Started two of the easiest Live missions on my All-AL team, the Tigers and Orioles. Should be fun enough checking for some of the obscure ones at decent prices every day

Edit: already up to 22 Tigers and 23 Orioles from first look-through, heh

I have 20 missions under my belt, but it's been that way for about a week now. Prices just aren't dropping that much even though we're going on 2.5 weeks from when this feature was introduced. I find that a little disappointing and wonder if fewer packs are getting ripped or if people are really OPEC'ing the heck out of the supply.

A bit of both I think. Cards are more expensive, so you need PP on hand to make a deal, just in case. Also, the way that many, many live bronzes and silvers are just unavailable on the market has me think that there has to be a flock of hawks that linger on the auction house all day and look for collections-related low-tier cards that they can snatch up for 35 PP, then immediately relist them for 1,000.

I still haven't completed the sophomores mission because I can't get any of the low-tier cards. I mean, I *do* have the required amount of cards, but that includes Juan Soto for me, and I don't know whether I want to be married to him forever…

Do you ever check your team the following day and forget why you bid on a player?

I have a Bronze Ichiro today on my Bob's team, and I can't remember which mission I did that for

(edit: Ah, 'Players From Japan (The Batters)', for 2012 Brewer Norichika Aoki )

I've actually decided to slow play the collections a bit. While this hopefully allows the prices to stabilize a bit, I'm also mindful of the "What now?" feeling many have gotten after rushing ahead to finalize their team structure. I don't want to get bored with most missions complete while I wait for the rarer cards (or the points to get the expensive ones). I'm allowing the experience some space to breathe as I wait for good deals.

Yeah agreed, I think they’ll last me the rest of the year

Is it intentional when there are players in game that are eligible for missions that are not included in them?

Examples include Jose Quijada who is not included in the Q names mission and Kyle Zimmer who is not included in the mission for Z names.

So...I'm a little bit slow, but I just noticed that you can sort on "missions completed" in the managers & rankings tab. A nice little way to keep people churning and trying to get to the top of the pile I suppose.

It's called "player engagement".

I think, for me, the collection missions craze was an interesting time in OOTP history. That said, I've decided that I'm not really enjoying the pursuit of the collections all that much. If I have to type in WANG or GLADDEN or LONNIE SMITH one more time...

So instead of complaining about price gouging or a very tight card supply or the rewards--in most cases--not being worth the price of the cards collected, I simply decided to liquidate all my non-useful cards not already locked. I was in the process of finishing several missions, but I didn't want my main team suffering for lack of upgrades. I also figure that one of these days I will pull a 200K PP unicorn of a card from a challenge mode pack (still haven't pulled a single perfect card) and then revisit the collections at that time. Or I'll just wait til next year...

Made 7K PP just in the time it took me to list my cards, so I'd have to say I'm happy with the decision. The LIVE cards aren't selling well, but all of the other card collections are going fast.

Side topic but I feel like LIVE cards really should have been better in this game. I used to play a mobile baseball game, MLB 9 Innings and their live cards are as good as the past season cards so it's fun to get them and use them. Here? They are just horrible value and really doesn't provide too much to the game (outside of collection mission) IMO.
