Live Series Collections

SDS

I have 538,000 stubs right now with all but the Giants collection to do. Does anyone have any recommendations on where I should start?

SDS

How does your team look right now

SDS

I would get trout first and go from there

SDS

SP:
Cliff Lee
Greg Maddux (I can sell him for more stubs)
Corbin
Edward Cabrera
Quinn Priester
Bullpen:
Too lazy too list out, strong w chapman
😄 Joe Torre
1B: Jim Thome
2b: Marcus Semien
3B: Ball Player (crime dog)

Part of me says do it, the other part says F no. You need way more then what you have to complete the collection. Trout and acuna cost more then you currently have.
You have numerous other cards that cost over 100k each and you'll have to get all of the other non sense you'll never use on your team.

Your team isn't bad. There's tons of good cards to come still. Totally up to you. I wasn't going to do it but I pulled trout out of a standard pack, kinda felt obligated to do the collection after that.

I still need tatis bellinger and Betts then I'm done with it

didn't mean to post it twice mb, but yeah I could just get trout for now because he is an amazing card and build from there

But I have soloed(?) it down to either the AL West or the NL East, which one do you say?

First year playing and I have now completed Live Series, Mo and one card away on Series 42. My team is way better than I am. Still think I might have had more fun not completing collections and just buying what I want. However, some of my favorite cards can only come from collections. Everybody says to start with Trout and I get that thinking...but there are more ways to do it. I think starting with Trout is great if you start at launch when everything is expensive...but right now LIVE Series 85-89 are very reasonable and you can really feel like you are making progress by knocking those out as you go. I would suggest picking a division to start with and going about it that way more than anything. As for your question on NL East or AL West...pros and cons to both. I feel like Acuna and Degrom have better chances of increasing in price...but I wouldn't put anything past Trout.

Thanks for the advice, this is the approach I took last year after a flash sale and prices are super low right now, but the last question I have is NL or AL to complete first?

SDS

Henderson has not been good to me

SDS

I don't think they're worth it now there will be better or as good already here or coming.

If you’re absolutely going to do the collection -Trout, Yankees, AL, then NL. Soriano isn’t even making most people lineups. Once you get vs decent pitchers Finley is just flailing around blind.

Best cards in the game IMO 1)Chipper 2)Trout 3)Ortiz. As far as lock ins go Posada is one of the best also.

yeah, I don't think I will be touching the NL, as of now I just completed the AL East, just enough left for trout

Yes you can always just try trout out without locking him in. Some people like Tanana tho. I wasn’t a big fan. But after using Trout for 100 ABs you won’t want to get rid of him lol. His swing is so sweet.

yes! His MVP Card last year raked, I think I hit .445 with him, but I also loved the signature ortiz last year aswell, so I am definitely going to push for the AL

SDS

Rip pax all day bruh

Personally I start the collections with the teams with no/ cheap diamonds. In this case it was the Twins to get Puckett, Cubs to get Wood, etc. I guess it depends how much you want a specific reward tho.
