- 2022 MLB Opening Day Pin
- Play of the Day
- Leadoff Series reminders
It's finally here, Happy Opening Day! Whether you’re at a game in person, watching on TV or participating on our MLB marketplace, we hope your season starts off right.
There is a lot to look forward to this season. You’ll see new faces moving to new cities and new teams like Freddie Freeman and the Dodgers; old faces coming home to old teams like Albert Pujols returning to St. Louis. We’ll even see the start of a new chapter in Cleveland as the Guardians take the field for the first time in franchise history. Records will be made and broken, Miguel Cabrera will have his 3000th hit and Shohei Ohtani could have the most wins above replacement (WAR) in a regular season. 2022 City Connect jerseys will be coming and offering never before seen swag to more cities across the league.
To stay on par with MLB, Candy has a range of products to match the hype and excitement. To start off, there is a special surprise for all those who purchased a Stadium Series NFT! Those that own a Stadium Series, will be airdropped a surprise Opening Day Pin NFT. Check your collection if you are a Stadium Series collector.
The pin will commemorate Opening Day 2022 and our first collectible to start a new season. You will find it airdropped into your Candy account on April 7th. If you do not have a Candy account, but own a Stadium Series NFT, you will have the chance to receive your special edition NFT on April 19th once your account is created. Check your email for instructions.
