Just picked Bryant up as I had a ton of stubs and wanted to try him out in the Event as an Awards player. Main squad will be tough as I have Prestige Chipper, Prestige Sheffield and Prestige Killebrew to fight it out for 3B (OF is not an option with Prestige Walker/Mantle & Trout). 1B may be an option over Musial depending on how he plays.
For me the issue is how the FOTF makes you believe that Stage 2 will be players as good or better that Stage 1. I spent a ton of time and stubs getting all these Stage 1 entries to 70/70 to find out that Future Stars (basically prospects) are the next entry.
They could have dropped throwback Future Stars/Rookies of some really good old school players. I just think transparency would have been cool here given that a prospect set already existed. Now, if these Future Stars drop and we get powered up guys like Elroy Jimenez, Bo Bichette and others, that would be kind of cool. Just as long as the grind for these cards isn't so ridiculous that I can't complete them while also getting ranked seasons and events done too.
That's the risk that comes with the unknown. And these future star reveals are awesome players. Chicago has a 91 overall SP as their Stage 2!
Also keep in mind there are other unlocks along the way... Plus this is only Stage 2, there's also 3 and 4 and you are very well setup fir when those come out and I'm sure those will be some really top notch cards.
