We’re comfortable the game Sorare will launch in the U.S. will comply with U.S. laws.”

Players in the top-flight Dutch soccer league have been accused of using inside information to profit off Sorare NFT player cards. Also, the British government since October has been investigating whether to classify Sorare as a gambling product in need of licensing, something the company insists it is not. Switzerland has banned Sorare (pronounced ‘so rare’) as a foreign gambling company.

The look and design of the NFT player cards are still being worked out, and while unique to MLB, the expectation is that they’ll be recognizable as a Sorare product.

Major League Baseball is entering the NFT space with the help of Fanatics Chairman Michael Rubin and the formation of a new company called Candy Digital.

The firm agreed to a multiyear licensing agreement with MLB to produce nonfungible tokens. The first digital collectible will be an exclusive Lou Gehrig NFT, which will be available for bidding on the Fourth of July. It will honor Gehrig’s “Luckiest Man” speech on July 4, 1939, when the ironman New York Yankees first baseman retired after contracting amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a disease that impacts the nervous system.

The Lou Gehrig NFT will also commemorate MLB’s first Lou Gehrig Day on Tuesday.
The league wants to raise more awareness to help combat ALS, also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Specific terms of Candy Digital’s agreement with MLB were not made available.

I think that’s the best thing I can do for them. Just do what other folks did for me.”

The NFT art piece, which features several memorabilia items alongside narration by Bob Costas, includes:

• Mays’ high school diploma, with his assigned profession. White students in segregated Alabama were allowed to decide on their own professions, but Black students were not.

• One of Mays’ report cards from high school; he was considered the best baseball player, point guard and quarterback in the state but received a B in gym class (he did get an A in sportsmanship).

• A scouting report on Mays — who is described as a “colored boy,” as all Black players were before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in 1947.

Baseball and the union will get a share of those sales.

Unlike Sorare’s controversial soccer product in Europe, the MLB game will not reward users with cash prizes.

But because these are NFTs we’re talking about, there is money involved beyond the licensing fees Sorare pays MLB and the union. The sports world was taken by storm in early 2021 when NBA Top Shot NFT collectables of player highlights skyrocketed to hundreds of millions of dollars in resales – with both the NBA and its union getting a cut of each transaction.

NBA Top Shot sales have cooled considerably, but sports organizations (and innumerable companies, organizations and people outside of sports) continue to roll out NFT projects to capitalize on the phenomenon.

Those are not gamified NFTs.

Topps, the venerable baseball card maker, since 2012 has sold licensed digital MLB cards used in a fantasy game called Topps Bunt, but those are not NFT cards and not resold on an internal secondary marketplace (although they can trade hands on eBay and similar sites).

Obviously, the success or failure of the NFT game won’t be clear until after its launch, which the principals hope will be midsummer.

Victor Matheson, a sports economist and professor at the College of the Holy Cross, likened the Sorare MLB deal as akin to Pokémon or Magic: The Gathering, two wildly popular games whose physical cards, like rare baseball cards, sell for big sums on the secondary market but whose digital versions are much less popular.

Sorare launched its mobile app for soccer last week in user beta, and the MLB product will follow sometime after its launch this summer, Spoon said.

One of the criticisms of sports NFT collectables is that many buyers see them as alternative investments they hope to parlay into cash, so the NFTs have little utility beyond speculation or collecting. Gamification of NFTs has been one way to provide more utility.

Baseball and Sorare said they are aware of criticisms that the electricity-hogging blockchain technology that is the backbone of these products is environmentally harmful, and that the financial ecosystem created around NFTs can be harmful for investment-minded fans – or gamed by bad actors (or users who can simply afford to buy the best NFTs).

“Those are not there to be financial instruments.

Topps wasn’t the first company to sell baseball cards, but it is the company that has endured the longest; the 2021 season is the 70th consecutive year that Topps has produced baseball cards (as noted with a logo on the flagship set, which was released last month.)

The NBA’s foray into the world of NFTs — you’ve probably heard of the Top Shot phenomenon — showed Topps and everyone else the appetite for these new collectibles is quite a bit ravenous.

What is an NFT?

NFT stands for Non-Fungible Token.

A few weeks ago, Sporting News asked Mets pitcher Taijuan Walker, the first MLB player to release and sell an NFT — proceeds went to charity, btw — how he would describe an NFT. His answer: “The easiest way to explain this is like this: It’s digital art. It’s art that you can own and have for the rest of your life.

The extremely popular fantasy football (soccer) blockchain game, Sorare, is set to expand and launch a baseball/MLB version of their game. Sorare is expanding from just football, where they racked in backing from 247 clubs, who they now cover. These came via either individual club partnerships or a partnership with a league, like Major League Soccer.

Sorare’s New MLB Game

Earlier this week, Sorare announced that it has signed a deal with both Major League Baseball (MLB), and its Players Association.

They plan to launch a new baseball fantasy sports game. This builds on their already successful football game, which covers football worldwide.

In March, the soccer game had 370,000 monthly active users in 185 countries.

“Sorare has built a new baseball gaming experience that will excite fans around collecting Players’ NFTs, building winning lineups and competing against baseball fans all over the world,” said Tony Clark, executive director of Major League Baseball Players Association, in a statement. “We are very excited about our partnership and the effect Sorare’s first foray into North American sports will have on the growth of our game globally.”

OneTeam, the MLBPA’s group player licensing partner, facilitated the deal. “We are proud to have collaborated with visionary partners in Sorare, who have reimagined the fan experience through their NFT-based games.
