They’re back! And this time they’re landing on all fours.
Let the final countdown begin: The fourth drop of four from the Cool Cats set touches down on Thursday, April 15 at 11 AM PDT. An NBA Top Shot nod to CryptoKitties, the Dapper Labs project that came before it, Cool Cats has become a defining common set in Series 2 with a drop per month since January and the much-anticipated LaMelo Ball Master Challenge.
Cool Cats Drop 4 shows love to NBA players who pounce on new opportunities: those who’ve found themselves in new homes in 2020-21 but haven’t missed a beat. Read on to see some of the players whose Moments you can get your paws on from this drop or read the full list now.
The Cool Cats Drop 4 Moments will each be numbered to 20,000 and all will be part of the requirements for a coveted Challenge Reward featuring ultimate offseason trade acquisition Russell Westbrook draining a game-winning triple for his new franchise.
In addition to the common Cool Cats Moments available in this drop, each collector will pull four Base Set Moments from Series 2.
Beyond general adherence to our standard terms and conditions, there are no collection requirements for participating in this pack drop.
A total of 92,500 packs will be made available to collectors in this pack drop. 7,500 packs will be withheld for community giveaways, customer service and promotional purposes.
Please note that while we offered Base Set “Rebound” packs for collectors in line who were unable to get a Holo Icon pack in Monday’s drop, there will be no Rebound packs available in this particular drop.

- Jrue Holiday of the Milwaukee Bucks leading the charge in transition, flagging down a pass and then casually flipping in an off-balance reverse.
