September is the last full month of the MLB season, and that means the last Monthly Awards program in MLB The Show 22. Diamond Dynasty players will have the chance to get two more 99 OVR Lightning cards, one of which is a Legend Lightning card of former Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano. The other features a key piece of the 2022 playoff-bound Blue Jays: shortstop Bo Bichette. So, how can you get it, as well as the other cards in this program? Let’s take a look.

How to complete September Monthly Awards Program guide

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

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 in total (64 pts. in total))
  • Complete September 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 September collection have been added and claimed.
