There will be 13 NFTs in eBay’s initial collection. The company plans to launch additional projects throughout the year with OneOf, attempting to appeal to the “everyday fan” with prices starting at $10.
As for the Great One’s opinion on the upcoming collection, Gretzy has expressed excitement about the project, stating, “I’m honored to bring this collectible experience to my hockey fans who have followed my career for decades.”
Could this be the beginning of a successful NFT campaign as eBay looks for ways to push Amazon in the e-commerce industry? Only time will tell.
