TRADING CARD COMPANY LAUNCHES NFT BASEBALL COLLECTION
NFTs, also known as non-fungible tokens, are taking the online trading card world by storm. When it comes to Topps baseball cards, collectors will now have the option to go digital. Topps’ first NFT baseball trading cards just hit the market. So, exactly how were these digital Topps baseball cards created?
CREATION OF THE NFT TOPPS BASEBALL CARDS
When it comes to digital baseball cards, there is a lot to love about the 2021 Topps Series 1 Baseball NFT collection. For starters, these online trading cards received the seal of approval from the MLB. How do they stack up against traditional Topps trading cards? The NFTs are digitally-enhanced and creatively reimagined. Traditional baseball trading cards provide collectors with an air of excitement as they rip open a physical pack of cards. When it comes to the digital counterparts, collectors will enjoy themed animated backdrops and 3D team cubes. So, what are the most valuable baseball cards in this collection? Perhaps the one-of-one Platinum Anniversary Signature cards (for collectors who act quickly).
ONLINE BASEBALL TRADING CARDS + THE MLB
When it comes to going digital, this set of NFT Topps baseball cards were the first to receive an official MLB license. Why the sudden interest? The online trading card industry has been booming, with both record-breaking sales and new investments as of late. While there was a recent launch of NFT Panini baseball cards, the MLB may have chosen to partner with Topps due to their innovation. Just recently Topps collaborated with Trevor Lawrence on a brand new collection of physical trading cards, which are still of increasing interest at this time.
