The Chase is On – TWO Days of Sig Hunting Commences

For the rookie players out there, these next TWO days are a pretty big deal for the big collectors out there, as on August 6th, the sig chase reward is released. Unlike last time, there are TWO rewards for collecting both series one and series two together and then just series two. All together there have been 20 signature series, and with some series 2 as low as 200, these rewards may be quite limited.

Im going to piece together what I can of the checklist, so I apologize if this is a bit off:

Series 1

  • Mike Trout (100)
  • Andrew McCutchen (500)
  • Derek Jeter (100)
  • Justin Verlander (250)
  • Jose Abreu (300)
  • Ryan Braun (350)
  • RA Dickey (400)
  • Nick Swisher (750)
  • Wil Myers (750)
  • Prince Fielder (200)

Series 2

  • Masahiro Tanaka (500)
  • Sonny Gray (600)
  • Giancarlo Stanton (200)
  • Clayton Kershaw (250)
  • Johnny Cueto (500)
  • Yordano Ventura (800)
  • Cole Hamels (750)
  • Jose Bautista (350)
  • Troy Tulowitzki (350)
  • Buster Posey (400)

For collecting all 20, the article said there will be a Miguel Cabrera RC Sig that will be offered as a reward, and I am going to guess there may be 20 of those, if that. The legend sig for collecting series two will be Wade Boggs, and I would guess there may be 75 of those.

The first legend sig, Yogi Berra, is one of the most valuable sigs in the game, which is odd to me, but it is what it is. I have heard that as a matter of preference, Yogi can be traded for Mike Trout or Jeter, but I have heard it go either way.

If you have any of the sigs, Im going to guess that there will be a huge market for them leading up to Wednesday, so I would definitely see if you can get something for yours. This will be a season long chase, and it will come around again. When the final sig is released and they do a full checklist reward, there may end up being less than 10 people who are able to piece them all together.

The main thing is that with a growing market for selling cards outside of the app, it is getting harder and harder for people to trade and acquire these cards without vastly overpaying. That is pretty much the reason why the chase reward cards may be the most valuable there are. Only VERY big collectors can have them.

Sigs are a status symbol for a reason. They show that you have clout, collection and determination to trade for them, as well as the funds to get them if need be. One could say that this is driven solely by the public, as its clear even the available sigs can trade for low circulation inserts.

Are you sig crazy right now? It might be time to get going.
