CryptoNewsBreaks – WAX Blockchain Collaborates to Celebrate Babe Ruth, Immortalize Unforgettable Moment in NFT Series

World-renowned artist William Quigley and his partner Seth Lamburn, aka SkrapperPunk, have collaborated with the Worldwide Asset eXchange (“WAX”) to bring the legendary baseball phenom Babe Ruth back to life in the emotion-evoking NFT collection “Skrapper Legends.” According to the update, the limited collection features 714 NFT packs that interpret the famed 1948 Pulitzer Prize-winning photo “The Babe Bows Out” through the lens of contemporary art. The official NFT artwork was rendered from a detail of “Baseball,” a larger painting commissioned in 1998 by LA-based sports memorabilia dealer Dave Levin of GFG. The deal struck by the duo saw Quigley remaster the work for $18,000 in trading cards. “WAX is proud to partner with William Quigley to further celebrate and solidify Babe Ruth’s legacy,” said William E. Quigley, co-founder of WAX. “By immortalizing this unforgettable moment in sports history, it brings together three powerhouses that are so relevant to today — crypto, art and sports for an unforgettable NFT experience.”
