April has been an exciting month for baseball which makes these April Monthly Awards downright electric! There's three different ways to get your hands on them:
- Play the new Monthly Awards Moments to earn one pack
- Find them in the Monthly Awards Choice Pack in the Show Shop
- Filter the Community Market for Monthly Awards Series
The April Monthly Awards Pack purchased in the Show Shop is a Choice Pack! That means you get to pick the Flashback player item you want, but there's a twist. When you open the pack, you will either see the five Gold Monthly Awards Flashbacks OR you will see the three Diamond Monthly Awards Flashbacks. Then, you can choose one Flashback from the round.
The Monthly Awards Pack is available in the Show Shop for 20,000 Stubs and guarantees one Gold or Diamond Monthly Awards Flashback. Packs are limited to 5 per account and only 25,000 packs are available to purchase, which means they can sell out.
Bellinger had a pretty good month. Tying for the most home runs hit before May 1st is impressive alone. However, he also set new records for his 47 hits, 37 RBIs and 97 total bases before May 1st.
With numbers like that he has earned the spot as the "Lightning Guy" reward for collecting all 19 of the April Monthly Awards and Topps Now cards. Bellinger's player item cannot be sold.
Tim Anderson had an amazing start to the season, batting .375 with 6 HR, and knocked in 18 RBI. You can find him in the April Monthly Awards Packs or in the Community Market.
Yates' good velocity and frustrating splitter can be found in the April Monthly Awards Packs or in the Community Market.
Blake Snell isn't the only pitcher for the Rays that had a strong start in 2019. Tyler Glasnow had a 5-0 record and a 1.75 ERA in 36 innings pitched.
Glasnow throws a high 90's fastball and a low 80's curveball. Add him to your rotation by finding him in the April Monthly Awards Pack or in the Community Market.
TOPPS NOW PACKS

NEW BATTLE ROYALE REWARDS
Two new Legends are now available in the Battle Royale Flawless Reward Pack. You can earn the pack by going 12-0 in the Diamond Dynasty mode where you draft your team and go on win streaks. The updated Flawless Pack guarantees at least one of the two new Legends will appear, and remember, the Choice Pack gives you three cards to choose from.
Legend Eric Davis (Diamond, 94 OVR CF) enters the Flawless Reward Pack as a Double Diamond, lefty-killer sporting 125 power VS. left-handed pitchers. His speed and fielding make him an excellent centerfield option in your lineup, along with either corner outfield spot.
Since Michael Young played full seasons at four different infield positions, this Signature Series Michael Young (Diamond, 96 OVR SS) card is arguably the highest caliber utility infielder available in Diamond Dynasty. That will help you keep his bat in your lineup at any infield position.
NEW EVENT: MEXICO SERIES #2
Play in the new Mexico Series #2 Event now in Diamond Dynasty. Build a team of Astros, Angels, or Common players to earn Breakout Flashback Kendrys Morales (Gold, 82 OVR 1B).
You only need four wins in this 72-hour Event to claim Morales. On your way to that reward, you will earn one Gold, Silver and Bronze Live Series player. Before you build your Event squad, play the Warm-Up Moments in the Wild Card set to earn Rookie Flashback George Springer (Silver, 75 OVR RF)
