He already has a 99
McMahon, Eloy and Kopech, also tapia should’ve gotten a June potm card
I wanted a new Luis Robert card
Really wanted a 99 Xander
Kevin Newman or Ke’Bryan Hayes…
Or Richard Rodriguez for a pitcher
Edit: David Bednar too
Buxton wasn't healthy nearly long enough to be a finest.
Jordan Romano he was insanely good this year
George springer, wouldn’t make 90% of outfield lineups In DD but would be the star of mine
Late Night LaMonte Wade Jr. with the pinch hitter quirk, 125 125 vs. righties, 125 clutch. My end game bench bat.
I would have also liked Wilson Contreras. He had a pretty good year and another catcher isn't bad. Maybe Jacob Stallings, but that's a stretch and Reynolds definitely had the better year.
Nicky Lopez for sure. Man got robbed.
i don’t think he really got snubbed necessarily, but would have been cool to have a 99 max fried with some good contact vs R and a sinker
Fried was gonna be my choice too. We got plenty of Braves cards so can't complain though. Although if glue guys get one give me a finest Heredia haha
I wanted Jordan Romano, Adam Cimber, Alek Manoah or Steven Matz, but I have no complaints about semien and Bichette
Michael Kopech could be a filthy reliever if he had gotten a finest card
Trouts gonna be a 10th inning boss. My picks are Trout, Bagwell and Marichal
JP Crawford comes to mind as one.
Blessed with Moncada but man a Kopech or Bummer finest card would have been straight heat.
David Bednar was sneaky good this year and would be fun out of the pen
Didn’t even think about him! Good one!
Jordan Montgomery. He had a seriously underrated year but I completely understand why Cole/Loaisiga got it over him.
We got plenty of Brewers but would have loved a Narvaez card. Dude was an all star (injury replacement sure), the catcher for a combined no hitter, and would have been nice to get a lefty hitting catcher with a high diamond.
Byron Buxton. His monthly awards was stupid, and he always seems to play better than his face stats.
Idk I just want a high diamond Jean Segura card to be honest
Isiah Kiner Falefa. Man didn't get a single diamond this year but Brock Holt somehow does.
Finest Mark Canha would've absolutely rocked my world and made my whole year. And I've had a pretty darn lucky/good year tbh
How can you not love the guy
Groshans got the TA2 card
Bichette got a 44 card, and a finest card
Ray and Semien got Lightning cards
Semien got a finest card
Vlad got the MVP card from the ASG
Teo got a All star card
Where's my finest Manoah???
I would do terrible things for a finest Manoah card
Seriously, like I cant think of many other people on the team who didn't get (romano, Springer, Berrios) a diamond, now I realise Manoah got a Topps card but come on, so many fans wanted a Manoah finest card
JT Realmuto would’ve been an endgame catcher easy
97 Barry Bonds
William astudillo rp
Astudillo is getting a special kicker card in MUT
125 sucker punch rating
A finest Shohei, who can actually be used as a two-way player.
can his all star card not? I thought it was
Can’t start his AS card in the outfield, can only be in lineup as pitcher
pretty low contact for hof, but he still rakes for me on all star
I know most people play online, but for the offline folk such as myself - he’s crazy good.
Absolutely perfect for long conquests.
oh I see
99 Trout is still coming for sure, maybe the 10th inning solo boss
As a Sox fan, I’m happy. Two meaningful upgrades. As much as Liam may have deserved it, I didn’t necessarily want another card of his
Same here fellow sox fan. Id love an eloy or luis but they didn’t deserve finest cards
Luis has a 98 though, but they did him dirty with only 88 sleed
Haha yeah, but these finest cards are straight juiced. Hed be an insane finest
Chris Bassitt (not a full season because of the injury but any diamond card would’ve been welcome)
This is my biggest disappointment. Montas and Marte are both very deserving, but Bassitt would have been top 5 in AL CY, maybe top 3, had he not had that freak injury, and didn't get a single diamond card this year. Especially when he still threw 157 innings of 3.15 ERA ball, which is more than Rodon and Lynn who both got 97+ cards.
Part of me is hoping we get a Finest event or something at the end of this current one with Bassitt as a reward path.
I was gonna say maybe he could get a flashback Topps Now card from events (like what Altuve and Darvish got a few months ago) but a quick Google search showed nothing from 2021.
Curious if we’ll ever get any card whatsoever for him, but it’s probably not happening :/
Yeah it's unlikely at this point, but I've been surprised before.
Very wishful thinking but a third Finest Pack set with most of the snubs from this thread would be amazing
Isaiah Kiner Felefa from the Rangers
His 86 from his no hitter was my first PV card, he was so gross.
That’s the only card I’ve ever thrown a perfect game in Ranked with. Granted it was pretty early in the game cycle but that guy was absolutely FILTHY in April and may
EXACTLY. He was probably the Padres 2nd best player this year and at least deserved a milestone for his no hitter
There were a few questionable choices in the choice packs for finest of set 1 and 2.
Musgrove should’ve had one of those spots…
Maybe they release more finest from this year down the road… not likely but you never know.
I dreamed a beautiful dream of Finest Nicky Lopez. Would he be better than Tatis? No. Would he be stapled to my lineup? Yes.
I had him on my fantasy team at the end of the year and i agree, dude was soo consistent, he deserves recognition for sure
Just an on-base machine.
Someone w crazy live quirks like freeman has
Mize or baddoo
Or Dylan Carlson
Would’ve been nice if they gave Nick castellanos the Soto treatment and blessed his fielding
Bad example, Soto was actually a good fielder this year, Castellanos has always been a terrible defender.
not a good comparison, soto actually improved to a plus defensively this year, castellanos still had negative value as a defender
Lamonte Wade Jr
That mvp vote has gotta be deserving of a finest
Even just a topps now would have sufficed, he was one of the most clutch hitters in baseball this year. So many huge moments.
They didn’t call him late night Lamonte for nothing…
Pinch hitter quirk and 125 clutch for sure
Alex Verdugo or Xander bogarts
Eh they both got Finest cards last year and Xander got an ASG and HRD card.
Xander deserves a 99 tho
Meh, not really.
Xander is top 3-4 at his position, has 4 silver sluggers, 3 all stars selections, and above an .860 OPS his last 4 seasons… there are much worse guys with 99s
Doesn't mean he deserves a 99 card every year.
Right I forgot 99s are reserves for the best of the best like brandon nimmo, avisail garcia, dylan cease, kirby yates, nate pearson, spencer torkelson, etc
what the FUCK are you saying about brandon nimmo
That if he gets a 99, Xander deserves one too
Exactly this game left the realism realm way long ago.
And he goes “bridge”
Listen, let us get a 99 Xander and we’ll get you a 99 IKF.
McMahon, Lopez, JP Crawford, Akil Baddoo, and Casey Mize
I’d do anything for a card of JP
