And to celebrate an incredible rookie class, featuring several can’t-miss stars, we’re offering collectors two different Pack offerings to get in on the action and latch onto a rookie’s bandwagon early.
After months of hype, excitement, and speculation, the time has finally come. Bring on the rookies!
Let’s dive right in:
- a performer or act that is the star attraction..
Early in this NBA season, it’s become clear there are six distinct headliners in this rookie class. Six can’t-miss prospects, each with a reasonable claim to being worthy of the number one overall pick in a typical draft class.
To capture the unique depth and special talents at the top of this rookie class, we’ll be offering collectors Rookie Debut: Headliner Packs.
Each of these $79 Packs will be loaded with a guaranteed Rookie Debut Moment from one of the following headliners, including:
- Victor Wembanyama’s first career bucket on a silky smooth three-pointer.
- Chet Holmgren hitting his first shot with an impressive baseline turnaround jumper
- Brandon Miller with an audacious fourth-quarter stepback three-pointer in his first game
- Scoot Henderson sinking a tough floater to record the first basket of his career
- Amen Thompson showing glimpses of the future with an impressive burst and dunk at the rim
- Ausar Thompson rejecting all shots in his periphery with emphatic disdain
There’s an opportunity to reserve a Pack right now with 6,000 Packs available to all collectors with a Top Shot Score of 25,000 or higher. This reservation window will close on Tuesday, November 7th at 1 PM ET.
After the reservation, we’ll have 4,890 additional Packs available across Web & App (2,445 on each) on November 7th at 3 PM ET with a live Queue.
These Packs will offer the single best chance (16%) for collectors to pull a Victor Wembanyama Moment all season, and offer the same chance for all six headline rookies.
Beyond the $79 offering that comes with a guaranteed headliner in each Pack, we’ll also be offering $9 Headliner Rips.
Each $9 Headliner Rip will contain 5 Moments, consisting of Base Set Moments and a 10% chance of pulling a Rookie Debut from one of the six headliners.
In-App: 8,975 Packs
Web: 8,975 Packs
