A fitting tribute to the sport of baseball, the NFTs will drop on October 28, 2022, the day of the first scheduled game of the 2022 World Series. Each of the 8,791 NFTs contains a unique still frame from Abbott & Costello’s famous six minute routine from a 1951 episode of The Colgate Comedy Hour.

The NFTs are presented by Power Up NFTs through exclusive license from the estates of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello via Unforgettable Licensing. “I’m delighted that the “Who’s on First” legacy lives on with over 50 million YouTube views,” expresses Chris Costello, daughter of Lou Costello, “And now, in addition to being enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame, the routine will be forever preserved as NFTs.” The NFTs also commemorate the upcoming 85th anniversary of the first national airing of “Who’s on First.”
