I need to get stuck into some challenges, earn some cards and coins, and catch up with all your nifty squads!

It'll be good since the Kings are featured for this week's Throwback Thursday challenge. You have a chance to earn a short term card for either Tiny Archibald, Mitch Richmond, or Vlade Divac.

PS, I would LOVE to see Archibald's throwback uniform unlockable for The Streets.

Those Garnett Celtic cards can be had for cheap right now.

I see you have a Wiggins hero card. I kept his Xmas card but I might have to do the hero challenge for a better version

The Hero card of Wiggins indeed has better stats compared to his Christmas variant. I snagged that Garnett the instant I saw that I could get it for 10,000 (I saw John Starks who also had 10,000 once, then he went back to being in the 50,000 range). All the legends I have were purchased for around 10,000, with the exception of English who was 16,000. Looking in the AH is definitely the smarter option compared to purchasing packs.

Also, I have some uniforms that I don't like (Spurs Gray Alternate especially), so if I put them up for auction, do I receive the amount of coins that another player purchased for it? If so, do I only have to put it for bidding, or am I able to specify a buy now price?

Both. What I normally do is set the auction to start at just past whatever i would get if I discarded the card. usually like 150-200 coins for bad players or jerseys, coaches, courts. Then I set the buy now at whatever I think I can sucker someone into paying me (but still lower than the other similar cards in the AH, obviously)

the game says they take a percentage like 5% or something of what you sell it for, which doesn't make sense to me other than them wanting to be like 2K and taking coins out of the market so people will have to play for or buy them.

The statement jerseys are a bit more rare so you can probably sell them for a couple grand. I sold the Pelicans red for like 4-5000 buy now. Regular jerseys I usually get a couple hundred for them.

Sold some of my jerseys and was able to get the Cavs Kemp card. That gives me another big man who can rebound, finish, and block shots, now increasing the count to six good defensive bigs (Kemp, Garnett, Nance, Drummond, Porzingis, and Embiid).

Trying to sell some of my other cards, but no luck doing so. It's strange how I put the Grizzilies' home uniform up for auction for 12 hours for 750 and nobody took it, yet I put the Warriors Icon uniform up for 5,000 and it sold in less than an hour.

I usually don't sell the regular home or away jerseys for much but I try to sell the ones for popular teams like the warriors or Cleveland for a little more. Not, 5000 but like 600-700. Sounds like you got lucky there for sure

I got the warriors Oak Town ones over thanksgiving and sold it for 20000

If it's a popular team and people haven't had any luck getting a specific jersey themselves (and are running out of patience), you'll likely have more luck selling, even at a higher price point. Not that I'm advocating gouging, of course, but you'll definitely have better fortune with items for the most popular teams, especially if someone browsing the Auction House is getting impatient.

Dang I knew he would win it but I had to go for redick who's rated 93 in 3s. Hard to find someone in the 90s that's not a legend.

Whoa, Nique is almost a must-have with those stats.

what i found weird was divac as a kings legend had #12 on when he wore #21 for them.

Divac isn't the only one with an incorrect number; Celtics Garnett wears #4 in game instead of #5.

btw, Wilkins has to be my favorite card yet. He's an amazing finisher, quick, able to green threes when open, decent rebounding, and can get an occasional block here and there. Definitely one of the best cards released right now, only thing is that he costs a fortune at the AH (200,000 average!)

Wow, that's ridiculous. I give them a pass for divacs number because already he's worn #12 but Garnett never wore #4 so that's just inexcusable.

I wanted to take my chances on a legend pack to see if I could get nique and got him on the first try! I have almost enough for a second one. What so you think my chances are for getting another one to flip for a profit?

Pretty rare from what I've seen. I saw one person on Twitter pull him twice, while I saw some others pull a Spud Webb on their second try (he's worth about 50,000).

I've seen him and Lenny go for as low as 10-15K so I figured if I miss I could recoup some of the coins. A bit of a gamble I guess

Spud should be worth more than 10k, but because a lot of people didn't get Dominique, they sell all the other Hawks legends for cheap. Attempting to sell my Richardson card so I can get another HWC pack, and hope that I can get another Dominique so I can put him on auction.

If I can pull another Dominique, I plan on saving for next weeks Throwback Thursday, and getting some legend guards, especially John Starks and Gary Payton

I bought Payton for about 40k when they first released him and got a duplicate when I bought a pack trying to get another sonics player. Man, I would've loved to have gotten a Kemp or Allen. I wound up selling the duplicate for about 25k but lately I've seen affordable ones in the 20000s

Got a chance to play with Dominique Wilkins and this guy makes me feel like I'm cheating. Even against the triple double team of the week on all star difficulty, he had no problem scoring. No holes in his game, and he's made some highlight and one dunks. I'm glad I passed on the Xmas LeBron and wound up getting Wilkins instead. It would be hard to find a better all around player in the game

So I didn't have enough to purchase another Legends Pack in time, but the good news is that I didn't go out empty handed.

For not spending any real money for this team, this lineup is insane!
