A new player in the fantasy baseball realm — as well as the baseball card world — is here.
It’s Honus Bonus Fantasy Baseball and it’s a combination of fantasy play with more than $6,200 in cash prizes up for grabs and collecting where every single card has a scratch-off code for the player to enter your lineup.
It also presents a collecting challenge — do you scratch the card or keep it mint?
The MLBPA has approved a licensing deal for a new fantasy baseball game to arrive this spring that will utilize packs of cards as part of the action.
It’s Honus Bonus Fantasy Baseball and it’s being launched by Rittenhouse Archives president Steve Charendoff, who is also at the helm of Honus Bonus Partners.
“As a lifelong baseball card collector and long-time fantasy game player, it made perfect sense to combine these two overlapping passions in this unique series of cards,” Charendoff said in a prepared release. “We’re extremely pleased to partner with the MLBPA, particularly at this time when so many of its players are enjoying unprecedented popularity.”
