MLB The Show 20: Mickey Mantle's in the Game And You Can Get Him at Launch

The big reveal late in the SDS stream today was the reveal of switch-hitting legend Mickey Mantle being in MLB The Show 20.

This is a huge get for the series, and he will also be available in the pre-order diamond choice pack.

This is the pack you will get if you pre-order any “premium” version of MLB The Show 20. Basically, if you pre-order any version of the game that is not just the base version ($60 USD), then you will get to pick from one of these seven players. If you pre-order the most expensive version of the game, you will get to select two of these players.

    A 98?
    With the other options only being high 80s, I guess it's safe to say nearly every DD team is going to have Mickey Mantle on it.

    You're reading it backwards, but I can see how you would based on how the card is applied to that page in comparison to the others.

    I read it backwards at first to until I realized that 98 was actually an 86

    Looks like an 86.

    I'm not a DD player so the only reason i'm excited about legends is to have them put on teams so I can create all time teams (or as close as you can get).

    That would make significantly more sense. What an awkward positioning.

    Yeah even I did a double take. The way the diamond is pointed is how I figured it out haha.
    I actually don't understand the devs desire to put in cards that are oriented landscape instead of portrait. It is not like we have any way to rotate them in the game itself so they are always displayed sideways.
    Wish they would associate player personalities with these legends. Mantle never celebrated his homers. He ran around the bases with his head down as he did not want to show up the pitcher.
    A great add to the legends though. Now, get Maris in there.

    As much as I love the legends they are adding, I really wish they translated to Franchise well. Capping offline stats to 99 is becoming a problem with all of these highly rated cards. If I want to use Mickey Mantle in Franchise, he would't be an all time great, he'd just be a great player. The 99 caps in franchise needs to be pushed back to 125.
    Love it. Can't wait to see all of the new legends in the game. This is what keeps me playing the show. I start an offline franchise with all time teams as well as classic season rosters. Love the player vault and roster vaults...some great talent in this community to make it happen.

    but was that a frustration flip on an out ? I really dont want to see old-timers like Mantle doing moose ears and goofy stuff at first-base every time he gets a 2 out single in the 8th inning of a 10-2 loss. I wish those celebrations had an off button.
    Mantle was one of my favorite players as a kid.  It's a shame he couldn't beat the alcohol. Similar to what happened to Hack Wilson.  
    Good to see the Show honor his legend.
    Love the legends that are offered this year Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays are among my favorites growing up. To go a step further it be cool to add some quirkiness for instance Willie Mays has his basket catch and I would love to see it in the game also Mickey Mantle occasionally would blow bubbles with his bubble gum out in center field I don't want him doing it every time he's out there but once in awhile would be mind blowing to see. Just my two cents
