09/07/2021 MLB NFT Auction Includes LA Dodgers World Series Ring

Major League Baseball (MLB) is to auction a physical 2020 Los Angeles Dodgers World Series Champions ring as part of a non-fungible token (NFT) drop.

  • In addition to the ring, the winning bidder also receives the chance to throw the first pitch at a Dodgers home game. 
  • The ring will be inscribed with the token ID of the NFT and is nearly identical to those awarded to the Dodgers to mark their World Series win last year. The NFT is a high-definition digital edition of the ring.
  • The NFT will be auctioned on MLB's new NFT platform, the Galaxy Digital-backed Candy.com.
  • MLB's first NFT auction, which closes at 7 p.m. ET today, features video excerpts of Lou Gehrig's historic "Luckiest Man" speech and a three-dimensional bust of the Hall of Fame first baseman.
  • The highest bid on Gehrig's "Luckiest Man" NFT is currently $26,555.
  • Because the Dodgers' World Series NFT includes a physical prize and a real-life VIP experience at Dodger Stadium, it is likely to have appeal outside the digital world.
  • The auction opens at 12 p.m. ET on July 12 and will run until 7 p.m. on July 15.
  • Profit from the auction will benefit the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation.


The auction winner receives this digital single edition in addition to a physical 2020 Dodgers World Series ring.

This is a photo i took of my son playing around in one of our cat carriers, redressed to express the concern and damage the continuation of the trump administration could bring to the world in 2020 and beyond. Unlike the majority of my historic work found on opensea, all content was conceived and taken by me, so felt perfect to use as my first piece on Known Origin.

Who will be the most Meowfool of the Meowfoolest?! 6 HaCKittieZ are fighting for the crown of madness! It is time for crowns to change their history: people, this is the crown of insanity we are talking about. So tell us, who is insaner than the insanest of collectors? Only the artists - the creators - would know, while crowning the one who is brave enough to play with the craziest possibilities of Async programmable art, on these 6 HaCKittieZ. Welcome to the feast of fools. HaCKittieZ is a collaboration of Hackatao, CryptoKitties and Async. The 6 KittieZ are a reinterpretation by Hackatao of the CryptoKitties’ classic elements, following their own style and getting inspiration from their own art pieces.
