New Packs

Packs-in-a-Pack arrive in the Show Shop for the first time in MLB The Show 18!

This pack is packed with more packs. When you open one of the new packs, you will find previously released Standard Packs from Sets 1 through 11. The interesting twist is a chance to find bundles (10, 20 or 50-packs) from Sets 1-11 inside a single pack. Look for exclusive players and equipment from those sets as you open them.

The 20-pack bundle guarantees 1 topper pack containing a previously-released seasonal equipment item such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Camo or All-Star equipment, plus 3 Silver or better player items.

The 50-pack bundle contains 3 topper packs guaranteeing a total of 3 seasonal equipment items, plus 8 Silver or better player items.

Free Packs

Get ready for 10 days of free packs August 11-20!

Look for a Mission every day between Saturday, August 11, to Monday, August 20, in the August Timed Program to redeem one of the new Packs in a Pack.

These redeemable Missions are only available for 24 hours to celebrate our fans and National Baseball Card Day on August 11th. Enjoy!
