Immortal Exchanges

Has anyone done all the hat, jersey and player exchanges for any of the Immortals? I'm looking for an estimate on how much they cost, specifically Griffey. I'm trying to decide if it's worth the grind to get him since he's one of my favorite players ever and I've already done the Doby career arc.

Re: Immortal Exchanges

I haven't done any immortal exchanges yet, but you piqued my interest.

However...I started to do the math, and it made my head hurt.

I think it would be at least 27,900 stubs just for the jerseys needed for Griffey (20 diamond jerseys, with the cheapest being the Mariners Alt Road jersey, which was selling at 1395 each last I checked). Perhaps you could do it cheaper with gold or silver jerseys, but it would take a lot more of them to get to the 15K value required.

In other words...it will cost a lot.

I just saw one estimate posted a couple of weeks ago saying the Griffey exchange "isn't that bad" compared to some other Immortals...followed by an estimate of 80,000 to 90,000 stubs for the exchanges. Obviously the market shifts and changes with time, so that may have gone up or down significantly. At least Griffey played for more than one team, so there are more items to choose from to potentially keep the cost down.

Re: Immortal Exchanges

ya it's a money grab.

i am just doing team epics.

I am trying to do the Cubs one and they want something like 3000 points for autographed Cubs baseballs.

The problem is there are only 3 Cubs autograph baseballs. If I exchange all 3 it's like 1000 points. That means I got to keep rebuying all three balls 3 times! That's ridiculous!

They should have just limited it to just those 3 balls to complete that mission.

I don't spend real money on this stuff so I guess I'll never get this team epic. Or maybe in like a year if I keep playing I'll luck out and get them when they give out the post game rewards.

Re: Immortal Exchanges

Iíve done Piazza and Ryan and those are the only ones Iím doing. I canít tell you how much it cost because I did it over time and since I didnít plan on doing the others I sold the stuff I had that I didnít need and each time I did I picked something I did need. I think a lot of people were doing Griffey because a few weeks ago i was selling Seattle and Cincy jerseys for $4000-$6000 and buying 3 things I needed for every one item I sold. I did learn that selling off the other stuff is hurting me now because you need them for other stuff.

You will most likely end up paying out more stubs for the souvenirs and player exchange than a similarly rated Gold pitcher on the market

Re: Immortal Exchanges

I was finally able to crunch some numbers on the Griffey Immortal exchanges. It looks like with a little luck and patience, you can finish the hat, jersey and player exchanges for a total of around 70,000 stubs. Ouch.

Yeah, I started doing the hats for Griffey recently after a lucky pack pull and stopped because it was draining my stubs (You need 167 bronze hats!). I don't play nearly enough to have any hope of completing any of the immortals without putting money into the game, something I refuse to do.

All the exchanges are such a drag this year.
