NFT rookie cards are coming to the NFL
Panini America, which traditionally makes standard hard-copy playing cards, will be providing 16 NFL prospects with their own 1-of-1 NFT after the Thursday night’s 2022 NFL Draft.
This year’s deals include top prospects such as Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson, Ohio State’s Garrett Wilson, and Chris Olave along with Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral. Each player is presented on the card in their college uniform and will have their new NFL team’s logo stamped above their name.
Given the scarcity of the card, the value in this transaction could come 10 or 15 years down the line. The idea is akin to Tom Brady or Patrick Mahomes flipping their rookie cards after a Super Bowl win or upon retirement. A Mahomes card is currently listed on eBay for $120,000 while a Brady card sold for $2.3 million earlier this year.
