Working The Market

SDS

This is my first year actively working the market from my computer at work. However this is the most frustrating thing ever. I always get outbid when trying to buy. Then they keep piling on.. Even if I go 1,000 above the next highest. Any advice?

Have patience. It's hard to flip quickly and effectively earlier in the year when traffic is high. Put your orders in for what you want to purchase the card for and wait. It will most likely sell

It's probably your boss because you're not working. 🙄

What profit margins? There might be a few cards out there you can make Stubbs off of. Gaps are so tight on the market right now, after you figure the tax it’s nearly impossible to make any money!

The card flipping ship has sailed for now.
During early access it was insane. I was making around 60k an hour whenever I felt like it for 4+ days. Big profit margins (ie. buy for 250 sell for 750, buy for 350 sell for 1k) and I could buy and sell cards as fast as I could hit the buttons. Both buy and sell were often happening in 5 seconds or less.
And it was also quite steady on buying and selling much higher valued cards.

Plenty of cards to flip you just have to find them. I will flip anything that will make me a profit from commons to diamonds. Stadiums, Equipment and uniforms. Just find what you want to flip and if you want to flip high, medium or low risk cards.

i have made 7,000 today just flipping common and bronze cards

I always seem to have the most luck flipping live series golds. Only making 200 to 300 profit off each one, but if you get enough orders built up then it starts to add up really fast.

SDS

I only need the Dodgers and Padres and I will have all teams collected. Did this strictly by flipping golds and playing the game. Pulled a couple diamonds from free packs but nothin too special.

SDS

It sucks. Too many people don't know what they are doing. I cant stand seeing a card go from sell now 1450 to 800 just because 3 people are leap froging each other. I just put my order in and leave. If it hasnt sold by the next day ill reexamine.

Yes...never go a 1000 above or below

SDS

Diamond sponsorships are huge right now, I make 2500 profit on at least 4 of them at any given time, you do really have to babysit every few seconds for those 1 stub undercutters.

Remember to do the math and factor in the tax. The margins are really pretty slim rn. I’m actually doing better just playing the game and selling the rewards. It’s 100% profit.
