Top 5 card/player combinations you'd like to see in the future!

Since we know that there will be a much higher list of cards and players in OOTP '20, it got me thinking of what five versions of players or cards you'd like to see in the future! Here's my list.


5. Historical All-Star : Jeff Burroughs (TEX - 1974)
current version(s) - none



While statistically not his best season of his career, Burroughs won the '74 AL MVP after leading ht e league with 118 RBI's and posting what would tie for his career high in average at .301.



4. Historical All-Star : Dean Palmer (KC - 1998)
current version(s) - none



His lone All-Star appearance came a year removed from a trade to Kansas City for Tom Goodwin. He posted his highest RBI total of his career at 119, his second highest career average at .278, and won the third base Silver Slugger award.


3. Historical All-Star - Kenny Rogers (TEX - 1995 or 2005 or DET - 2006)
current version(s) - none



"The Gambler" threw a perfect game in the strike season of '95, thanks in part to an incredible play by Rusty Greer, and posted the second lowest ERA of his career as a starting pitcher. Then, a decade later and in his 40's, he made back-to-back All-Star appearances and finished top 5 in the Cy Young voting in 2006.


2. Historical All-Star (or Record Breaker) - Juan Gonzalez (TEX - 1998)
current version(s) - Historical All-Star (TEX - 1993)


Seriously, how they went with his '93 campaign over his '98 season is just wrong on so many levels. "Juan Gone" won the AL MVP in '98 after posting a team record 157 RBI's to go with 45 homers, 50 doubles, and a .318 average. In fact, by the All-Star break, he was actually setting a pace to break Hank Greenberg's single season RBI mark. Going into the Midsummer Classic, he was already at 101 (which had never been done). While it may be true that his '93 season was his highest ever WAR, and produced his career high in homers, it was by leagues nothing compared to his '98 season.


1. Record Breaker - Nolan Ryan (CAL - 1973)
current version(s) : Record Breaker (HOU - 1987) and All-Time Legend (HOU - 1987)


HELLO! He struck out 383 batters! It was his highest season in terms of WAR, and it saw his second highest win total for a season at 21! HOW IS THIS NOT A VERSION OF THE EXPRESS!?!?!?!?!?!?! Like, we went with his no-hitters mark in Houston? TWICE?!?!?! What is this I don't even...


So, that's my list. How about you guys?

I'd like to recommend new card types and additions to current sets:

1. Franchise Greats (player that was a legend over a long tenure for a team) Garret Anderson - Angels

-Current Versions: Historical All-Star 2002 (74)

-Holds an insane amount of franchise records for the Angels and was instrumental in winning their only WS.

-Card could function like a PEAK card, would want it to be 90-91 rated.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Triple Crown Season (self explanatory) Miguel Cabrera 2012

-Current Versions: MLB Live (76), All-Star 2012 (85)

-Increased Contact and HR Power stats

-Would want it to be an overall rating 92-95

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Top WAR Season, Old Hoss Radbourn 1884

-Current Versions: None?

-60-12 with a 1.38ERA and 441K's in 678 innings that year. 19.1 WAR

-Would want it to be 97-100 rated.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Historical All-Star Vladimir Guerrero (2002)

-Current Versions: could not find any on auction house but believe he has an 82 rated card.

-.336 with 39HR and 111RBI and 40SB.

-Could see it being a low diamond rated like 90-92

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. Historical All-Star Buster Posey 2012

-Current Versions: MLB Live (83)

-.336 with 24HR and 103RBI. Could also be a Rookie Sensation from 2010 instead.

-Would want it to be rated 86-89

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bonus: Rookie Sensation Shohei Ohtani (im biased)

Thanks for the notice! They have to be really scarce then, I couldn't find any of them on the AH or on a team in any of my 3 team's leagues

Any thoughts on my ideas for the two new card types I suggested?

I'm sure I've seen a 2002 Vlad card in the AH, which I think is an 82 rated card.

