NBA Top Shot has teamed up with HOMAGE to create the Top Shot Debut T-Shirt and introduce our first limited-edition Merch drop. 

Since 2007, HOMAGE has captured iconic stories and nostalgic memories across NBA and sports history, using ultra-comfortable t-shirts as a canvas to pay tribute to the passion that fuels fandom. 

Today, we’re proud to share that 2,500 Top Shot collectors will receive our first t-shirt created with HOMAGE, inspired by our signature Top Shot Debut badge, for free. 

Anyone in the United States or Canada with a Top Shot account can enter the drawing for our free, limited-edition merch by completing the form on this page before 1pm ET on Monday, April 3, 2023.

New to Top Shot? Sent here by HOMAGE? Create your Top Shot account today to start your collection of officially licensed highlights across NBA history. With the NBA Playoffs around the corner, there’s no better time to join the fun. 

Shortly after the Top Shot Debut T-Shirt drawing closes, 2,500 collectors from the total pool of eligible collectors who completed the form will be selected to receive this shirt for free. No strings attached.


Once the winners have been selected, our friends at HOMAGE will manufacture and ship everyone’s shirts, delivered to your doorsteps by the end of April 2023, so you can rep Top Shot with pride wherever you go.

“Something as simple as a t-shirt can bring strangers together, who eventually discover just how much they have in common.” — Ryan Vesler, HOMAGE Founder 

Collecting has the power to connect people too, as proven by Top Shot’s passionate community for all 30 NBA teams, and we’re excited to bring one of our community’s most asked for items to life with the help of HOMAGE. 

Stay tuned for a first look at the t-shirt design later this March! While you wait to see what it’ll look like and if you’ll be a lucky winner, celebrate the history of the NBA and NBA Top Shot — and pay homage to the Top Shot Debut — with our new Moment Showdown Bracket!


From 2022-23’s opening tip to the final whistle, our partners at the NBPA have been hand-picking the 50 NBA players who define the season and the plays that highlight their greatness. These 50 players are being inducted into the Top Shot 50, a Legendary limited edition collection that celebrates their season — but their journey to this exclusive club had to start somewhere, and that first step is captured by their Top Shot Debut Moment.

The Debut Moment is every NBA player’s first collectible on Top Shot, signified by our signature Top Shot Debut Badge that serves as the foundation and design for this new, limited-edition t-shirt. To pay homage to the Top Shot Debut, we’ve hand-picked 64 of our favorite Top Shot Debut Moments from 64 past and present players, pitting them head-to-head in a fun bracket-style competition that our community can participate in over the coming days. 

  • Every current Top Shot 50 member’s Debut Moment is included, to signify the start of their journey toward this Legendary recognition. 
  • 12 Top Shot Debut Moments have been selected from the rookies in this year’s and previous season’s draft classes, reflecting the beginning of a career that may lead them towards the Top Shot 50 one day. 
  • The Top Shot Debuts of 22 NBA Legends have been selected, showcasing the greatness of retired Hall of Famers, All-Stars, and NBA Champions, who would surely have earned the recognition of Top Shot 50 from their peers if this club existed when they roamed the court. 
  • You can watch every Top Shot Debut in this tournament of 64 Moments in Top Shot's Marketplace.
