Collectors rejoice: we’re massively upgrading rookie players’ Moments on NBA Top Shot in the near future.
As any sports collector knows, there’s something special about snagging a rookie collectible before that player ascends to stardom. As a result, we’re working hard in the lab to find ways to upgrade our rookie Moments to make them more identifiable and iconic long-term. This feature is coming soon.
Take note, cause rookie Moments on NBA Top Shot will soon have badges that’ll carry up to three distinguishing factors:
If so, this Moment will be identified with a rookie badge.
If so, this Moment can carry extra value for collectors long-term and will have a little something extra on their rookie badge.
For example, with our Run It Back packs, we minted Moments from players who were rookies in the 2013-14 season like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Victor Oladipo. These Moments will receive a rookie badge, but won’t be distinguished as Rookie Mints, because they were minted years after their rookie season. LaMelo Ball and Tyrese Haliburton Moments from this season, however, will be distinguished as Rookie Mints because they were minted during the player’s rookie season. Same goes for Zion Williamson and Ja Morant Moments from last season.
Hope this information helps you as you continue to grow your collections. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon. Until then, happy collecting!
