Arguably the greatest pitcher of the 2010s, the Los Angeles Dodgers superstar, Clayton Kershaw is the next big collection within MLB The Show 21, and it’s going to take a lot to acquire his Signature series card. 

Collections are one of the biggest aspects of MLB The Show 21‘s Diamond Dynasty. It allows players to save cards they’ve been collecting over the course of the year and put them towards some of the best players in the game.

Up until this point we’ve had two major ones, the Live Series one featuring 99 OVR Chipper Jones and the first Legends and Flashbacks collection which offered 99 OVR Mookie Betts.

Now, the third collection series is here and players will be able to earn 99 OVR Clayton Kershaw, and we’re going to run over how you’ll be able to obtain this card!

What are Collections in MLB The Show?

For those who are new to Diamond Dynasty, collections are one of the largest aspects of MLB The Show each year. They are accumulations of certain cards players have obtained throughout the year, and they are separated into sets such as Future Stars or Milestone cards.

They’re rather difficult to complete, and it’s a massive grind if you’re taking the no money spent route for these collections. But, it’s possible to complete these if you’re dedicated, and the cards you receive from them are incredible, to say the least
