The history-making basketball magazine SLAM is entering its second round of partnership with Tom Brady's NFT platform Autograph for the launch of the thematic NFT drop.
Founded in 1994, SLAM has become the symbol of NBA classics, largely due to its covers featuring basketball icons and historic in-game moments. The covers are the cultural touchstones that fans remember, boast of, and collect. Becoming a cover face of SLAM is a cherished dream of any basketball player and team, as it is the best proof of their skills and significance for the whole industry.
Thus, SLAM covers released starting from the late '90s up to 2010, have been digitized to bring the basketball superstars in their moments of fame to web3. There are only six digital covers, available both in Standard, as the magazines were printed, and limited Metal Editions with custom lettering. Skillfully processed by the Autograph designers, this exclusive limited-edition drop, with 12 NFTs in total, will be dropping in blind packs. The collectibles depict the covers starring:
Each highly-detailed NFT comes paired with real-life exclusive utility. Thus, each holder will benefit from a 25% discount on all products available via the Slam Goods merch website. The discount code will become available for NFT holders on December 17th, which is the date of the drop's deadline.
Further, according to Autograph, holders of the Big Men Challenge set, which consists of metal editions featuring Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki, and Tim Duncan covers or Guard Challenge set, including metal covers starring Ray Allen, Steve Nash, Allen Iverson, at the Activation Deadline will receive a physical metal edition of a SLAM cover commemorating the Top 75 NBA teams of all time.
The SLAM and Autograph's NFT collectibles will be exclusively available on the DraftKings marketplace for $15 USD for Slam logo pass NFT holders and $35 for the public mint.
