    in this video i go through more details but goat collection this year is 2900 cards compared to last year at 2500.
    do all domination first and scheduled challenges for a quick boost to MT and card before using the auction to complete regular season collection and save tokens for bigger cards released later in the year. any questions comment down below or watch the video and comment there

    thanks to agent0fslytheryn evolution cards only count for one card even after evolving

    Xenu7Anyone willing to sell me their heat check collection? I’m very close to this achievement but the heat check cards are literally impossible to find at this point. I would happily send some Microsoft points or USD to anyone willing to help me out. I want this achievement BAD. GT Xenu7

    shadowninja25I'd help you out, but I got them all locked so I could get the set completion rewards, so I'm unable to sell them. Have you tried creating a boosting session for this achievement or searched to see if there's already one that exists?

    Cos7uHI just want to comment that I've played an insane amount if time for this game, and if you didnt complete the "Heat Check" collection (which is a complete useless group of cards considering the cancelled/postponed season) you cannot complete this. the first three groups are all vital, then everything else is really debatable considering the market price.

    Your only resort is to spam 1 on 1 Unlimited matches, win one. and then throw the next games until you reset the board. you'll get a heat check pack/player every time.

    hope this helps. dont be buying heat check off the auction house either, theres someone with mass cards controlling the market right now.

    You're in for a TON of grinding no matter what. Even if you spend hundreds of dollars on packs (absolutely not recommended, especially at this point) you're still going to have to get so many cards that you'll likely be forced to play hundreds of hours just to get close to this achievement.

    The 100% guaranteed best way to get MT to buy cards is to play Triple Threat online. Each game is only about 5 minutes long and if you manage to win all 11 games on the board you'll make anywhere between 6-10K MT easy.

    The best way to win TTO games is to grab three of the free Spotlight players (J Lin, Kareem, Dwight Howard, Iggy, Kidd, etc.) and grind them to their max levels in any way you can. Use them in every game possible. The 2K matchmaking system has a glitch that reads their card levels as their base forms, so even if you have a Pink Diamond Lin/Kareem, they're still being counted as Sapphires. This will allow you to get matched up with people with much worse cards that you should have no problem beating.

    Sniping cards at an auction is definitely doable but considering you'll probably be spending so much of your MT on cards in the auction house, you won't have a lot saved up to snipe 100K MT galaxy opals to resell on the market, and even then there's no guarantee of a return on investment because of the 10% auction house tax. Triple Threat online is slow but steady MT that also gives you tons of packs that will fill out your collection as well as give you free duplicates to sell for MT.

    GooseBoxLiveThey're specifically the players you get by completing the first spotlight challenge for each player. So completing the first Jeremy Lin Spotlight Challenge will get you the Evo Jeremy Lin card which can get up to a pink diamond, etc.

    BlackDragon9871I don't know what you mean by locker code. Is it too late to take advantage of those? Is it even possible to get the achievement at this point? I'm currently at 1200 cards...

    GooseBoxLiveLocker codes are/were codes released by 2K on Twitter that you could enter in MyTeam that gave you things like free players/packs/consumables. It was a good way to get lots of free stuff without having to buy it with MT/VC.

    I'm not going to lie it's not impossible but at this point now that 2K21 is already out your chances of getting this are going to be much more difficult. I don't think they're releasing any more locker codes for 2K20 and less people are going to be selling cards on the auction house so it might be an even more difficult grind than it was when the game was still more active.
