Is there anything better than summer baseball? MLB The Show 22’s new featured program puts the spotlight on the All-Stars Of The Franchise–an all-in-one revision of 2021’s Team Affinity Season 3 that highlights modern legends (Albert Pujols, Miguel Cabrera), new blood (Shane McClanahan), absolute wildcards (David Bednar, Tony Gonsolin), and the rest of this year’s All-Star selections.
The 2022 All-Star Program features 30 new bosses (one from each team), a mess of retro uniforms and themed choice packs (Always Intense, Takashi Okazaki), and another long list of flashbacks–such as 2018 2nd Half Blake Snell, 2011 Silver Slugger Justin Upton, 2019 All-Star Nolan Arenado, and 2019 Monthly Awards Yoan Moncada. There’s also a David Ortiz Program, a new Moonshot Week Event, store packs with 99 Home Run Derby Juan Soto and 99 All-Star Game MVP Giancarlo Stanton, an All-Star Other Program featuring 2022 All-Star Miguel Cabrera and Topps Now Jasson Dominguez, and two conquest maps with gear designed by artists Sket One and King Saladeen.
The cherry on top is a 2022 All-Star Jackie Robinson to earn through collections, so here’s a primer on the best All-Star Game and Home Run Derby cards to add to your team before the 99s arrive.
