The Pittsburgh Pirates NFT auction is one of three new additions to the MLB Stadium Series. A Major League Baseball NFT will release from each of the 30 teams signed up to the project, in a partnership between the league and Candy Digital. The auction began on Monday 23rd August and will run until Thursday 26th, 7PM EST.

In this case focused on the PNC Park stadium, the ground’s most iconic feature — a clear view of the gold towers and suspension cables of the Roberto Clemente Bridge — is a centrepiece to the artwork.
