According to ESPN, the MLB is set to break into the digital asset, or NFT, game. Gianmarco Castronovo and fellow baseball fanatics eagerly anticipate the first release, which is slated for July 4, 2021.

An NFT of Lou Gehrig giving his famous “Luckiest Man” speech will be the MLB’s first pitch into digital asset dealings.  The MLB also has an NFT series collaboration with Topps, which brings the trading card world into the digital sphere.  Will this reshape how baseball card collectors manage their collections?  Only time will tell!  Gianmarco Castronovo is excited to see where NFTs will lead in the MLB — especially in the way of baseball cards.
