Run It Back 1986-87 is a Rare Set featuring 22 of the most important and culturally significant players from this season in NBA history. 

With 20 of these Moments now available in the Marketplace following last week’s pack drop, it’s time to debut a brand new type of challenge to unlock the final two unreleased Moments.

Starting today, you can earn Dennis Rodman’s Run It Back Moment, and later this week, Larry Bird is coming to Top Shot. 

Unlike other Active Challenges, participants will not need to use the Challenge Builder to qualify for the reward. Please take your time to lock the correct Moments and understand the instructions detailed below, where a snapshot will determine your eligibility. You cannot unlock a Moment once it is locked for 365 days from the date you locked it. 

Here’s what you need to know about successfully participating in Lockdown Challenges to earn the final 2 Moments in our Run It Back tribute to the 86-87 season.

Dennis Rodman’s Run It Back Lockdown Challenge Reward Moment

Dennis Rodman NBA Top Shot

Long before he became a five-time champion, Hall of Famer, and one of the best rebounders in league history, rookie Dennis Rodman gave the NBA a preview of things to come.

Showing early glimpses of his patented physicality and athleticism, Rodman’s Rare Rookie Top Shot Debut finds him picking off an errant Boston Celtics pass before starting a 2-on-1 fast break attack. 

The seven-time NBA All-Defensive First Team selection defers to a Detroit Pistons teammate, who quickly dishes a touch pass back to Rodman, who finishes the play in style with a backboard-shaking slam.

In addition to the steal, Rodman scored three points and blocked three shots in 18 minutes of action off the bench in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals on May 30, 1987. 

The bucket from Rodman is his final made basket of his rookie season, and now you can own it.
