There are many different ways to get stubs in MLB The Show 21, but a few methods are going to be your best bet right out of the gate.
How to get stubs in MLB The Show 21
You will naturally earn stubs by playing MLB The Show 21, as they are rewards in several game modes and given as you earn XP and level up.
You can also choose to purchase stubs in the marketplace, but this will cost you real-world money and take note that stubs purchased this way are locked to the console you buy them on and won't transfer cross-platform.
While your options are vast to earn stubs, there are a few tried and true ways of going about it that'll net you stubs cheap without too much time investment.
Complete Programs for stubs
Programs are one of your absolute best bets, as all programs have rewards along the way that often include large amounts of stubs.
This can be the Team Affinity Program, 1st Inning Program, Player Programs, or others which will also earn you items and packs along the way.
Each has their own individual rewards and challenges, but working your way through these will net you stubs along with several other rewards.
Don't miss out on Daily Missions and Moments
If you can find time to hop onto MLB The Show 21 Diamond Dynasty each day, that will be a big help as the game will constantly dole out new Daily Missions and Daily Moments.
Moments can be a very quick thing to knock out at times, as they've got specific goals and can constantly be restarted if they aren't going as intended.
Missions tend to be a bit more broad, but if you check the details it'll explain which modes to play in order to reap the rewards of completing that Mission.
Conquest has hidden rewards in Diamond Dynasty
Conquest is already one of the best ways to get XP fast in MLB The Show 21, but it'll also be a major boon for stubs and packs in general.
Part of this is because each Conquest map is littered with hidden rewards that you'll earn just for taking over the tile containing it, and this can often be done without evey playing full games.
Make sure to spend some time in Conquest taking as much territory as possible, and this will help you net some very fast rewards.
Use the Marketplace to buy and sell
This can be the most difficult, but also the most lucrative method of earning stubs in MLB The Show 21.
Any time you get items that you don't need, whether they're players, uniforms, anything, head to the Community Marketplace and sell them.
You'll have to make your own calls about sell prices to choose, and whether purchasing something to sell later seems worthwhile, but it can be a huge boost if you get used to working the Marketplace.
