NFTs and Trading Cards

Topps Baseball Card NFT is not the first digital card collection to make its way onto a blockchain. Way back in December, it was revealed that digital trading cards inspired by the British sci-fi series Doctor Who was coming to Ethereum. The NFTs were made to play the Doctor Who: Worlds Apart digital trading card game. There was even a pre-sale event in which players could purchase packs of the NFT trading cards via the official website.

Other NFT trading card collections include Mutant Warriors, created by Simone Arena. Arena was an official artist for Topps, working on artwork for the aforementioned Garbage Pail Kids and other collections. Mutant Warriors is powered by EOS Amsterdam, a founding block producer for the EOS mainnet.

Meanwhile, the Topps baseball NFT has been compared to the NBA Top Shot, whose sales have surpassed $511 million. Top Shot NFTs are purchasable video clips of basketball moments. In February, one of these NFTs sold for over $200,000.
