WAX has partnered up with Topps to bring Topps Series 1 Major League Baseball (MLB) cards to the NFT space!
MLB trading cards originated in the 1860s, with the most expensive card recently selling for $5.2 million. Topps monopolized the MLB trading card market in 1952, and this will be their biggest release yet on WAX. The launch will take place on April 20th at 1PM EST. To commemorate the 79th year anniversary of Topps creating MLB cards, the first collection on WAX will include an astonishing assortment of various major league athletes sporting their team gear.

There will be a total of 1,986 different cards released that can be found in 1 of 10 rarities. The two packs which will be available are ‘Standard’ and ‘Premium.’ The Standard pack will come with six cards for $5, and 50,000 of them will be available. The Premium pack will have 45 cards for $100 and 24,090 will be available.
Collectors have a chance at receiving 1 of 10 exciting rarities on each card; Common, Uncommon, Rare, Super rare, Epic, and Legendary. All Topps MLB cards are also pre-minted in the packs, so everyone has a chance at receiving lower mints no matter when the packs are opened.
After the roaring success of NBA Topshots, interest is likely to be super high for the MLB.
