    200k in a week is nothing; there were good stretches where I was making a 100 or more a day. Even up to a few weeks ago the stubs were rolling in as I was finishing up my kids team.

    Luis Tiant is great - but why was he NEVER close to affordable... and are there really that many Robin Yount fans?

    Even mid level cards, like the Al Kaline... great card, but why didn't it come down to Joe Morgan levels?

    Thoughts/ideas? Is it really all just availability?

    Both Tiant and Yount are rewards, so they are limited quantity. Not everyone that wins them are going to get rid of them, so that limits quantity even more. Tiant is a great pitcher, and Yount might be the best SS in the game which means high demand. High demand plus limited quantity gives you the prices that are there now.

    I may be wrong but is this the first year for early access for preorders?  If it is that may help with the server issues as well, keeps the number of players low for a few days before full release to make sure the servers can hold up.  I could be wrong though.

    If you're really into this game, you probably already or will have it preordered. I'm not sure traffic is going to be light, especially when you have a number of people that will be downloading the game. I for one will be on as soon as I can. The timer for 18 in my library shows that it will expire at 10 PM Central on the 22nd. Now does that mean that it is playable then or is it downloadable. If playable I will get on for a couple of hours, but off to bed at midnight as six will arrive soon after that.

    Where did you hear or see that at?

    The team epics may not be connected, but you can be sure that there will be desired players for all collects such as the entire league, the AL/NL, and divisions.

    None. If you use a cap you are straight bushleague.

    Some might say if you play video games you are bushleague. Cap is fun to play with, always has to be accounted for, and adds a key switch hitter to your lineup as well as providing lights out defense. He may not be real, but then again no one else really is either.

    Closer with Chris Young windup, knuckleball, sluve, and scurve and curveball

    Comment by KierannosaurusK 3/ 6/2018 6:56AM
    You can make him a pitcher, but if you try to put him in the pen he will have zero energy. Knuckleball is not an option; knucklecurve is.

    Now is it the same for 18; that I do not know.

    is it good or bad card like I’m tempted to buy him and use him 

    Comment by Quinn3_1_13 3/ 6/2018 8:59AM
    Some people hit with certain cards, and some don't. I don't like him, but that doesn't mean that you wouldn't.

    I don't really care for him, but everyone is different.

    Yeah, that's what I'm afraid has happened. None have sold for roughly a month now. Crazy.

    Limited quantity and collectors don't want to let him go. With 18 around the corner stubs are useless to many.

    where did the card come from? A pack? A reward?

    Comment by Quinn3_1_13 3/ 6/2018 8:11AM
    I believe it was an event reward from earlier this season.
