Legendary Mystery Box owners can claim signed Klay Thompson memorabilia.
Klay Thompson, the shooting guard of the current NBA champions, Golden State Warriors, has teamed up with the Binance NFT marketplace to launch the ‘Klay Thompson Grails‘ NFT collection. “I’m Pumped For This!” – the basketball player shared as he reposted a tweet by Amino.
While Binance NFT is responsible for hosting the launch, Amino Rewards is the company behind the Grails NFT collection. The initial phase of the NFT project went live October 18th, with an available 9,900 ‘Mystery Boxes‘, priced at $50 Binance USD (BUSD) each.
Grail NFT collection features highlights of Golden State’s 2022 NBA Championship Run
Sports NFT fans can expect to see memorabilia NFTs representing four out of the seven title runs made by San Francisco’s iconic team. For example, the Grail NFT collection will feature highlights from Golden State’s last championship run, as well as its thrilling NBA finals series versus the Celtics. Prior to the start of the 2022 playoffs, the Warriors launched a “Responsive” NFT Collection on FTX US that unlocked new benefits with each playoff round series win.
There are 4 types of NFTs in the Grails NFT collection. ‘Legendary’ NFTs are the most rare, and comes with a physical release in addition to the digital NFT. According to the description on Binance, “Legendary NFTs come with a physical signed sports memorabilia item”.
While these player-signed physical jerseys and basketballs are limited to the availability of the Legendary tier of NFTs, there are also rare-category NFTs, such as the ‘Klay Thompson Hall Of Fame’ and ‘All Star’ NFTs, which investors have a 19.5% probability of pulling out of the box.
Splash Brothers NFTs
Meanwhile, NFT enthusiasts on Twitter have an 80% chance to get ‘Klay Thompson Pro’ NFTs, which are likely to include super rare NFTs like the ‘Splash Brothers’, featuring Klay Thompson & Steph Curry netting natural three pointers.
Sports NFTs and Fan Tokens in Soccer
Besides basketball, sports and NFTs seem to be a good mix, as they have proven to be successful in the world of soccer. As the FIFA 2022 World Cup Qatar draws closer, it is no surprise that European soccer clubs such as Valencia CF, Real Madrid, Sevilla FC, FC Barcelona and most recently Real Sociedad, have launched their own soccer Fan Tokens. All of these clubs partnered with Chiliz to launch their Fan Token on the Socios fan engagement platform.
Ultimately, the integration of Web 3.0 ventures into European soccer seems like the next big thing, with even governing body FIFA launching its official FIFA+ NFT Marketplace. If this trend continues, sports NFT revenue is likely to double from the $1.4 billion raised in 2021.
