Jackie Robinson Day is always a special event during the baseball season, so the latest edition of This Week in Perfect Team (TWiPT) honored his legacy by introducing a whopping 25 new cards that pay tribute to the greatest Negro League players. The Josh Gibson card is the latest Perfect 100 card added to the game.
OOTP Developments’ Perfect Team Community Manager Kris Jardine, who hosts TWiPT, noted that a Jackie Robinson card wasn’t included because he already has 4 cards in the game and his Negro League card would already be very close to one of them. You can watch him explain that and introduce all the new cards in the YouTube replay.
You can catch future TWiPT episodes live every Monday at 9 PM ET at Twitch.tv/ootpdevelopments.
