Final HUGE Collection Thoughts ???

SDS

I strongly doubt it will be an added voucher towards getting Mo, Betts & Kershaw. Especially with many already having completed the 15 vouchers needed for the 3 of them. I just fiinished the final voucher for Kershaw 3 days ago & already have him at P2.

I do however think this final HUGE collection will consist of Finest cards because its the ONLY card class that does not have a collection for it this year. I also think many are reading into the word "HUGE" within the wrong context. This collection is mostly like going to be "HUGE" in regards to it's prize card to complete it rather then the quantity of cards needed to complete it. Only cards left are those from Finest Pack editions (1, 2, 3 & 4 if it gets to 4) & the reward cards from TA5.

Thats my take on this. What's yours?

We’re getting a new big collection that’s an add-on to the Rivera/Betts/Kershaw collections, and we’re also getting a Finest collection that can be used towards the big one.

Also, there’s only 2 Finest packs. We aren’t getting any more. The website confirmed this by only having two “Secret” headings, which were the two packs.

SDS

My predictions

Finest - 50 (including the 30 from today)
Posteason - You'll need Saeger
Veteran - 50
All Star- 60
Breakout- 35
Rookie - 50
Future Stars - 30 *Maybe 35 on this one)
42- You'll Need Jackie
HR Derby/AS - You'll Need Shohei
Monthly Awards - 60
Topps Now - 125 (that's a crazy number, but if you have done all of them, you would have it)
Signature - 45
Awards - 45
Prime - No idea with this one, but logically, it would be 25
Prospects - All 40
2nd Half Heroes - 30
Milestone - 70
Rivera - You'll need Mariano
Kershaw- You need Kershaw
Mookie - You'll Need Mookie

That's 20 collections, and I think you'll need 18 vouchers (so you can skip 2).

Just guesses on my part, but that's what I think

SDS

It will be Ken Griffey Jr at the end. Not sure about the ones before him

I agree with this, I think Prime you will need 25 or 26 out of the 28

How "HUGE" could the prize card be in a game that has close to 200 99's?

SDS flooded the game with way too many end-game cards way too early this year. In a different thread someone mentioned that there were only 22 total 99's a few years ago. Sigh...

To me for it to be worth the effort it will have to be a fully maxed card. I agree there are too many 99's

Pepe Alazar or the maxed out CAP archetype.

Exactly! Pepe would be so awesome or being able to fully max a CAP

Lightning also does not have its own collection as it has in past years.

Anyone think we may see a Superfractor category? We had the "prestige" category last year with Trout...

They were technically different cards though. Parallels are the same card, just with enhanced attributes and rating.

SDS

The Machine! El Hombre. The great right handed hitter since Hank Aaron. Albert Pujols, cone on down.

Griffey would be swell too but I'm a Cards fan and will always be an Albert mark.

That is a good point, had not considered they were different cards last year

The first two collection rewards were flashbacks (current players), and I expect that theme to continue. There were just too many huge legends in this game this year that would have made perfect 'big' collection rewards, that were not in the first 2 phases of it, to expect that to change now. So for the candidate pool, I'm looking for current players that don't already have end game cards, and the big three are: Pujols, Trout, and Tatis, Jr.

Tatis, Jr. had a big enough 2021 that I would expect him to be involved with the Finest series/collection/program. That eliminates him. They already made an outfielder part of this with Betts, so that eliminates Trout, and makes ALBERT PUJOLS the favorite to be the card!

Griffey and Foxx. Tatis is Padres Finest. Would expect Trout and Pujols to be bosses.
