I was expecting you to mention warping pitch speeds

Do NOT spend any stubs, Do NOT collect (lock in) any players.
Build your team around high diamonds & 'No Sell' cards that can't be bought or sold on market.
Grind Blake Snell Player Program & create sell orders for the 3 diamond players you receive to get a good base (~50K) of stubs. (again DO NOT collect any players, you don't actually need Snell, just the stubs.)
Grind Jackie Robinson Player Program for ~30 packs, more stubs, plus "No Sell" 94 All Star Legend Jackie Robinson card for your squad.
Choose 93 CP Dennis Eckersley or 90 OF Carlos Gonzalez from Evolution Player Pack & grind that out for it to become a 'No Sell' diamond located in XP Reward Path
Choose 85 SS Adalberto Mondesi, then 86 RP Charlie Morton from Classic Choice pack in XP Reward Path (no sell)
Conquest to grind missions, Jackie Robinson, & for stubs, xp & packs
Create sell orders, don't quick sell.. any diamond you pull from any pack.
Showdowns give you vouchers for Team Affinity grind.. find a couple high diamond players from Stage 2 so you don't have to go to the Market & splurge on players.. I would go for Reds 95 overall SP Nick Lodolo & Cardinals 95 overall 3B Nolan Gorman for example (all 'No Sell')
Grind Monthly Awards program for 3 more high diamonds for your squad..
97 overall Cody Bellinger, 95 overall Carlos Correa & 93 overall Didi Gregorius ('No Sell')
Featured Programs (Inning Bosses) I would start from the most current (4th inning) down.. which would get u 96 overall Felix Hernandez & more than 100K in stubs if u sell the other 3 bosses. (again never collect so you could always sell)
Go straight for Mike Trout with all the stubs you earn ( for live series collections) a lot of people make the mistake of buying every card besides the top 5 or so most expensive but it's way quicker to buy from the top down.. (most important)
Choose 87 CP Mariano Rivera from Legend Choice Pack in XP Reward Path
98 SP Hal Newhouser, 99 SP Corey Kluber, 96 CP Rollie Fingers from XP Reward Path (no sell)
99 OF Reggie Jackson, 99 2B/3B Ryne Sandberg from XP Reward Path (no sell)
Joe Morgan for sure
I believe he goes by the name of “Coach”
Awards Joe Morgan
123 CON R
107 POW R
92 FLD ( 2B)
92 SPD 99 STL 99 BR AGG
Trust me this is the card you’re looking for.. plus you already have righty bats to platoon
As for Griffey it depends how close you are in that 10th inning program
Just wondering what your opinions are on the best affordable 3rd basemans? I currently have POTM Justin Turner and 92 diamond Gary Sheffield.
Try Eduardo Escobar from topps now
At first, I didn’t mind the crazy diving plays this year. But after an out of position player makes one, yeah this needs to be fixed…but probably won’t be
Incredible how easy it is to make diving plays. Whoever implemented this can go kick a large rock
Haha that’s a good one but I had someone make a diving play at 2B with Cedric Mullins and make the throw lefty

What was your strategy collecting these cards? Is there collections to stay away from as far as cost goes?
I've got a long way to go. Just don'tknow how to attack this thing.
I've got Cover athletes and Rookies. Wish me luck.
Most efficient way would be to complete live series collection, then George Brett collection, then Jackie, then McCutchen since all those cards add up quick and once you complete LS the rest became easier
I used showzone to know exactly how many stubs/cards needed so I’m not just guessing.. right now I’m probably a million stubs away from getting Cutch after completing the rest & could easily get the stubs from that new Mookie Betts program and upcoming Legends of the Franchise program. Good luck!
My last completed Program was Rizzo lightning card. I'm eyeballing the All-Star program for Dominguez. I'm wanting Biggio and Thome. Maybe Ortiz.
What programs do you suggest after a long layoff? I won't be touching the Extreme, so don't even go there.
I always go for the best cards with the quickest grind, so..
- 99 David Ortiz
- 99 Minnie Minoso
- 99* Ken Griffey Jr.
Those MA Rafael Devers / Yordan Alvarez are still end game
Biggio is a beast vs LHP
