By Taruka Srivastav | March 10, 2021
Some of the greatest players in the history of LaLiga, as well as the league’s current superstars and future stars, are the subjects of Panini America’s next Blockchain venture, 2021 LaLiga Prizm Blockchain, which launched on March 1.
This release marks the first time that Panini America has incorporated an entire football league into the Blockchain environment.
2021 LaLiga Prizm Blockchain includes 140 base cards (all 1/1s and printed using Prizm’s popular Gold Vinyl parallel) incorporating at least seven players from all 20 LaLiga Santander clubs. In addition, there are an additional 26 autograph cards featuring current LaLiga stars and all-time legends. The Week 1 lineup was headlined by autographs of Joao Felix, Mario Kempes and Javier Mascherano and 1/1 gems of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Karim Benzema.
Collectors who purchase the 2021 LaLiga Prizm Blockchain digital card on the Panini Blockchain site entitles the buyer to receive the physical version of the card free with the purchase. Cards are being released over the course of seven weeks through the Panini Blockchain site or by using the Panini Direct app. The cards are being sold in a Dutch Auction format with prices dropping incrementally until the card is sold.
By using the Panini Blockchain site, collectors are able to maintain ownership of their Blockchain digital cards and also have the ability to auction the cards securely on the Panini Blockchain to other buyers. In addition, collectors can search the Panini Blockchain site for other auctions. In the near future, the Panini Blockchain site will offer additional functionality such as personal galleries, ownership histories for individual cards and more.
