Topps NFT Baseball Collection to go Live this Month

Topps has revealed that they will be launching their first NFT baseball card collection later this April. Topps on Monday advocated that it would establish its 2021 flagship baseball card collection as NFTs for the first time, in collaboration with MLB and MLB Players Inc., the for-profit commercial arm of the MLB Players Association. The sale of Topps first NFT baseball card goes live on April 20th. The collection, formally titled “The 2021 Topps Series 1 Baseball NFT”, will pay homage to its first annual flagship baseball card set. It will emphasize iconic artwork with digital improvements and animated backdrops.

This NFT will be accessible on the WAX (Worldwide Asset Platform) blockchain platform. Topps first employed the WAX platform to launch their Garbage Pail Kids collectibles earlier this year. The first wave will include 50,000 standard packs, each comprising six cards for $5. There will also be about a further 24,000 premium packs, which provide 45 cards for $100. Moreover, Topps has declared they will confer the initial 10,000 users who sign up for email notifications with a free “exclusive Topps MLB Opening Day NFT Pack.”

Various Digital Cards have Entered Blockchain.

Furthermore, Topps Baseball Card NFT is not the first digital card collection to make its way onto a blockchain. In December, the digital trading cards inspired by the British sci-fi series Doctor Who was coming to Ethereum. The NFTs came into existence to play the Doctor Who: Worlds Apart digital trading card game. There was indeed a pre-sale event in which players could buy packs of the NFT trading cards through the official website.

Other NFT trading card collections involve Mutant Warriors, developed by Simone Arena. Arena was an official artist for Topps, operating on artwork for the Garbage Pail Kids mentioned above and other collections. EOS Amsterdam, a founding block producer for the EOS mainnet, powers Mutant Warriors. Meanwhile, experts compare the Topps baseball NFT and the NBA Top Shot, whose sales have exceeded $511 million.
