The Candy Digital 2022 MLB ICON Leadoff Series NFT collection will have five different versions and rarities.
With Opening Day set for April 7, Candy Digital unveiled its first officially licensed Major League Baseball NFTs of 2022 on Thursday.
The 2022 MLB ICON Leadoff Series will include 720 players and the first drop is coming on April 12 at Noon Eastern. Each player will have NFTs in five different versions and rarities—Core, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. Also, each pack of five is guaranteed to contain at least two NFTs in a category other than the most common Core category. The packs will sell for $50 and there are additional release dates on April 19, May 3, May 10, May 24, May 31, June 14, and June 21.
NASCAR also dropped NFTs at the start of their new season. In February, Candy Digital released NASCAR Cup Series NFTs just before the Daytona 500 race.
In addition, each of these MLB ICON NFTs will feature dynamic stats, meaning the statistics for each NFT will update automatically each day. Each NFT will also come with an officially licensed multimedia showcase on-field highlight video. The Leadoff Series will include eight ultra-rare Candy World Series NFTs with a special utility that will be announced later during the 2022 season.
“Candy’s 2022 MLB ICON Leadoff Series revolutionizes what sports NFTs can be,” Candy Digital CEO Scott Lawin said. “We’re thrilled to demonstrate our commitment to innovation by delivering digital collectibles that deepen the connection between fans and players for the 2022 MLB season.”
Top Highlight of the Day NFTs
The start of the 2022 MLB season will also see the continuation of Candy’s MLB Play of the Day NFTs, featuring the top highlight of each day. The top highlight of each day will be selected by MLB and MLB Network, immortalized in NFT form and dropped the next day as a limited-edition item.
“We’re proud of the quick evolution these digital collectibles have taken in collaboration with our partners at Candy and MLB Players, Inc,” said Kenny Gersh, MLB’s executive vice president of business development. “Introducing dynamic stats into each NFT in this series gives fans an entirely new way to interact with our sport.”
