The New York Yankees’ iconic shortstop Derek Jeter will be the face of MLB The Show 23’s Collector’s Edition, flanking Jazz Chisholm on the cover of this year’s game. The superstar – who won five World Series – was elected into the baseball Hall of Fame in 2020, and his career has been captured by artist Sanford Greene for the box art.
There are a bunch of versions available this year, starting with the most expensive Captain Edition, which you’ll be able to pre-order from PS Direct or physical retailers. Priced at $99.99, the bundle comes with a striking New Era MLB The Show 9FIFTY Limited Edition Cap, steel book case, the game on both PS5 and PS4, and four days early access.
You’ll also get some in-game incentives, like double daily login rewards for the entire lifecycle of the game, a ton of Diamond Dynasty packs, and some Jeter themed customisation options. If you don’t want the physical stuff, then you can plump up for the Digital Deluxe Edition, which also costs $99.99 but has even better Diamond Dynasty incentives, including 30k Stubs.
Finally, a Technical Test will open on 15th February across all supported platforms, including PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. “We want to deliver the best version possible of MLB The Show 23 and to do that we need everyone’s help to stress test the servers, online matchmaking, cross-platform play, online co-op, and more in addition to gathering feedback on gameplay,” brand strategist Ramone Russell said.
We’ll be checking that out, for sure!
One of all-time favorites, cool to see him on the cover of a MLB game again. Wonder how much of it was done to settle the angst that some Yankee fans displayed when it was revealed who the cover star is for the regular edition instead of Judge? I tried to explain to fellow Yankees fans on Twitter that it probably had more to do with Judge being on the cover in 2018 than any kind of 'snub.' That went over about as well as I expected.
Ok him I've heard of. He's the guy who does those car commercials, right?
“YOU SHOT DEREK JETER?!?!?! HE’S A BI RACIAL ANGEL!!!”
“YOU SHOULD HAVE SHOT A-ROD!”
@rjejr I have a hard time remembering the Dodgers aren't in Brooklyn anymore and didn't even know the "Florida Marlins" weren't a name anymore. But even I know who Jeter is.
What's Brooklyn's team these days, anyway? The Brooklyn Vegans? Brooklyn Organics? They don't actually play in the MLB because it's too mainstream, right?
That is a pretty bad picture, could be"generic" yankee
So they couldn’t do Big Papi last year when he was inducted but they can randomly do Derek Jeter. Probably gonna skip this edition tbh