Here is a spot for Perfect Team card requests, if it is still active.

Gotcha. Couldn't remember what it was and nobody in my leagues had him, nor could I find it on the AH. I wouldn't mind seeing a second Vlad card.

One category that might be interesting would be Playoff Heroes. Reggie Jackson, Jack Morris come to mind, though I think they might have included this category in "unsung heroes."

I have seen the Posey 2012 card, it's pretty expensive and not much better than his 2018 live card. Not worth it IMO.

On that note, I would love some more cards from the Giants recent "dynasty".

Matt Cain 2010-12
Angel Pagan 2012
Barry Zito 2012
Marco Scutaro 2014
Madison Bumgarner 2014
Hunter Pence 2014

Any Brandon Crawford that doesn't suck.

And my personal favorite: Andres Torres 2010

The Lincecum, Sandoval and Brian Wilson cards from that era are awesome! More of that please.

There's a 2002 and a 2005, so there already are 2 Vlads But I agree there should be more!

And yeah, for anyone else, please do use the suggestion form. That's the best way to get your picks in the game, either for this year or the future!

(submitted through the web-page already, but fun to toss 'em out here too)

1. RHP - Ed Walsh - 1908: last pitcher to win 40 games in a single season, in 484 IP only walked 56. Lowest career ERA and FIP in the modern era.

2. LHP - Rube Waddell - 1904: 349 strikeouts this season was a single season record that stood for over 60 years (until Koufax in 1965).

3. C - John Tortes "Chief" Meyers - 1912: cause the game needs more old time catchers, and Meyers was a solid backstop with an equally solid bat (hit .358 in 1912)

and a couple who never got a chance to play in the majors in the U.S:

4. C - Josh Gibson - negro leagues: who hasn't heard the legendary/myth-like stories of his exploits on the field.... and he's another old timey catcher, so win-win.

5. P/IF/OF - Martin Dihigo - negro/mexican/cuban leagues - arguably the greatest all around player. 1938 Mexican league, went 18-2 with 0.92 era, 167 IP, 104 H, 32 BB, 184 K; also won the batting title that same year with a slashline of .387/482/.599

I began watching baseball when I lived in Irving as a kid. The first game I ever watched on TV was Nolan Ryan when I was 9 years old. I fell in love with the team ever since, and Ryan's my favorite player of all-time. I have an autographed jersey on my wall and everything! =D

This needs to be set up:

Collect 25 MLB Live Series of a team, get a high gold/low diamond player of that team, historical player/season.

Example:
Collect 25 live series Philadelphia Phillies.
Recieve:
2010 Philadelphia Phillies SP Roy Halladay - Had a perfect game and post season no hitter in the same year.

or

2006 Ryan Howard - .313 BA, 58 HR, 149 RBI - MVP


For example - I don't know if those cards are in the game.

Man, I wish I was helping out with the future card ideas, I have so many ways to get ppl in my head that wouldnt cost the casual gamer money.

Vlad at 82 is a pretty good DH at diamond level..but not constant season to season...some season he cant barely hit for .220 but season after is back at .250-280 range with 20-25 hr.

I have submitted 14 already but I would like to see more Negro League players.
Stats are iffy but you could piece together ratings from what is avaliable on BB Ref and 1st hand accounts.
We have some in the game who were late in the leagues last few years and got integrated into white organized baseball. But there are dozens of great players who because of skin color never got the chance and had to play in many different leagues for teams that were on shaky financial ground.

Oscar Charleston (instant perfect '100' card)
Mule Suttles
Josh Gibson
Pop Lloyd
Turkey Stearnes
Buck Leonard
Cool Papa Bell
Cristóbal Torriente


And easily another 20 or 30 could be added

I was 10 but he was still a Met then. Loved watching him with the Angels.

I still don't understand why the 2003 All Star Halladay is only a Gold card.
