Popular candy and collectibles company Topps has announced the launch of its 2021 Topps NOW MLB World Series Non-Fungible Token (NFT) collection, following the second 2021 series of the Topps Baseball NFT Collection. Similar to the company’s latest NFT drops, Topps is using the Avalanche blockchain network for the new World Series NFT collection.

Topps Launches MLB World Series NFT Collection

Over the past year, the American company that produces chewing gum, candy and Bazooka collectibles, Topps Company, Inc., has been focusing heavily on non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain technology. The company has released a number of collections featuring fan favorites like Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Garbage Pail Kids. Two weeks ago, the company released a collection called Godzilla Rage that included NFT packs that featured 17 pages of comedic animations.

Following the recent Topps Baseball NFT 2021 Collection, Topps has launched the Topps NOW MLB World Series NFT 2021 Collection. Powered by the Avalanche blockchain, the new dedicated World Series series features “officially licensed player images and exclusive digital animations to NFT”. The series launched on October 27, and if fans pick up the entire series by Tuesday, November 9 at 11:59 p.m. ET, they’ll receive a special Topps NOW NFT variant as a reward.

According to Topps, the 2021 World Series NFT Collector Packs will cost $25 per pack, which includes one digital NFT collectible per pack. Only 1,000 packs are available per day and each pack has an equal chance of earning rarities as all singles are rare. The announcement notes that NFT buyers will receive packs within three business days of the end of the MLB World Series.

Tobin Lent, vice president and global general manager of Topps Digital Sports and Entertainment, explains that NFTs will bring the same greatest moments as physical cards in the Topps NOW series. “For years, Topps NOW has celebrated the greatest moments of the iconic World Series and we are thrilled to bring the same excitement to our community of passionate NFT collectors,” said Lent. The executive added:

Topps NOW is a hugely popular card series, so being able to expand this product line as an NFT is another way Topps continues to innovate in digital collectibles.

In addition to the World Series NFT collection drop, fans who attend the World Series in person this year will have the opportunity to redeem exclusive Topps NOW NFTs specific to this game. Fans simply scan the tickets World Series on each match day or take advantage of the Ballpark app. The redemption period for exclusive Topps NOW NFTs will end on November 15 at 11:59 p.m. (ET), the company’s announcement concludes.

Sports NFTs have been popular, and Topps has taken advantage of the physical collections of cards it has released in the past. Another popular sports-related NFT project is NBA Top Shot, which has recorded sales of $717.93 million to date. Sales of NBA Top Shot have increased significantly since the company added popular former NBA player Shaquille O’Neal.
