More MLB The Show 21 info will be arriving tomorrow, as San Diego Studios shed some light on the Collector's Editions.

It is slightly confusing, however, with there being a Jackie Robinson Deluxe Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition and a Jackie Robinson Edition.

This has been spotted on Reddit, by the same person - anerdydad - who leaked the main cover star - Fernando Tatis Jnr - a day before release.

Brooklyn Dodger Robinson was the first African-American to play in the MLB in the modern era, going on to become the first-ever Rookie of the Year, an All-Star for six straight seasons, and became the first black player to win the National League MVP Award.

  • Dual Entitlement (PS4 disk & PS5 Download Code)
  • Limited Edition MLB The Show x New Era 9FIFTY Cap
