Yes, now there is a little Mark Zuckerberg NFT playing baseball

This nostalgic old photo may soon be worth a fortune. Yesterday Mark Zuckerberg unveiled one of his old Little League Baseball membership cards. Above, the little 8-year-old man who would become a billionaire proudly holds his club, wearing a slightly oversized cap. Nostalgia bonus point: his signature in handwritten letters, square, adorns the bottom right of the card.

What the young player still didn’t know when he was photographed was that one day he would turn … into an NFT. Because yes, even if Mark loves being cool on social media, we are not fooled: this memory was not unmasked by chance, on a whim after an impromptu unpacking of the cardboard. Indeed, as explained BuzzFeedZuckerberg takes the opportunity to promote the new NFT sharing feature on Instagram.

“To honor the expansion of NFT’s digital collection into one hundred other countries on Instagram and the launch of new integrations with Coinbase and Dapper, I am sharing this future NFT, an old Little League Baseball card, that someone recently found and sent to me … “ Marco writes.

At the time, the young Yankees fan had handed his card over to his vacation monitor, which had carefully guarded it. Good guess, given that today he is auctioning the physical card, and its digital version in blockchain. The functionality to expose NFTs on Instagram was presented by Meta on May 10th.

Only available in the United States when it launched, it is now accessible in Africa, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, and America. It allows you to link your digital wallet (Rainbow, MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Coinbase Wallet and soon Dapper Wallet) to Instagram.

Once published, the NFT will automatically show the creators and collectors tag. For now, it supports Ethereum, Polygon, and Flow.
