Why NFT Trading Cards are the future of Collecting
I write this in an interesting predicament. I have two large bins of baseball cards that I had collected growing up and have nowhere to put them. There is enough of a sentimental attachment to them that I do not want to throw them out, so my plan at this point is to take a few of the cards that I like, keep them, and then give the rest of them away to a trading cards store.
In order to keep them, I would have to rent a storage unit or take up space in a closet that I don't really have.
I remember growing up and checking the prices of certain cards in a Beckett magazine I would get in the mail to see how the value changed, this was a monthly magazine. How times have changed.
Since I have been playing Splinterlands, I have discovered that their concept of collecting, playing, renting/leasing, and the marketplace is the future of card collecting (among other things). You can get real-time prices on your cards, collect as many as you want without having them take up space or collect dust, trade/sell/lease them with anyone in the world in seconds, and there's no risk of counterfeit cards or having them get stolen or damaged.
If you haven't checked out Splinterlands yet, please do so, they have been doing some very exciting things over the past few years and it's only going to get better!
