($MUDS) Mudrick Capital’s Topps Deal Is A Sensible SPAC with Cheap NFT Upside

What was your first experience with valuation and markets? Was it a college finance class? Perhaps if you're a millennial, the Global Financial Crisis aroused your interest. Some may have grown up in the shadow of the world's financial center, and this industry has been at the core of their parents’ or grandparents’ livelihood. However, suppose you think back as far as you can. In that case, there's probably a decent chance that the very first 'market activity,' and we're being philosophical, not literal,  you might have experienced was haggling over baseball cards.

Generations of people grew up coveting, trading, and purchasing baseball cards. They were initially given out accompanying cigarettes. When children began flocking smokers for the cards, a perennial trend was born. Topps Chewing Gum sold the first modern baseball cards with packs of gum in 1952. Their popularity grew with baseball and has since blossomed into a virtual alternative asset class.
