Major League Baseball and MLB Players, Inc. have partnered with Topps to create the 2021 Topps MLB Inception NFT Collection.
Furthermore, after using the Wax blockchain for projects like the Garbage Pail Kids and Godzilla series, Topps is now employing the Avalanche blockchain for NFTs.
THE FIRM IS OPERATING ON AVALANCHE BLOCKCHAIN
This September, the Topps web portal, Toppsnfts.com, will house the new series of NFT baseball cards, which will be manufactured on the Avalanche (AVAX) blockchain. The avalanche token has witnessed tremendous gains recently, with advances of 126.6 percent in two weeks and 223 percent in the last month.
The most recent Topps MLB Inception NFT series is based on the company’s previous physical card series.
“Iconic Topps card designs, motion animations, facsimile signatures, and digital relic content that showcases MLB rookies, emerging stars, veteran mainstays, and more,” according to Topps.
Topps isn’t the first company to release MLB NFTs, as the company previously released MLB cards on the Wax Blockchain, with Godzilla and Garbage Pail Kids (GPK) cards.
Furthermore, the “2021 Series 1 Baseball Card Collection,” the first MLB series Topps released with Wax, was released in April.
WHO SAYS WHAT?
Numerous people congratulated the firm on its new journey of NFT partnership.
President of Ava Labs, John Wu wrote that NFTs are the next generation sports collectibles.
Senior Writer, Ken Rosenthal posted a tweet congratulating the firm and wrote “Celebrate baseball’s brightest young stars as their @MLB careers take shape with the 2021 Topps MLB Inception NFT Collection releasing September 9th.”
Wax.io still boasts well-known partners including Robotech, Atari, Funko, Capcom, Street Fighter, and Bratz, despite not making Topps MLB cards. In addition, after 74 years of collaboration, MLB is discontinuing its association with Topps.
MLB has announced that starting in 2026, it will collaborate with sports apparel firm Fanatics to issue MLB trading cards. For the Bundesliga, Topps is also issuing Bazooka bubble gum-themed NFTs and non-fungible token souvenirs.
