Honus Wagner made his MLB The Show debut in MLB 19. His best card was his Signature Series card, but there were a few things that were very notable about this card. It was the first flashback collection reward MLB The Show introduced. You needed so many of the seven card types (Breakout, Rookie, Signature Series, Postseason, etc.) to earn vouchers to unlock Wagner. While it was a Signature Series card, the card art was his historic 1909 T206 card art. That makes it the first real non-Topps brand card to appear in the game.

Once you unlocked the card, you got a player with near maxed-out contact at 123/125 vs RHP/LHP, along with 88/89 power. Wagner had maxed out plate vision at 125 and hitting clutch. Fielding-wise, he had 91 field and 90 arm strength. He could cover plenty of ground too with 96 speed. Wagner had secondary positions for everywhere but catcher and second base, so you could play him nearly anywhere else in the field if you already had a good shortstop in place.
