eBay Launching NFT Collection

eBay is finally entering the metaverse. The multinational e-commerce company announced its partnership with OneOf, Sports Illustrated and Wayne Gretzy to launch an NFT collection featuring the legendary hockey player earlier today.

See eBay’s official announcement, which gives a sneak peak of the Gretzky collectibles, below:

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.

Stay tuned for updates as more details are revealed about this project.
