Summer League’s here! And we’re breaking new ground in Vegas, with 1 in-arena Moment each day (Aug 8-10) from our new Fandom tier, a Top Shot section, contest winners in the house and more. Stay tuned for to our social & blog for each day's Featured Game, where the Moment will come from, and find key links below.


Just days after the NBA Draft, the game’s next generation of stars will be in Las Vegas for a summer hoops showdown. 

But the players aren’t the only ones headed to Vegas.

We’re teaming up with the NBA to have Top Shot show out in a MAJOR way at NBA Summer League.


How the in-arena Moments work

For the first time EVER, NBA Top Shot fans will have the ability purchase a Moment in-arena, and receive a Moment from a game they saw in-person.

Featuring 1 great play per day from Summer League games on Aug. 8, 9, and 10, these Moments aren’t just the debut of our Summer of ‘21 Set -- they’ll also be the first Moments from our new Fandom tier

Living between common and rare, the Fandom tier is designed to meet dynamic demand -- driven by the love of the game and Top Shot events. 


These in-arena Moments will be available for pre-purchase for $5 each at the NBA Top Shot Kiosk by Section 111 of the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas (Aug. 8, Aug. 9 and Aug. 10), and will be minted based on the number of arena purchases on game day with a minimum Edition Size of 1,000.

Fans will receive a random serial of the Moment per purchase, and will be able to purchase up to 10 Moments per day. To make a purchase for the day’s Moment, fans will need to come back to the Top Shot Kiosk each day. These Moments will be delivered to collector accounts as quickly as possible, potentially even the following day.

We’ll let you know the games these Moments will be from as we get closer, so you can plan to be there to witness your Moment live as it happens.

The Summer of ‘21 set will feature five Moments, three that will be available for pre-order in person at NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, one as a Challenge Reward, and another available as a Quest prize. Note that the players featured in these Moments will not be incoming rookies, to preserve their Top Shot debuts for regular-season NBA action.

We are also going to launch limited edition merchandise available for collectors on the ground in Las Vegas to commemorate the launch of the Summer 2021 series.



Note: The 8 winners have been announced!

With the NBA Playoffs now over and a new NBA Champion crowned, we wanted to reward some of our most committed NBA Playoff Challenge collectors. Below, find a breakdown of how we are selecting the 8 winners and how to know if you qualified.

The NBA Top Shot team took a snapshot on Monday, August 2nd at 9:15 am PDT. Collectors are able to have earned entries into the drawing by meeting the following criteria.

  • 1 entry for every 2021 NBA Playoffs common challenge completion
  • 1 entry for every 2021 NBA Playoffs common challenge reward held at time of the snapshot
  • 5 entries for every And Then There Were Four challenge completion
  • 5 entries for every And Then There Were Four challenge reward held at the time of the snapshot
  • 1 entry for every 10 2021 NBA Playoff commons held at the time of the snapshot (rounded down)

Note, that there is no way for you to improve your odds -- for this one, we want to reward collectors who’ve been completing challenges throughout the NBA Playoffs. 

So get ready for all the great Summer League Action coming to Top Shot, be sure to start your collection if you haven’t done so, and if you are headed to Vegas for some hoops action, we will see you there!
