    I don't know what any of this means.

    I always see this as the preferred way, but isn’t the show down only worth like 4 points for TA? So do you guys just beat it multiple times and cash in

    I want that Mattingly. I'll even play the cpu to get it.

    You can’t buy the card on the market like Torre or Trout let’s say. But you can buy other cards and do the “exchanges” to get points towards the card (I think)

    20 points per showdown (you get 5 four point vouchers)

    How many points do I need? Do I have to do 1 and 2 to get to 3 or can I just go for 3?

    Oh damn, wish I knew that. I always read it as 4 points and wondered if people were really claiming beating Showdown 20 times was faster.

    Play a season of March to October on All Star and you’ll get around 60-80pts for the Yankees Affinity if you win the WS

    I assume yes you’d need to get enough points to reach that level. Someone else can give more detail though.

    Sometimes easiest to just go find the screen and look at it when you’re on the game.

    You’ll need 170 total points, and have to go through the stages in order (so you’ll also get an ~89 Gleyber, a ~93 Clarke Schmidt, and a bunch of other stuff on the way). When I log on tonight I’ll walk through it in a bit more detail.

    For you dblplay1212 buy gold players that exchange for 12-15k for 2-5k stubs. Every 50,000 points exchanged = 10 team affinity. You need about 150 for Mattingly or whatever it unlocks at

    I also just read that they are going to do Moments for Team Affinity now to help people catch up. No idea what that entails but that could be an easy way to get some points too.

    This is what I did to get the Tatis Jr diamond for the Padres affinity. Just found a couple cards that weren’t crazy pricy and bought a bunch and exchanged them in for 10pts then repeated

    Collecting all Yankees is +10. I have 18 of 40. One is Cole and he costs a fortune. Doesnt make sense.

    Im gonna get on over lunch (like 10 minutes) I’ll see if they have it. When I did that for Tatis you could buy like 50 silvers and exchange them for 10pts and repeat.

    That’s the one. I think it’s similar but you can pick and choose guys and exchange.

    That’s what I do now. Any card I have collected already and I get a duplicate is solely used to exchange towards team affinities.

    Buy guys like JD Martinez who is like 1-2K? And he exchanges for 12k. 4 of him and some silvers will get you 10 towards mattingly

    Yep...just do that and repeat it. Just confirm it says “repeatable” still or whatever on that spot you saw under missions.

    The only thing that sucks is you can’t buy more than one card at a time...but still not terrible

    I just did an exchange of guys I already had. It gave me +10 so I'm at 54 now. I now have another rivals exhange open. 50,000 is 10 points. Just do this like 20 times and I get Mattingly?

    Yep, but as you approach 70. If you can get to 69 with the points then do the collection so you get up to 79. Once you advance past a stage, the innings reset, the small +5 resets. So if you’re close to a +2 or +5 knock it out before 70

    and if you’ve started a rivals collection during Stage 1 and then you advance to stage 2 you’ll lose any current players you’ve exchanged.

    Find a dude who’s reasonable priced and exchanges for a lot, and buy a handful. That’s what seemed to work for me with Tatis.

    I’m ready and waiting for some. I have saves for March to October for Twins/Rays/Cardinals/Padres all in the post season. Quick 20-30 points each to finish them up when they release
