This summer, Rawlings Sporting Goods Company, Inc. is bringing something new to the sports community. Rawlings is debuting physical rare baseball gloves with NFTs attached to each of them.
In August 2022, Rawlings PRIMUS NFT and glove collectible will available for mint for baseball fans.
Rawlings PRIMUS NFT and Glove Collectible
As a baseball fan, you might have always wanted to own a baseball glove made out of high-quality and fine stitching with long-term usage.
Rawlings, having decades of history in baseball goods production, is the perfect brand that is taking glove collecting to the next level by including an NFT with it as well.
According to the official press release, Rawlings PRIMUS NFT will release 461 physical gloves distributed in four tiers of rarity, each having a non-fungible token attached to it. The tiers are divided as follows:
- Pro Tier: 300 NFTs of ultra-premium steer hide glove for $500 USD in ETH
- Gold Tier: 150 NFTs of ultra-luxurious kip leather glove for $750 USD in ETH
- Platinum tier: 10 NFTs of specially designed glove for $1,500 USD in ETH
- 1-of-1 glove: A single edition of a glove designed and worn by NY Mets’ Francisco Lindor will go for auction.
The buyers will first buy a PRIMUS NFT on the marketplace and then exchange it for physical gloves from the official store. “Each glove has the NFT edition number stamped on it and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity too,” the website reads.
The best thing about these gloves is they are limited edition one-of-a-kind collectibles. This means they will never be reproduced by the production company except for the PRIMUS NFT collection.
The NFT holders will also receive future benefits such as new projects, events, early access to NFTs, and an exclusive invite to the Discord community.
“It’s been an exciting journey finding an opportunity to tie together the digital and physical worlds we live in,” says, Dylan Kavanagh, VP of digital marketing for Rawlings. “This launch also enables us to provide more tangibility and authentication for what we already know is an expansive glove collecting market while opening a new platform for conversation and community with our Rawlings Discord server.”
The NFT version of the gloves will also include an augmented reality Quicklook file with a QR scan code to experience your NFT in 3D.

Rawlings will first open Allowlist open for people who join the Discord server in July 2022. The Allowlist members will be able to participate in a pre-mint a week before the official public sale in late August.
After the sale is over, Rawlings will release an official date for glove claiming for NFT holders and ship the physical gloves between September and November 2022.
