The Monthly Awards Program for MLB The Show is available now. Lightning Jim Thome, rewards, and more ...

The MLB The Show 22 August Monthly Awards program has arrived, and that means a new month of Topps Now moments, cards, and other rewards. For this month, The Show players will have an opportunity to receive a slew of Player of the Month awards, as well as two Lightning cards, one of which will most likely be a 99 OVR card of one of the best performers for August, while the other will be a throwback Legend Lightning of Baseball Hall of Famer Jim Thome.

How to Complete the August Monthly Awards Program Guide

The Monthly Award Program guide for August is broken up into phases. This is quite similar to the ones that were released in April, May, June, and July.

Users must complete a number of Moments, Missions, and Collections in order to progress in the stages. These must begin with the Topps Now moments, which have been integrated into the Monthly Awards programs since 2022.

Users may complete the additional Moments, Missions, and Collections for all three Stages now that the Monthly Awards players have been included to MLB The Show 22. These include finishing Moments with the Monthly Awards cards, completing collections, and earning PXP points from the Monthly Awards items.

Here's a breakdown of what needs to be done, organized by stage:

  • Complete Topps Now Moments(2 pts. each Traditionally, anywhere from 6-8 Moments are added per week)
  • Complete July Topps Now Collection(14 cards needed 13 pts.)

Players will not be able to progress on to Stage 2 until the Topps Now moments have been completed, and all of the cards from the August collection have been added and claimed.
