SDS reintroduced Prince Fielder back to MLB The Show in 2021, and his best card then was a 99 home run derby card. He then got another, even better card the following year with a 99 overall Face of the Franchise series card with over 100 contact on both sides and much improved vision. But in MLB The Show 23, SDS never gave Fielder an end-game level card despite doing so in the past two games.

Fielder's best card was a 99 overall Kaiju card. But looking at the attributes, they're pretty underwhelming for someone who can only play first base and designated hitter. He had 108/125 contact and power vs. RHP but only 92/104 vs. LHP. He had good vision at 91, but his clutch was just 100. First base is such a loaded position in the game, and this card probably did not make many squads past the first week it was released.

I don't know how you can give Prince Fielder's best card in the game less than 110 power vs left-handed pitching. I get he was better against right-handed pitching, but still. Fielder had 125 and 119 power vs LHP in '21 and '22. I guess SDS would have rather prioritized giving Kyle Schwarber three 99 overall cards, another 90 overall, as well as a gold flashback card, than to give Fielder an end game 99.
