Yea that is probably the reason I still have the amount of cards I have. Multiple times I decided to stop collecting and just sell. I then get bored trying to sell so many cards that I end up stopping after selling like a few.
I’m at 3755. Available cards for me now are all over 20k mt. One thing I’d add is if you are NMS you really need to lock everything.
- Will have Dirk this or next week.
Tried buying cards today at good prices, to see what progress I can make. Got to 3,583 with my MT dropping to 5.475mil.
I could get 18 token players from ruby to PD. Missing 2 Token Opals and a DM, but wouldn’t spend all those tokens on those. Missing around 80 base/Series1/Dynamic/HeatCheck cards. The Celtics cards are still overpriced for whatever reason.
Looks like it’s gonna be tough. I am only buying cheaper cards that are under 10k depending on what I can snipe. Once I get all the cheaper cards all that is left is the more expensive ones. Hoping for a good drop for the new season and a spotlight sim.
last 200 going to be most expensive ones ;-). I believe I spent about 4-5m for last 200 cards. Right now at 3950.
(not that you need any advice of course, but) for the 80 missing cards from the sets I would suggest mass bidding at below market, especially when Friday works packs are out - when I was collecting, I found it surprisingly easy to get cards at close to quick sell which were going for the 1.5-2.5 BIN (or more)
Yea I could see that you are spot on. I did some quick math counting all the players I could potentially acquire for non crazy prices. Possibly through snipes or if superpacks tank some prices. And I get to around 3800 before the new season of cards. 200’ish expensive cards is probably not doable as of now as I would have already used a lot of MT to get to 3800. I did put my 46 HOF Giannis up for 24 hours, but that isn’t going to get me there.
If I can’t get to 4000 cards until the season after next then is it even worth trying? There is already GOAT cards by then. The badge pack is not as valuable then. A big reason I wanted to do it was for the accomplishment. I have never got the top collector reward before. I may abandon ship on this mission.
Freaking sweet bro. You a collector? Or just wanted Dirk?
Originally I wanted Dirk - but after reviews - just 80hofs.
But as for now Dirk gets into my line up - to compliment Pippen and Shaq
Actually - fuck reviewers. Dirk really feels like best PF in the game - and I owned all PF available
I may have underestimated my ability to get to 4000. Going to try to keep sniping some more stuff before Friday. Hoping for a good amount of cards dropping. I also can still redeem 18 token players.
If only these takeoff players would drop in value that would make this easier. They are flying out of superpacks and there isn’t a HOF badge to exchange for them anymore. Yet they are still the same price.
I sold about 200 players and got back ~7-8m mt.
Final run is very expensive.
Yea I think I will get him this weekend. I haven’t locked anything in so I should get a good amount of MT back. Currently at 3,919 cards with 3.665M mt left with still around 10 random cards I want to get for 30K and under before Friday. I also have no takeoff players yet. So 10 diamonds /PD’s there for around 20k to 25k.
I hope you did get all historic courts and jerseys - it’s relatively easy - and gives decent bump.
Yea I have had the auctionable ones. I missed 12 of the reward jerseys that they released in the packs you got for winning a game like 2 weeks ago. It was RNG what you got but I definitely built up my collection with those packs.
I basically almost have everything I can get that is around 30k mt or under. I do have a couple of more expensive cards that I got on good bids.
Only currently attainable reward stuff I don’t have is the unlimited reward. One of the TTO RNG players. And domination Manu.
I thought that as well - but you can get historic jerseys and courts from token market. 3 tokens/pack. It’s random as well… I wasted about 1000 tokens or more to get every single one
Good too know thanks. I may open a few on Friday. Depending how many more cards I need. I feel like the final 30 or so packs I opened 2 weeks ago were duplicates. Those final 12 jerseys just wouldn’t come out of those packs.
Yep. Its going to be bunch of duplicates - but I managed to pull every single one. Tokens are useless anyway… and I still have 1800 tokens…
It seems much easier for you than me. I’m at 3810 with maybe 15 available cards 20-30k mt, but really everything over 30k mt
Did you get almost all the early release reward cards? That’s the only difference I can figure. And the other guys who got to 4000 seem to have followed the same path as me
