Incoming next big collection on August 3rd

SDS

per the stream

I feel like it's gotta be Dimaggio. They kept stressing the number 5 in the stream.

SDS

"Next Big One".

... Frank Thomas?

I’m gonna be stub rich after this

If it's number 5, I hope it's a monster diamond George Brett.

Pujols

My guess is that Pujols is the 10th Inning Solo Boss (like Griffey last year) as a Career Appreciation thing.

That's very possible. I think It's more related to the number 5 than the word "big" though

SDS

If they fix Johnny Bench and his swing, that's a #5 that would be endgame at catcher. Best combo of offense and defense behind the plate. Who am I kidding, he is still going to be underwhelming just like every year.

I'm still waiting for my Albies train to roll in.

While 5 is Joe DiMaggio's number and they did emphasize 5 many times, it would not make sense to have a second Yankee major collection reward. We already had Riviera, so another Yankee just doesn't make sense to me. By my own logic, that also eliminates Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, and Lou Gehrig (might see a 99 version of one or more of these in Extreme Moments). It won't be a pitcher (see Riviera above - and if it IS a pitcher, my bet is 99 MVP Pedro) so I'm thinking we haven't had a dominating catcher yet. So my money is on a C, with Bench, Carter, Rodriguez, Berra and Piazza as the possible candidates.

Gotta take Berra out of the running if we're not doing Yankees, but I would be surprised if it was any of those other guys. None of them are known for being fan favorites due to poor swings or not enough pop, so people would be massively underwhelmed. I love Gary Carter but I doubt many people will open their wallets for him.

When I heard #5 I zeroed in on Dimaggio and didn't even consider any other options, but Pujols is probably more likely. Frankly I wish they would just go back to Honus and make him the big collection every year. I liked that they explained it back in 19 that the T206 Honus is only for serious collectors in real life so it's only for serious collectors in the game, too.

Wonder if it’s a prospect “next big one”

Adley maybe?

I have a soft spot for all catchers and I am pulling for Adley to be a superstar one day, but even I think that would be a huge disappointment. I think it's gotta be like a "dude" dude. Not just some dude, dude. But like a duuuude.
