On 14 December 2019, the bat the legendary Babe Ruth used to hit his 500th home run was sold at auction for the stunning sum of $1,000,800. Collectibles such as this are a serious business: according to Forbes, the sports memorabilia industry — just one part of the greater collectibles market — is worth $370 billion.
Here at stryking.io, our goal is to bring you the future of collectibles by introducing digital sports memorabilia with the properties of true ownership, authenticity, and scarcity.
FC Bayern Munich collectibles go digital
The stryking.io platform uses blockchain technology to produce non-fungible token (NFT) sports collectibles. Our first auction featured FC Bayern Munich — one of the most popular and accomplished football clubs in the world — where we sold 18 Legendary NFT player cards. Amongst them was the Polish superstar striker Robert Lewandowski, who fetched 3.8 ETH.
You might ask: what does “Legendary” mean for a player card? There are five rarity tiers for FC Bayern Munich player cards: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. The higher the tier, the rarer the card — with the scarcity and authenticity of each of these digital collectibles guaranteed thanks to blockchain technology.
Holiday auction of special edition Legendary cards — ends 6 January 2020
This holiday season we are holding an auction for Legendary Christmas 2019 and New Year 2020 player cards. All 24 team members of FC Bayern Munich for the 2019/2020 season will be available. The special edition player cards are exceptionally rare as they will only be produced this holiday season, with only two sets of 24 player cards minted.
The FC Bayern Munich collection will continue to grow as we introduce lower rarity tiers in the future, so these ultra-rare cards could be the jewel in your collection.
Check out the auctions being held between 20 December 2019 to 6 January 2020; where bundles of both full teams and 4 players bundles will be listed on English and Dutch style auctions.
