MLB The Show 21 celebrates MLB debut of Wander Franco

We've seen a variety of unique card series in MLB The Show 21 Diamond Dynasty, and the Prospect series has turned the spotlight on some of the potential future stars of the league.

One of those has been Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Wander Franco, who was finally called up from the minors by the Rays on June 20, 2021.

One day later, the official MLB The Show 21 account on Twitter shared a teaser for what we know now is Wander Week, a special limited time celebration of Wander Franco.

It was a fitting choice, as the 20-year-old rookie made an immediate impact with a three-run Home Run against the Boston Red Sox in his first major league game.

How to Unlock 99 OVR Prospect Wander Franco

For players who are able to procure the Prospect Wander Franco card in Diamond Dynasty, it'll only remain boosted to the 99 OVR rating for a limited time, but will still be a strong 91 OVR option after the boost ends.

Prospect Wander Franco was previously available in the Space 1 Choice Pack, and as such the item acquired that way can be bought and sold on the Community Marketplace, where you can currently acquire it for over 70,000 Stubs.

However, the best way to earn him is through the new limited time Moments that have been added, though keep in mind that the item earned this way cannot be sold.
