Bob Gibson may play in the most competitive Diamond Dynasty position, but he still stands out as quality acquisition for any team.

Gibson's best talents in-game are his 103 Stamina, 97 Arm Strength, 91 Break, and 89 Fielding.

Gibson brings a unique skillset to the table, coming from an era where pitchers were much more involved in fielding. While he's still a great jack of all trades as a starting pitcher, he's even greater shutting down plays in the field.

Missions

As always there are a variety of missions players can do to get points to unlock reward tiers. Once you get 50 points, you unlock Bob Gibson's 1962 Breakout card and 500 stubs while you're at it.

The missions involve striking out opponents with Cardinals players, pitching with breakout pitchers, exchanging a list of starting pitchers in for points, and beating the cpu Cardinals on All-Star+ difficulty.

Each missions gives ten or less points, so they won't be enough to get Gibson on their own.
