This set marks GPK’s return to the digital NFT world after a long absence. The set is being released on Topps new ToppsNFTs.com platform. Collectors who were familiar with Topps’ previously released GPK NFTs on the WAX Blockchain will want to take note of the differences between the two platforms. ToppsNFTs.com is on the Avalanche Blockchain. Topps has built their own closed platform and marketplace to house all their NFTs. This means collectors no longer have to purchase tokens to buy NFTs. All sales of packs and individual cards are done via credit card. Since the new platform is a closed system, many of the features found on WAX do not yet exists on ToppsNFTs.com. NFTs can only be bought and sold on the new website. Minimum listing price per NFT is $2. There is no wallet access, therefore NFTs can not be traded. NFTs also can’t be moved off of the platform. Other GPK NFTs on the WAX Blockchain also can not be moved onto the new platform. International withdrawal is in its infancy, and has only launched for a couple of countries. Topps has also had numerous growing pains with errors and uptime on their website. Topps has promised many of these features, with updated timelines well into 2023-2024.
Collectors who don’t already have an account setup will want to make sure they complete some steps ahead of time. They should go to ToppsNFTs.com and create a new account. In order to buy and sell NFTs on the platform, collectors will need to verify their identity on the new account within the account settings. They can also add a credit card for payments and bank information for withdrawals.
The 2022 GPK Non-Flushable Tokens NFT Collection is set to launch on 11/17/22 at 1:00 PM EST. The complete checklist, including pictures of all the base cards, can be found here. Below are some examples of the animations and press release from Topps for the release.
