Fans of Tom Brady are in for a treat, as the NFL star is set to debut a new NFT collection on the DraftKings marketplace.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is launching a new NFT collection, with memorabilia from the nascent stages of his footballing career. Earlier this year, Brady launched an NFT platform, Autograph, which features NFTs of tennis star Naomi Osaka, hockey player Wayne Gretzky, golfer Tiger Woods, famed skateboarder Tony Hawk, and others, including his Tampa Bay teammate, Rob Gronkowski.
When And How Will The NFTs Be Available?
Brady’s initial NFT collection sold like hotcakes, and he is offering current NFT holders early access to the new “Live Forever: The Tom Brady Origins Collection,” which features 16,600 collectibles from Brady’s early years in the NFL. Holders of a Preseason Access Pass will be able to start collecting on Dec. 7, 2021, at 5 pm ET, and the public drop will be open from Dec.9, while stocks last. The Preseason Access Passes are NFTs from the first Tom Brady Autograph drop. There is a mystery container available for purchase on DraftKings for holders of the preseason pass. The mystery boxes could contain one of the following: Brady’s College Resume, Rookie Draft Card, Combine Stopwatch, Combine Cleats, Combine Jersey. The NFL Scout Combine is an annual event in February, where prospective NFT talents are invited to undergo physical and mental tests in front of NFL management and coaching personnel, and Brady was among the last to be selected in the 2000 edition.
The public will be given access to the drop on Dec. 9, 2021. The rarities of each of these collectibles can fall under the categories of Carbon, Platinum, Emerald, Sapphire, and Ruby. If an individual collects five items with the same rarity by the “Activation Deadline,” they will receive an Immortal Statue in that rarity. Users will be able to open their mystery boxes from the Reveal Date onward, which is Dec. 14, 2021.
Tom Brady’s NFT Appetite Grows
Brady’s NFT platform has inked deals with entertainment giant Lionsgate and DraftKings, an online sports betting platform. Brady has been an avid supporter of NFTs and plans on giving them away as gifts during the 2021 holiday season. After seeing the success of the first NFT drop, Brady and his team at Autograph began planning the next one almost immediately. Brady and his wife, Gisele Bundchen, own equity in Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX in a deal reached earlier this year, which subsequently saw the superstar couple appear in an FTX commercial.
