Additionally, new content is available in Diamond Dynasty. New missions are live now in the All-Star Summer program, rewarding you for picking the Home Run Derby winner, All-Star Game winner and which part of the field the most homers will be hit in the derby (left, center, or right). Guess correctly on these missions, and you’ll receive stubs and player packs.

Stubs are half-price in the marketplace. The sale ends July 24. Per SDS, here are the current prices:

1,000 Stubs | $0.49 USD
5,000 Stubs | $2.49 USD
11,000 Stubs | $4.99 USD
24,000 Stubs | $9.99 USD
67,500 Stubs | $24.99 USD
150,000 Stubs | $49.99 USD

Lastly, new packs are in the market as well. “Ballin’ is a Habit” packs are back, and they are priced reasonably at 12,000 stubs per pack. Each pack guarantees one gold (or better) player, one gold souvenir, and four other players.

Standard packs are now updated with Set 10 cards. All-Star flashback Jonathan Broxton is the highlight of Set 10. Below are his ratings.
