MLB The Show 23 was half annual sports game, half historical documentary – and it looks like San Diego Studio is responding to all the positive feedback from its previous release, and doubling down in MLB The Show 24. Case in point: its extremely unique Collector’s Edition celebrates the voice of black newspapers and writers, who played an important role in documenting the story and stats of the Negro Leagues.
“Without these newspapers and the pioneering baseball writers, the Negro Leagues wouldn’t have survived,” brand strategist Ramone Russell explained on the PS Blog. “They preserved this often-overlooked chapter of American and baseball history. This year’s collector’s edition theme is a tribute to those who helped give a voice to the voiceless.”
The steelbook case is designed to look like an old newspaper, with the words ‘Barrier Breakers’ emblazoned across it. You’ll also get a Limited Edition New Era hat, and a bunch of in-game goodies, as well as dual entitlement to the title on both PS5 and PS4. It’ll cost $124.99 and is available to pre-order now.
In addition, Sony has also announced the MVP Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition versions of the game, which feature the following content and perks:
As in previous years, the platform holder is committed to donating $1 to The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum for every Collector’s Edition sold, valid through 31st December, 2024. “Donations will help the Museum continue its work, which is dedicated to preserving and celebrating the rich history of African American baseball and its impact on the social advancement of America.”

Ok is it me but this is not available in UK? Someone help me out
Please may you help me out — Mumsie always said remember your manners
No brainer preorder, my son's gonna love it!
@Unffclcntrllerpd Sadly, the Collector's Editions for this game usually aren't available in the UK.
@get2sammyb thank you sir I was hoping just this once that I wasn’t going be hunting on eBay for the set or bear minimum the cap — after my tearful comment on the other MLB news I kinda hoped things had changed — such is life
Cool little collectors edition for an annual sports game, but feels weird that a collectors edition with physical goodies doesn't have a physical copy included
Silly boys rounders.
Nice to see you add to this, thank you for your contribution
What is the point of having a collectors edition steel book, with no disc?
