HRD Acuna from last year was my favorite card to use (non-ichiro division).

SDS

Yup. Packed Trout literally 10 minutes into the game's life, sold and couldn't have been happier with all that transpired from it. Never have I ever had luck that quickly, really bolstered my team from the get go.
