Wade Boggs, a Hall of Fame baseball legend, is teaming up with NFT company Firma Pro to create one-of-a-kind NFT memorabilia of the world’s greatest sports and entertainment celebrities.
Firma Pro, like traditional autographed memorabilia, allows collectors to assemble and display Asset Backed NFTs, or NFTs that represent real-world items, Globe News Wire reported.
Wade Boggs to offer unique NFTs
I’ve been following the NFT market, and I’m excited to be a part of it,” Wade Boggs said. “I, on the other hand, wanted my NFTs to be more than just a digital trading card. We’re offering something special to memorabilia collectors.”
Firma Pro’s first NFT memorabilia drop will feature Items from Boggs’ collection. Boggs will also serve as a consultant to the company.
Future drops will feature other legendary sports and entertainment celebrities’ collections. Firma Pro’s memorabilia is exclusively licensed and cannot be re-minted in the future, resulting in one-of-a-kind, limited-edition NFTs.
NFTs minted by Firma Pro backed by real tangible items
Firma Pro’s co-founder and President, David Austin, said, “Firma Pro is excited to announce our partnership with Wade.” “I can’t think of a more legendary figure to lead Firma Pro through the digital transformation of memorabilia collecting.
Firma Pro’s NFTs are ‘asset-backed,’ which means they’re backed by real, tangible assets. We’re talking about personal belongings of a celebrity. Items that a collector would not be able to obtain otherwise.”
This year’s NFT market has exploded, with notable sports, music, and entertainment figures releasing collections that sell out in seconds. Frequently reselling for multiples of the original price. Recent NFTs, on the other hand, have featured artwork and video, while highlighting the celebrity’s personalities and careers, that are not tied to physical items. Firma Pro provides a unique service.
“Imagine owning a piece of digital sports history, curated and cared for by the person who means the most to you,” Austin said. “We want our celebrities to reveal a personal side to them. Show the world what they value the most. Nothing less than full sentimental value.”
