investment platform Collectable has announced an exclusive partnership with World Football Collection. Beginning in early 2022 and leading up to the World Cup, Collectable will offer fractional ownership of high-end soccer memorabilia. The first offerings from the collection will include match-worn jerseys from Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi, Pelé and others.
World Football Collection is considered the largest and deepest collection of soccer memorabilia in the world with over 300,000 items from 1860’s through the present, which they say is valued at over $60 million. The collection has been formed over 14 years and curated from all over the world.
The agreement marks Collectable’s first major agreement outside the U.S.
“This historic partnership will bring some of the finest soccer memorabilia assets to our leading fractional ownership platform,” said Ezra Levine, CEO of Collectable. “With the explosion in both the soccer and game worn markets, and the hobby’s growing international footprint, the partnership continues our mission to source and curate the most iconic, investment grade sports assets to fans, collectors and investors of all income brackets.”
Panini America and the NFL will launch the NFL’s first NFT Trading Card Packs beginning December 1.
The first NFTs will be done via the Mosaic brand with Prizm and Optic-style cards coming after Jan. 1.
The NFL NFT trading card packs will be available on Panini’s private blockchain platform, where fans can purchase NFL NFT trading cards in pack format and as individual cards. Fans can also auction their Panini NFL NFT trading cards in the Panini Blockchain Marketplace.
On a side note…what had been an annual Panini event has fallen by the wayside. The company’s Black Friday pack giveaway at local hobby shops won’t be happening for the second straight year.
