Diamond Dynasty programs

Most, if not all of these hitters are locked behind some form of Diamond Dynasty Moments or other Program events. While they aren’t currently listed above, the Topps Now 2021 collection has the best rotation of player moments you can collect, adding to your MLB The Show 2021 Diamond Dynasty team.

You’ll have to get good at this game quickly if you want any chance of unlocking some of the premier hitters in MLB The Show 21. While almost all of the Moments and Programs aren’t locked behind time sensitive events (except for Daily events,) there are few special limited time events like the Wander Franco event that might be triggered by real life. The trick is to make sure you log in daily to make sure you aren’t missing out. Additionally, you should make sure to complete your collections through Player Programs, Team Affinity rewards, and Mariano Rivera tickets.
