Candy Digital to produce National Baseball Hall of Fame NFTs

Candy Digital has agreed a partnership with the National Baseball Hall of Fame to distribute NFTs showcasing some of the sports’ most famous moments and names.

Major League Baseball photos and videos from the archives will be turned into officially licensed digital collectibles in a bid to drive the awareness of baseball’s heritage.

Candy Digital will use 3D scanning technology to bring future collections to life as it looks to engage with younger audiences and cement its place as one of America’s pastimes.

National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum president Josh Rawitch said: “Sharing baseball’s storied history with its passionate fans is core to our mission.

“Digital collectibles provide us with an entirely new way for our fans to learn about the game’s legends and interact with the incredible artifacts from our collection.

Launching in August, the ‘2022 Hall of Fame Icon’ collection will be made available in packs of four or 10 and feature a selection of cards ranging from ‘core’ to ‘legendary’.

These cards will then be available to trade via its online marketplace with prices dictated by the desirability and rarity of the card in question.

Candy Digital chief executive Scott Lawin said: “Baseball has a rich, storied history that creates a deep bond between the sport and its fans. Celebrating the players that have made baseball great has been a key part of our focus since day one.

“We’re thrilled to be launching the Baseball Legends Series to introduce unique digital collectibles that connect the next generation of baseball fans to the history of the sport in exciting new ways.”

Those who attended Hall of Fame weekend in Cooperstown, New York were given free Hall of Fame induction digital collectibles including Gil Hodges, Jim Kaat and Minnie Miñoso.

Candy Digital has also confirmed its Hall of Fame NFTs will be minted on the more environmentally-friendly Ethereum-compatible blockchain Palm.
