I saw the card in the Brewers flashbacks and legends in my inventory but I cannot figure out how to get it. Is it just in packs?

# How do I get the 99 ovr Eric Thames?

After you level up past Diamond 99 in the XP Path, I guess another tier opens up which is "Prestige" or "Elite" or something and you unlock a 99 overall TS18 Finest Jose Ramirez, TS17 Playoff George Springer, and the POTM Eric Thames (which was one of my favorite cards ever!)

I'm taking Thames first if I ever get there.

Level 25 of the prestige path is where you can choose this card. once you get to prestige, level 25 prestige is the xp equivalent of all 100 diamond levels. its ridiculously far out.

It’s not the equivalent of all 100 diamonds. It’s just one level of prestige is equivalent to 4 normal levels. So 100 levels after you get to diamond 100

Level 100 prestige is equivalent of Bronze 1 to diamond 100, Level 25 prestige is somewhere from bronze to like silver 50 since bronze levels require less XP

Yeah I realize that now. I just misunderstood it as taking the same amount of XP from bronze 1 to diamond 100. Esentially there are 8 stages of levels. Silver 1, Gold 1, Diamond 1, Prestige 1, prestige 25, prestige 50, prestige 75, and prestige 100

Yes, it is 42,000 xp between levels in prestige. so once you get to prestige 1, it takes 4x as long to level up as before. so 1-25 prestige takes roughly the same amount of xp as it did to go from 1 diamond to 100 diamond.

I do not remember the Thames card being a 99. The other two yes but not the Thames card. But I’m an old man.

I’m a little glad there isn’t a Rockies player in that choice pack or else I’d be XP grinding myself brain dead lol

I feel you. I really want thames but if there was a yankee in there id be done for

Are level 1-99 regular XP all the same or does the XP scale up depending on what level you are? Dumb question but I haven’t ever seen it laid out.

The real question is why on God’s green Earth is there a 99 ovr Eric Thames?? Lol

I mean a 78 wouldn't be very exciting after that grind, and they're using throw back cards that mean a lot to those of us who've been playing the game for several years.

So that, mostly. Actually, that's all, that's the entire reason.

Yeah I get that, I just don’t like the idea of Eric Thames getting a 99, meanwhile Mike Trout is a 95. It just doesn’t feel right...
