World Series Champion Cubs celebrated with new Diamond Dynasty content

Posted November 11th, 2016 at 12:00 pm


The season may be over but support for Diamond Dynasty mode in MLB The Show 16 continues. Today a new Chicago Cubs Champions Pack and missions tied to a trio of new flashback cards were added.

Obtaining the three new flashbacks and completing statistical tasks will unlock Prime Matt Garza. Andrew Cashner (Rookie Flashback) needs to accrue 10 strikeouts, Marlon Byrd (Prime Flashback) must get 5 hits, and Darwin Barney (Prime Flashback) requires 10 fielding assists.

Currently on the marketplace Cashner can be obtained for around 4,300 Stubs, Byrd for 5,000 Stubs, and Barney for 7,300 Stubs. That’s pretty reasonable for working towards the reward of Garza but he’s only rated 87 Overall so it’s not exactly a huge prize.

The new cards can also be found in the limited time Cubs Champions Packs. Those are being sold for 3,000 Stubs and include 4 player cards with an increased chance at pulling them. For cheap as they are on the marketplace however it would be unwise to chase them in packs.
