PHOTO FILE, INC. and IMORTA HOLDINGS, LLC announce the upcoming release of officially licensed digital collectible NFTs of the legendary Ken Griffey, Jr., who played for the Seattle Mariners from 1989-1999 and 2009-2010. Combining the efforts of an artist world-renowned and the son of another professional baseball player, these one-of-a-kind digital collectibles are set to release in the coming weeks. Once purchased, collectors can trade or sell to others, with ownership permanently recorded on the blockchain. Each will be minted on OpenSea and offered on the IMORTA website (https://imorta.com). Photo File and IMORTA have collaborated with various stakeholders to create and sell officially licensed NFT collections.
To engage collectors of all skill levels, there will be several editions of Mr. Griffey, including 1 in 1, 1 in 10, 1 in 24, 1 in 100, and 1 in 1000.
Each limited edition artwork will feature various compositions by Mr. Griffey, often known as “Swingman” and “The Kid”, including animation and sound. Pricing starts at around US$60. In addition to the NFT, the winning bidder of the 1-on-1 edition will also receive an autographed authentic item such as a photo print or personalized sneakers.
The artist, Clark Mitchell, has created work for iconic brands including Star Wars, Disney, Lucas Arts, Coca-Cola, Time Magazine and ESPN Magazine – to name a few. Each piece was hand-drawn in digital ink and animated by Clark’s son, Cameron Mitchell. Cameron is also an artist and worked diligently to render the intricate animations for this project.

As co-founder of IMORTA, young Scott said, “Working with a star like Griffey is an honor, he’s been enthusiastic since day one. His vision and attention to detail is what ultimately led to the creation of these collectibles. »
A portion of Ken Griffey, Jr. NFT’s proceeds will be donated to MLB/MLBPA Youth Baseball Charities.
