On July 8, San Diego Studios launched the July Monthly Awards program in MLB The Show 22 and Diamond Dynasty. This program will feature cards that honor the best performers from the month of July, including 99 OVR Lightning Austin Riley, and a special Legend player item. Former Astros infielder and Baseball Hall of Famer Craig Biggio batted over .400 in the month of July back in 1999, and the legendary hitter now has a 98 OVR player item to honor that run in The Show. So, how can you add it, along with everything else? Let’s take a look.

How to complete July Monthly Awards Program guide

The July Monthly Awards Program guide is split up into stages. This is quite similar to the ones that went live in April, May, and June.

In order to make progress in the stages, users must complete a number of Moments, Missions, and Collections. Users must start with the Topps Now Moments, and as of 2022, these have been integrated into the Monthly Awards programs. Also, we should note that until those Topps Now players are acquired, you will not be able to move on to Stages 2 & 3.

Now that the Monthly Awards players have been added to MLB The Show 22, users can complete the additional Moments, Missions, and Collections for all three Stages. These include finishing Moments with the Monthly Awards cards, completing collections, and acquiring PXP Points with the Monthly Awards items.

Here’s a look at the tasks that need to be done, sorted by stage:

Stage 1

  • Complete Topps Now Moments (2 pts. each – 32 Moments)
  • Complete July Topps Now Collection (17 cards needed – 11 pts.)

Players will not be able to move on to Stage 2 until the Topps Now moments have been completed, and all the cards for the July collection have been added and claimed.
