All cards from this Program are for Set 1. We should note that for the Captains, you will need April Topps Now hitters in the lineup in order to activate Rendon’s boost, and likewise with pitchers for Musgrove’s card.

More cards and rewards will be added throughout the month of April. Expect additions to drop every Friday in Diamond Dynasty. Also, keep in mind that all Topps Now cards obtained through this collection are not sellable. This is a change from prior years, as Topps Now cards could be sold.
