Giannis with the block heard ‘round the world. Jrue with what might have been the most important steal and audacious alley-oop pass in NBA Finals history. The 2021 NBA Finals were legendary.
And if the final legendary drop of Series 2 wasn’t enough, we’re proud to announce that we’re partnering with platinum-selling rapper Quavo from Migos to make this drop even more iconic, complementing the legendary packs with one of the most popular hits of the year.
For new collectors just getting into Top Shot, there’s an open lane to gain eligibility for this drop.
- Purchase your Starter Pack to get your collection started. This will get you 36 Collector Score points -- each of the three Moments in this pack will be worth 12 Collector Score points each.
- Complete Quavo’s Quest: Go to the Marketplace and collect two Moments from each of Quavo’s five favorite players (10 Moments total), and put them into a Showcase. Read for more details here.
- Boom. You’ll be eligible for the General Queue. Finishing Quavo’s Quest will get you +250 Collector Score points, helping you earn eligibility for the drop as long as you hold the Moments in your collection until after the drop finishes.
This is a drop you will not want to miss out on. Legendary Moments are already the most coveted collectors’ items on the platform. Legendary Moments from an iconic NBA Finals? Game over.
Will there be Drop Levels again?
Yes, here’s how it’s going to work. Three Queues at three different times on Thursday, July 29th (draft night, baby), serving three different tiers of collectors.
- General Queue - All collectors with Collector Scores of 400+ will have access to the General Queue. This Queue will have 120 packs available for purchase. As a reminder, purchasing your first pack and collecting Moments from Quavo’s favorite players will get you the needed 400+ Collector Score points to be eligible. This Queue will begin at 2:00 PM PDT — show up at least fifteen minutes early to secure your place in the Queue.
- Priority 2 Queue - Intermediate collectors with Collector Scores of 8,000+ (including drop bonuses) will have access to the Priority 2 Queue. There will be 320 packs available for this Queue. This Queue will begin at 12:00 PM PDT — show up at least fifteen minutes early to secure your place in the Queue.
- Priority Queue 1 - Established collectors with high Collector Scores of 13,000+ (including drop bonuses) will have access to the Priority 1 Queue. There are 640 packs reserved for this queue. This will be the best opportunity for any eligible collector to get a legendary pack. This Queue will begin at 10:00 AM PDT — show up at least fifteen minutes early to secure your place in the Queue.
ARE THERE ANY DROP BONUSES TO KNOW ABOUT?
We mentioned that collecting Moments from Quavo’s favorite players will give you a boost toward drop eligibility. To reiterate, if you collect two Moments from each of Quavo’s five favorite players (10 Moments total), and put them into a Showcase, you’ll receive a 250-point Collector Score boost.
In addition, being a member of the Nine Lives Lounge (i.e. someone who owns all 30 Cool Cats Moments) will get you guaranteed access to all three queues.
Last but not least, there is a Marketplace bonus that’ll reward collectors with 1 Collector Score point per dollar spent in the Marketplace on Moments that are still in the collector’s account. There’s a 7,500-point cap for this bonus.
