Some LS Cards Still Tanking

SDS

I've noticed that even though most prices for LS cards across the market have recovered, some teams have more cards still going for > 100 stubs. I've tried buying all those up to bring the prices up a little bit, but they just keep going below 100.

The teams most affected by this are:

Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, Tampa Bay Rays, and the New York Yankees. All AL East teams, strangely enough.

Why is this? Can we fix this?

It's live series, it's not going to keep going up, and now with exchanges pretty much done to, it only has further to drop

There are so many free packs with the TA5 that I don't think 1 person buying them up is going to do anything.

I don't understand what is so confusing, and no, there is nothing to fix. It's November. Most people who are going to complete the LS collection have done so, most people who would exchange for TA5 have already done so, and there are HUNDREDS of packs given out in TA5 which provide even more of those now useless live series cards.

If you're using the live series for flipping, pick something else.

Surprised some people are still flipping honestly

Why would I leave live series flipping when it has made me stubs? lol

Because if it starts to tank, it only makes sense to find something else, I'm always moving around the market.

It "has" made you stubs, that's in the past, if you feel the margins aren't there, it's fine to go to something else instead of questioning what's wrong with the market. Atleast that is what makes most sense to me. It's a market, it changes overtime, especially based on the time of year

Some of us didn't know how to flip early on.

This is my first year playing and when I first heard about the concept of flipping, I thought, "wow, what a monumental waste of time!" That was because I didn't know the potential. Then along came the companion app and a buddy who showed me why my collections were not too great and my stub count was pathetic.....And so I flipped. And flipped, first just on the weekends and only for a little while, and all of a sudden for the first time, my stub count said 1,000,000. So my few times a week habit, turned to everyday and my collection grew...Ohtani, Mookie, Wagner and Gehrig, flip,flip, flip, flip......and now, despite having every card and a few Million to spare, I still want to flip. I know I can stop any day. I don't have a problem....everybody flips. What if they drop the first 100 ovr Barry Bonds/Randy Johnson hybrid with 4 outliers and a p5....flip, flip, flip, flip.....

Hi, my name is Bradley...and I'm a flipper.
