The Great Egg Hunt Program Charisma Players

The Show 23 Charisma Series

Over a month ago on April 7, MLB The Show 23 released a new program for the Easter Holiday weekend known as The Great Egg Hunt – and its packed with some great rewards. Among them, are two 97 overall Charisma Players you can unlock.

Here are the two players:

The Great Egg Hunt Program Charisma Players

  • Reggie Jackson (RF) – Yankees
  • George Springer (RF) – Blue Jays

To secure both Jackson and Springer, you will need to reach Tiers 7 and 8 in the The Great Egg Hunt Program in MLB The Show 23 Diamond Dynasty.

Ranked Charisma Player Reward

Along with all of these great Charisma Series players, comes another special one fans can acquire in Diamond Dynasty, which is none other than Yankee legend, Lou Gehrig.

Previously, fans could have unlocked Gehrig’s Charisma Series card from the World Series Reward Choice Pack in the Season 1 Ranked Reward Path. But with Season 2 now here, Gehrig is only available in The Community Market.

Online Event Charisma Player

To go along with all of these fantastic Charisma Series Set 1 players, fans had the opportunity to secure an exclusive Charisma Series card from the Kaiju Part 1 Online Event.

Upon securing a total of 5 wins when playing the event, fans would have unlocked a Season 1 Events Rewind Choice Pack, and the 97 overall Diamond Charisma Series Gary Sheffield card illustrated above would have been one of the players available.

Since the Kaiju Part 1 Event is no longer active, Sheffield’s card is not available in the Online Event mode anymore. So should you want to secure his card still, you will have to purchase it from the Community Marketplace.

Online Battle Royale Charisma Player

Similarly to the Gary Sheffield Charisma Series card above, this awesome Charisma Ken Griffey Jr. item was one of the three Set 1 99 overall players you could have secured by playing the Diamond Dynasty online game mode, Battle Royale.

If you reached Tier 20 (100 BR Points required), you would have received the Set 1 Battle Royale Flawless Program Choice Pack, and Griffey Jr. would have been one of your player reward options to choose from. However, since Season 2 is now live, this Griffey Jr. card is no longer available in Battle Royale, and can only be secured in the Community Market for a hefty price.
