Ben Joyce, Pitcher for the University of Tennessee Volunteers baseball team, broke the college world record for the fastest pitch ever thrown and has now teamed up with Fanpage and Athlete Licensing Company to mint his first ever NFT to commemorate this historic event.
Unless you were living under a rock on May 1, 2022, you heard about the pitch. It was the pitch barely seen around the world. Barely seen because it was travelling at a speed of 105.5 mph, which is the fastest pitch ever recorded in college baseball history. And now, for a limited time, collectors will have the chance to own the NFT which has been created to commemorate this historic moment in time.
“NFTs are quickly becoming a go-to vehicle for college athletes to monetize their name, image and likeness” said Billy Rodgers, Fanpage CEO. “It not only offers collectors an opportunity to invest in the future of rising athletes, but also gives fans, alumni and boosters the ability to help support these kids who dedicate so much of their lives to playing sports and bringing immense value to their universities”.
On June 9th this exclusive one-of-a-kind NFT collectible will be sold via auction at benjoyce.fanpage.com. The auction for this 1-of-1 Gold edition NFT will run for 4 days and will sure to be a valuable and coveted piece of Digital Memorabilia, which will be minted on the Polygon blockchain. In addition, a Silver, Bronze, and Common edition have been created which will be sold at lower price points and in larger quantities to give baseball fans everywhere the chance to own a piece of history.
