Worldwide Asset Exchange (WAX), an NFT-based blockchain & decentralized wallet, announced the coming launch of a new baseball card NFT collection via its partnership with Topps.
Collectors have enjoyed finding their favorite players on cards for decades, and now MLB makes its way into the digital blockchain era. On Tuesday, April 20th at 1 PM ET, Topps will release these baseball cards as NFTs for the first time. The cards will depict artwork from the physical 2021 Topps Series 1 Baseball release. Consumers will be able to collect officially licensed Topps MLB NFT collectibles that have been digitally enhanced and reimagined.
“We’re excited to be working with a venerable heritage brand like Topps to tokenize MLB trading cards for the modern collector,” said William Quigley, co-founder of WAX. “The WAX Blockchain is the safest and most intuitive platform for Topps’ largest NFT release yet.”
The Topps MLB collectibles will be available with 1,986 action-packed cards that can be purchased in two different pack sizes. Standard (6) and Premium (45) card packs will be available, with all cards being pre-minted before opening begins. Collect all of your favorite athletes in up to 10 dazzling rarities. Ranging from Common to Legendary, these cards can be found in stunning motion graphics, old-school designs, and much more.
In celebration of the new set, the first 10,000 people who sign-up for email alerts today and give their WAX wallet names will be eligible for a free, limited edition Topps MLB Opening Day NFT pack. To enroll for an Opening Day Pack and learn more about the release, please visit Topps on WAX.
