[3/16 UPDATE]: The LeBron James Seeing Stars Challenge is coming soon and will require the other half of the Seeing Stars Moments from packs that weren't used in the Kevin Durant Challenge (i.e. not including Mike Conley)
The NBA is loaded with world-class athletes and while we see them on a nightly basis, there’s no better way to truly appreciate ‘em than when they’re under one roof at the annual All-Star Game. To mark the occasion, we’ve put together an all-new set called Seeing Stars, featuring 26 Series 2 Moments from the 2020-21 All-Stars’ regular season games.
Add a unique new Moment of your favorite player, collect your favorite teams or simply go all out in pursuit of the two forthcoming Challenge Rewards (Moments from All-Star Game captains LeBron James and Kevin Durant) once the teams have been drafted schoolyard-style.
The All-Star Game is about experimentation, so for this drop, we’re splitting the packs available into three drop times and releasing them over the course of Friday, March 5 and Saturday, March 6.
Choose the drop time that makes the most sense for you, then hop in a queue at your own pace. We want users to enjoy the pre-All-Star Game buzz, so rest assured that the Moments available across any of the three drop times are the same and collectors are only allowed to pick up one single pack over the course of the three drops, no matter when or how often they join a queue.
After our third and final drop on Saturday morning, you'll still be able to turn to the Marketplace to score these Moments for your collection.
UNIQUE TO THIS DROP:
The Seeing Stars set is filled to the brim with All-Star Moments, including:
- Steph Curry using his iconic handle to dance around a defender and create space for a stepback three.
- Jayson Tatum hitting the deck to recover a loose ball then finding his teammate with an assist from the floor.
- Anthony Davis spinning seamlessly around a low-post defender and capping off the play with a contested dunk.
- Pack Cost: $14
- Moments Per Pack: 3, one of which is a Seeing Stars Moment.
- Packs Per User: 1
A total of 183,258 packs will be available across the three pack drop times so pick the one that works best for you and get ready! An additional 20,364 packs will be reserved for giveaways, customer service, and promotional purposes and will not be available for sale.
- Friday, March 5th at 9 AM PST
- Friday, March 5th at 5 PM PST
- Saturday, March 6th at 10 AM PST
There are plenty of moves to be made if you hit the Marketplace right now. Complete the following active Challenges for ultra-rare, never-to-be-sold-in-packs Moments (and remember: the Cool Cats Master Challenge is waiting in the wings).
If you’re looking for something legendary, don’t sleep on the Holo Icon Challenge 2 Reward, featuring a James Harden between-the-legs dish in one of his first games with the Brooklyn Nets. And there’s still ample time to make a move for this massive, contested dunk from the Charlotte Hornets’ Terry Rozier in the Metallic Gold LE Challenge 19 Reward.
To complete a Challenge, you must acquire at least one of each of the required Moments. Hold on to them until the timer runs out, and we’ll send you your exclusive reward!
