After last week’s massive All-Star Game content drops, it may seem like this week’s additions are a little dry. However, there is a good bit of new content being added to MLB The Show 22 this week, including a new Flashback collection, a major roster update, Topps Now moments, and a new event.
MLB The Show 22 New BIG Collection
Several weeks after the first BIG collection was released, most players already have George Brett or are on the verge of earning him. There will be no rest for collectors in MLB The Show 22, as the newest BIG collection just arrived in the game.
The reward for this new collection is 2012 Retro Finest Andrew McCutchin. This new 99 OVR card has incredible contact and power, along with impressive fielding and baserunning ratings. To earn this card, players will need to earn 18 different vouchers from Legend and Flashback collections in the game.
Overhaul Roster Update
This week, the Live Series cards in Diamond Dynasty got the annual “Overhaul” update. This is an update that happens near the middle of the MLB season that focuses on fielding and baserunning updates for position players and velocity and break for pitchers. More than 270 pitchers were updated today, with nine earning the Outlier Quirk on one of their pitches. The updated fielding ratings have helped All-Stars Alejandro Kirk and Julio Rodriguez become the two newest diamond players in the game.
MLB The Show Minnie Minoso Program
Chicago White Sox legend Minnie Minoso was finally inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame this past weekend. To celebrate this occasion, the Minnie Minoso Other Program has been added to MLB The Show 22. This program is very similar to the David Ortiz program that was added last week. Players will complete moments from Minoso’s legendary career, along with missions involving White Sox players across Diamond Dynasty. Completing this program will earn players 99 OVR Signature Minnie Minoso.
The first set of Topps Now cards from after the All-Star Game have been added to the July Monthly Awards Program. The three new 92 OVR cards feature:
- Cubs CF Nelson Velazquez
- Marlins CF JJ Bleday
- Astros 1B JJ Matijevic
There is a new event in MLB The Show 22 featuring the All-Star cards that have been added. Players will use All-Star series and Home Run Derby Series players alongside Live Series and other program flashbacks and legends in 3-inning games on All-Star difficulty. Win 10 games in the event and you will earn 97 OVR Finest Bill Mazeroski, while 15 wins will earn you 97 Finest Dontrelle Willis.
