You know the series is called FaceS of the franchise right? None of these are exactly crazy choices

Well if that is the case EVERY player has a face. So therefore EVERYONE on the 40 man roster is a face of the franchise

Wow, I bet you’re so fun at parties.

You heard them say why they picked who they picked, right?

You weren't gonna get a FotF Trout, Freeman, or Yellich b/c they didn't want to just repeat diamonds. They wanted to spread the wealth.

Ok sure...so it’s non-diamonds only..They still missed the mark on a number better choices

LeMahieu, Machado, Thor, Suarez, Semien, Jensen, Story, etc

Btw...how is Harper a diamond and Soto not.

Lemahieu played for the yankees for 1 season and isn't a homegrown talent, I can see where you see Machado has the contract but Tatis is still the face of the padres, Thor makes sense, can't disagree with that one. Votto literally is the face of the Reds and has been for 15 years. Suarez has has one good season. Olson has been in Oakland his entire career and has been a consistently good player, semien has had 2 good seasons, Jansen is a relief pitcher, IMO that can't be anywhere associated with a face of the franchise unless you are Mariano Rivera, Story is a diamond, thus why he is not.

I mean, the Reds?

Cardinals as well. Yadi is no doubt the face of the franchise.

SDS

Josh Bell for the Pirates... would probably be a legitimate “face.”

SDS

Peralta works for the Dbacks. But some teams they kinda had to be creative and do different players. Trout is obviously the face of the franchise for the Angels. But did anyone who’s played for awhile really expect a free Trout card? Probably not.

SDS

We’re really grasping at anything and everything to get a little upset about on here now huh? The FOTF are fine. A lot of them are representing the players that have the longest tenure on their given team or it’s because the actual FOTF is already Diamond.

Thor is the only one that I would agree with you, he would have been a way better choice for the Mets.

That Lorenzo Cain card is Booty cheeks too. Should have been Ryan Braun or Keston Hiura. It’s possible they are going to release some these down the road in the team affinity’s as different card types like flashback hardware, breakout, all-star, rookie. We will just have to wait and see.

SDS

Every FOF card is correct except the cubs. You should be originally signed or drafted by that team and Rizzo was not so I don’t see how he is but that’s why machado can’t be the padres FOF

Schwarber would have been cool

Yes exactly that’s what a FOF card is all about that would of been real sweet.

SDS

We get the more known and better ones later, that’s why not all the parts of the team affinity are unlocked yet

@Maverick31762 said in New Name for Face of the Franchise:

Instead of Face of the Franchise. It should be called better card for the best player on a horrible team (Boyd, Mancini, Merrifeild), Prospect that hasn't entirely lived up to full potential (Guerrero, Tatis) or Slightly improved version of the third or fourth best guy on the team.

Seriously, is there a single FOTF card that represents that actual face of the franchise. Maybe WhiteSox is the legit FOTF.

Merrifield is actually a good player tho...

SDS

@Jholla31 said in New Name for Face of the Franchise:

Yeah, I was pretty upset not to get a 93-95 Freddie Freeman instead of an 89 Ozzie Albies. Albies is the third best player on the Braves, at best. He's "a" face of the franchise, but not "THE" face of the franchise. I agree that it is a little misleading.

Also, I realize that Acuna will probably be Atlanta's FOTF in another year or two, but Freddie has been the guy since Chipper retired.

You realize this is just tier one of these fotf and those guys are prob in the higher ones

They haven't missed [censored] lmao this is tier one, there's higher end ones coming every season of the year

Problem with Bryant is there’s a legitimate shot that he won’t be on the north side in a few months (if they even play this year) and SDS probably wanted to avoid having a FOTF card that represents a team he doesn’t even play for anymore.

SDS

All I know is I have a harder time pitching to FOTF Juan Soto than I do 99 Mantle.

SDS

Cant have 90+ rated Face of the franchise cards in a program that takes 3-4 hours to get one. There would be zero value for Live Series Diamonds and ruin the market.

SDS

Cough cough* Rizzo

SDS

It more about finding guys they can realistically give low diamond cards to launch the game. If it was truly Face of the Franchise everybody would have a free Trout right now.
