This isn’t the first time Topps has released MLB NFTs, as the company has launched MLB cards on the Wax Blockchain alongside many other brands like Godzilla and Garbage Pail Kids (GPK) cards. Additionally, the first MLB Topps series released with Wax was released in April and was called the “2021 Series 1 Baseball Card Collection.”

The press release announcing the new Inception series states that the choice to use Avalanche is due to the claimed benefits of blockchain as being “fast, inexpensive and environmentally friendly”.

“The site removes the need for special wallets or token apps and provides a one-stop location to buy, sell, and explore officially licensed Topps NFT collections,” Topps detailed. Evan Kaplan, General Manager of MLB Players, Inc., said the release of Inception NFT is a historic milestone. “This Topps NFT product comes at a time when so many talented young players are emerging in baseball and offers collectors a new way to connect with them as their careers take shape,” Kaplan remarked. The Director of MLB Players, Inc. added:

This is an opportunity for fans to own a collectible piece of baseball history.

Although Wax.io does not produce Topps MLB cards, the company still has well-known partners like Robotech, Atari, Funko, Capcom, Street Fighter, and Bratz. Additionally, MLB is ending its relationship with Topps after 74 years with the company. MLB has revealed that it will partner with sportswear maker Fanatics in 2026 and that the company will produce MLB trading cards in the future. Topps also releases Bazooka bubble gum branded NFTs and non-fungible collectibles for the Bundesliga.
