Keep or sell, market advice needed

SDS

Okay so I'm currently sitting on 260k stubs and I have all of the Topps Now guys for Buxton. I'm wondering if I should just collect them and use some of them on my team and get the Buxton and just use my 260k to fill in holes, or if I should sell the Topps guys and forget Buxton for now.

If I sell I'll make around 160k, and I'll still have a decent team with the no-sell guys. Plus over 400k. If I don't sell I'll have a slightly better team, and Buxton.

Also, are the prices for these Topps guys going to drop soon, or will they maintain or even go up as people move into the May stuff?

Any advice would be appreciated!

I'd collect personally Corbin Burnes alone is worth it he has excellent stuff

SDS

I HATE that he doesn't have a 4S fastball...

But either way he's no-sell so I'm stuck with him either way. He doesn't factor into the 160k I'd make...

SDS

I'm in the same boat. I feel like there's no way these Topps Now cards don't come down in the future, but I'm not sure I want to risk not having Buxton for some endgame collection

It all depends what your plan is. If completing the LS collection interests you for Chipper/Ortiz/Soriano, then by all means go ahead and sell and you’ll be happy you did when you accomplish it. If not, Buxton is a great card, top fielder, top speed, great pop. Most people would probably buy him at that price on the market. I locked those cards in, you get’em for free anyway and I already completed the Ls collection

You can still get Burnes though without doing the collection. But I would agree Burnes is almost as good as the Buxton card.

SDS

Take my advice as you would from any offline player.

I would say to do both. Buxton and Burnes are really nice cards, as is Ohtani. Plus you have him set for future collections.

Then with your 260k, get working on the NL west collection. Tatis hits way better for me than Ernie Banks, and that TN Paul Dejong was actually playing really well for me too when I was grinding the MA missions.

In addition to Tatis- Finley, Betts, Belli, Gagne and Hoffmann will all be on your team now. With inside edge and p3 Betts is playing at a 97 ovr some nights for me.

Between the NLW, TN and MA, I think that gives you plenty of flexibility to have a good team and not have to drop 50k stubbs on Nolan Ryan or other 90ish diamonds that will tank in price the moment some of these packs go into a conquest map or there's a flash sale

SDS

Keep them. You'll likely need them for the big collection later in the year.

SDS

Save for trout and get him out of the way. Or acuna or degrom. Those are the big 3

SDS

I think he's worth it personally, especially with the 5 parallels added. Yes, he will eventually get replaced by the Griffey/Mays/Mantel/Trout, etc., but he's probably top 3 until mid to late summer IMO. If you play online, you'll use him all year for Events he may be eligible for. The Topps Now prices only have one direction to go, unless they release more packs. They may go down some in the next several days, but won't stay low. Those that don't want Buxton will sell, those that want him will collect, as new players come on that one him, they'll buy the limited available and the price will continue to push up.
