Do I keep or sell?

SDS

So I caved last night and bought two 50 packs
Pulled Trout and Degrom.

I really wanna complete the live series collections but I'm also not in a rush. Do you guys think their prices will eventually fall enough in a few months to be worth selling right now? Or will they both still be around the same maybe a little lower?

SDS

Do you have anywhere to go with those stubs right now? Did you already have both of them prior to pulling? If not I would say you could always just hold them and use them/work on parallels and see what the price does if you don't need those stubs for something else. I guess really the question is do you need Trout and Degrom to complete the LS collection or are you wanting to use those stubs to complete the rest of it?

SDS

I doubt they'll fall unless they do another pack sale like this, but that's not likely. Maybe keep them until the next stub sale and then cash in? I pulled my only Trout during the last stub sale and sold him for 515k (before tax). He went up to like 600k I believe as well.

Honestly, I say keep them, finish collections because Trout should be in your lineup all year.

I recently got Trout and locked him in to finish LS collection. His price only really drops at the end of the year, You are really locking him in to get to Chipper. If you want to use Chipper now then you should complete the LS. Degrom and Trout can both be used all year. Chipper is worth it.

I pulled them from the packs I didn't have them before. Most of my LS collections are in low 20s and a couple in lows 30s.

I am ok with waiting to complete the collections until later I'm just wondering if there prices are gonna stay similar to what they are now or will they cut in half later?

Like should i sell high and buy them less later?

The LS collection is the first thing I complete. I mean Chip, Papi, Soriano, Glavine, Hoffman, Gagne and all the other Legend cards you can use for future collections. Plus it’s such a great feeling knowing that’s done and can focus on everything else and am able to sell every LS diamond you pull for profit at that point

SDS

Keep them and use them. Work the market and get Acuna and any other high $ live series to complete the collections. Once the pack sales end the prices will slowly go up again. Eventually they will start to come down but the high diamonds usually stay high for a while. the 85-89 always move to quick sale.

SDS

the prices on those 2 cards will fall. the first 99 center fielder released, trout goes down, same with pitcher. we're in july its only a matter of time before these cards start coming out.
