NFT’s have dominated the crypto headlines in the past 3 months. Stories of William Shatner NFT’s and tech entrepreneur tweets selling for multiple millions of dollars have been shared, and the value of NFT’s has been ever fluctuating since.
Topps Trading Cards are now available as NFT’s, and the Godzilla NFT has launched.
Topps Trading Cards, who have licenses for Star Wars, Disney and Marvel recently entered the NFT fray testing out the value of their cards in a digitized format with their Garbage Pail Kids range. The cards sold, albeit not at William Shatner level prices, but the concept was proven. They have recently launched their new highly desired Godzilla range, and the Ultimate Collection of cards sold out within 3 minutes.

There were 5,000 of these packs available each containing 30 cards each. They quickly made their way onto the AtomicHub to be resold, some with a price in the millions of dollars. These sets haven’t even been unpacked yet, so there’s no true way of knowing the value of the cards inside, but if you managed to pick up a Legendary Card which has a 0.11% chance of being in a $100 original value Collection set, the value of that card could be in the tens of millions judging from similar highest rarity cards in other franchises.
Other Topps NFT’s
Whether Topps’s Marvel Collect, Star Wars and Disney cards can make their way onto NFT platforms to be sold remains to be seen. The cards can already be collected “digitally” through their online apps, and although technically not NFT’s as of yet they could be deemed to be the collectibles. Whether users of those apps technically already own the NFT’s will be an interesting and legally unprecedented concept to explore.
You can currently buy the majority of cards through “coins” on the app, which can be earned simply by watching ads, or just completing small side tasks. For a better chance at the rarer cards you can purchase a kind of in-app digital currency, which feels a lot like Crypto, and that purchase aspect might be the most confusing element – have users of the app already bought the NFT card, even before it’s listed on an NFT marketplace?
This is certainly an interesting space to watch.
