Anyone Willing to Try This Experiment?

SDS

I'm a miser who's working on saving up my stubs for the big fish and the other players who cost over 100k stubs. With 200,000 stubs, I'm on the fence about cashing in on this stub sale, so I was wondering if someone could partake in an experiment.

Buy the 50 pack bundle and tell me what you pull. Mainly, list what gold and diamond cards you get and what pack you got them from (30th pack for example).

I want to know if this is worth it, or if it's just a rip-off.

And if you pull Trout, please provide proof.

What we get has no bearing on what you get.

It’s not worth it. Buying packs is never worth it. Just keep saving or use that nice bank roll to flip cards on the market

I know that. I'm just curious to see if people actually do have success with packs.

Don't buy any packs until you finished your collections is the best advice I can give you.

When they had this pack sale last year, twice I bought 20x 50 bundles which yielded 1000 packs and 20 BIAH pack. Both times I made a profit but that’s only because I pulled Trout both times.

Last year though, Trout was going for 300K and the next highest card was only 100K. The biggest perk for doing this last year was that you could complete the entire TA with just exchanges so buying all these packs would yield a ton of silvers just for that purpose.

Thing is, you then have to wait until market rebounds to sell off for max profit

Do not do it.

Excellent advice. Buying packs is a complete loser otherwise. I bought 5 50 pack bundles and came away with 4 low diamonds.

Yep! All of mine barely broke 5k.

Just bought 150 packs(because I wanted to just to be clear). 18 golds, 1 diamond equipment, 1 diamond Jersey, Starling Marte, Verlander. I buy packs because it's fun, not because it's a good idea to open them

I'm guessing it was the Live Series Verlander and not the All-Star card? I shelled out 50k for him because I'm a Tigers fan haha

Only buy packs the first couple of weeks to start the LS collections; once you’re left with silvers and above, go with buy orders, exchanges and what the free packs give you. I only need Trout now, so packs are a no-no, even though I got jittery and bought a 50 bundle last night and made back about 80% of the 37,500 stubs.

That's not a bad return. The thing that gets me is that a lot of the folks who post that they got Trout don't post any proof with it. I need a clip or a screenshot to know if they're truthful but most don't bother.

Yeah, but I dinked and dunked the market and exchanges to squeeze every stub I could get! Posey for 5.4k and golds at QS basically, the rest silvers through exchanges. Not worth it but at 37,5k I went for it, meh… I’ll keep saving until Trout and hope he doesn’t jump back up to 500k in the meantime

SDS

I pulled Trout last night from a solo pack I got for locking in ball player quirks. It’s all random.

SDS

Buying packs hasnt been worth it since the first 2 weeks when they were juiced

I pulled Trout 9 times last year, and already twice this year.

However, I could care less if you believe me, so I didn't pre-record and save videos for this moment in time.

This is troll garbage, nobody cares about your mythical 9 trouts

I’ve had bad luck all year, but got two 50 pack bundles and it actually paid off for once.. pulled Acuna and Tatis Jr, and a few low money diamonds in the 6k range.. but it’s all just random luck

SDS

I bought a 50 pack and got 2 diamonds. Castellanos and a prospect. Think there was 5 or 6 golds in there too.

Edit to add I knew it wouldn’t be worth it before I opened packs. But I figured at half price I’ll open one.
