What are Sorare MLB cards and how do they work
Sorare MLB cards are the modern version of classic baseball cards.
In the game, a Sorare MLB Card is a digital collectible (NFT) that represents a baseball player and is tied to an MLB season. With the help of blockchain technology, basketball fans can collect their favorite players with the benefit of limited availability (there is a limited number of Sorare NBA Cards).
Sorare MLB cards are uniquely valuable and cannot be replaced. In addition, Sorare cards can be freely traded. The cards in Sorare MLB can't be taken away from their owner. The owner has complete control.
You don't need to have any knowledge about crypto to use Sorare. You can top up your Sorare account using a credit card or bank transfer, or you can deposit Ethereum directly from Metamask.
On Sorare MLB, there are five different types of cards, each with a different scarcity value. These values determine which tournaments you can participate in.

Make your lineup

You are only allowed to use one card per Game Week, and you are not allowed to use the same player in the same lineup twice, even if you have two of their cards. You will also need to make sure that your lineup has at least two MLB teams represented in order for it to be valid.
Hitting or Pitching
In the MLB, there are players who can both pitch and hit. For such players, you will need to decide as to which position you want them to score points in. Players can only get pitching or hitting stats in a given Game Week.

How to buy cards on Sorare MLB
You can buy cards on the Sorare MLB Market in two places: New Card Auctions and Manager Sales.
New Card Auctions
New Card Auctions allow you to buy cards that just came out directly from Sorare MLB, meaning you'll be the first person ever to have that specific card and serial number. Each auction has a deadline, after which the card will be sold to the highest bidder. If you are the highest bidder when the auction expires, you will win the card, and it will be added to your collection. This is the only way to acquire newly minted cards.
To participate in auctions for newly minted cards, go to the Market section and select New Card Auctions.
There is a time limit at the bottom of the page which indicates when the bidding ends. You can search for specific players using the filters on the left to see when their next bids are ending. You must click on the bid button to place your bid.
In order to bid, you must have funds in your Sorare account. The bid will increase by one minute if someone outbids you at the last second, so that you have time to increase your bid if necessary.
Manager Sales provides Sorare MLB managers with a direct peer-to-peer secondary marketplace, allowing them to list cards from their collection. The only way to add a card to your collection instantly, without waiting for an auction to conclude, is to buy it directly from another player.
Be cautious, as there will be many managers who will put very high prices on certain players. If you want to buy a specific player, the best thing to do is to go to the player section on the left and look for the player you want. Thereafter, look for the card with the lowest selling price.
How to sell cards on Sorare MLB
To sell your card, click on Sell my card. Next, you need to determine the selling price for your card. If the card is not sold within two days, the sale will be cancelled. You can put that card back on sale for free. The sale can be cancelled before it ends.
It is always best to get a market estimation before you try to sell a card. To start, search for the card you want to sell on the transfer market. Research the current market value of the card you wish to sell. How many cards are for sale? What is the lowest price available for the card? With this information, you should be able to determine a reasonable selling price. The fewer cards are available for sale, the higher the chance that the card's value will increase.
Keep the serial number of your player's card in mind. Series 1 and the player's jersey number series have a higher value than the rest of the cards in the series.

If you want to win, study the stats
Sorare MLB is a game of statistics. It is therefore essential that you spend time looking at player and team statistics. These are some of the most important statistics you need to be checking when playing Sorare MLB.
Batting Average: This is the percentage of times a hitter gets a base hit. This number is expressed in a form such as .250 or .300. The higher a player's batting average, the better. You want players on your Sorare team that get as many base hits as possible. In Major League Baseball, a batting average of .300 is considered good, and when a player approaches .333, they are considered to be excellent. When a player starts to approach .400, it is almost unheard of.
Home Runs: Everyone loves the home run ball. It is a game changer, providing great excitement. Over the years, the frequency of home runs in the MLB has increased. Between 40 and 60 homes can be considered an exceptional season, with an average number taking place between 15-20.
Earned Run Average (ERA): The earned run average, or ERA, is a statistic used in baseball to evaluate pitchers. It shows how many runs a pitcher would give up over a 9-inning game. The number would be displayed as 3.36 or 3.50. The best pitchers in the MLB have ERA’s under 3.00. The average pitcher will have an ERA between 3.5 and 5.5, and a poor pitcher will have an ERA over 5.5.
On Base Percentage (OBP): On Base Percentage represents the percentage of time a player reaches base. This is the number of hits, hit by pitches, or walks divided by the total number of at-bats (hits, walks, outs, sacrifices, hit by pitch). The number is frequently represented in a format such as .478. The higher the OBP, the better the advantage for the team. You should be looking for players who are both able to get on base and also hit for some power.
Total Bases: This is a good stat because it shows how many bases a hitter gets per season because of their hits. For example, a single would count as 1, a double =’s 2, triple =’s 3, home run =’s 4. These numbers are then added up to obtain the total number of bases over a season. The higher the total, the better.
