Should I lock in for Ohtani?

SDS

I’ve got all the cards. Duplicates of a bunch hoping to sell in a few days for profit. Trying to decide if he’s worth it or not?

Kind of also feel like I beat the game. Could just parallel these All stars all to 99 easily so 🤷🏻♂️ What is gonna be left to do?

SDS

It's an unprecedented card...

But...

If you are relying upon TSN to tell you to do it, then that's on you sir.

Apparently all 99s are not equal. Some have 125 power, con etc. Those the ones ya want, thats end game i think. Have all your players and crazy stats

SDS

If you have the collection done he is incredibly expensive for a guy with no outlier and a lot of useless cards. So just comes down to what you want.

Maybe play the game for the love of the game? Why does there always need to be something to do...something to unlock...something to level up or some sort of achievement?

SDS

I did and I'm enjoying him. Need something to burn stubs on, so why not. Also Prince Fielder is really good, his swing is great.

SDS

If you have the stubbs to blow why not, he really is fun to use and your not going to get another card like him. Plus you know hes going to be needed for the big set which has not disappointed yet.

SDS

Waiting for Shark Map (tomorrow?) and Program to complete collection. Hoping it contains some free AS and HRD Packs to makes these prices go down a bit before locking these all in....

SDS

Do you need the stubs? Because as with the Jackie collection there will be times the ohtani cards are way down. You could always buy them back.

Of course it's worth it. All of those cards are excellent. What really would you be holding stubs for? It's already all star break and this game will be dead in no time. IMO there just isn't any advantage for hoarding stubs right now. Of course I'd sell any duplicates, but keep most.

SDS

Heck yea I locked them all in. We're talking about Ohtani here

SDS

I feel like Ohtani is pretty easy to hit. I’d have rather had a LF Ohtani with the juiced hitting stats.

SDS

Yeah the mixed reviews have me worried for sure. Don’t get me wrong I want Ohtani. But I could also Parallel up the 95 and he’d probably get the job done most of the time and that card is dirt cheap. Can also play it every game.

Yea that makes the most sense honestly

SDS

To be honest I don’t really have any desire to do this set and I have 1.4 million with about 200 K in auction-able cards and am about to make WS….so another 300 K probably.

I don’t really want Prince or Ryne and I don’t want to keep trotting Ohtani out onto the mound when there are better pitchers out there only because I locked him.

At this point I’m not even worried about the “big set”. I mean who could it possibly be? Knowing SDS they’ll continue the trend of juiced 1B and make it Babe Ruth.

SDS

Whatever you do, don’t listen to people that can’t pitch without outlier lol.

Prince and ryne are free with TA3 anyway. Ohtani best quality might be carrying an extra bench bat if you can get away with 4 starters. Plus maybe using in relief after the ph.

SDS

Hes going to probably be required for a voucher in the upcoming collection(s).

SDS

I bought all the HRD and cheap All Star game cards in hope they will go up when the pack leaves the store. I’m reluctant to lock the set in, because it’s so expensive.

I also feel like when you get cards at this level it becomes less about how good the card is and more about how the user is.
