To pay tribute to perhaps the greatest point guard of all time, NBA top shot is releasing an NFT collection based on Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson. By doing so, the most pivotal and historic plays of the 5x NBA Champion, 3x Finals MVP, 3x NBA MVP, and 12x NBA All-Star will be recorded on the blockchain forever.
The collection, called ”The Anthology: Magic Johnson,” is scheduled for launch on the NBA Top Shot platform on June 7, where 1600 NFT packets they will be available to pick up for $399 each. Inside each pack will be 1 Moment NFT from the Rare or Legendary tiers, with Rare tier NFTs representing the ‘Platter Pass’ and ‘Game Winner vs. Johnson’s Celtics’ (during the 1987-88 season), while the Legendary-level NFTs represent his ‘Rookie Start at Center in the Finals’ in the 1979-80 season, as well as his ‘Around the Body Pass’ in 1984-85.
Despite there apparently being a large number of packs up for grabs, a whopping 1,200 of the packs will be airdropped to users with a top shot score of at least 150,000 (i.e. by placing them in a ‘priority queue’), which means there will only be 400 packages available for free in the ‘general queue’ (which do not require an NBA Top Shot score to purchase).
in carrying Twitter To convey his enthusiasm for the fall, Johnson had this to say: “I’m so excited to partner with @nbatopshot to release my first NFTs and bring some of my favorite moments from my career to fans around the world. Fans get to see just a few of my favorite plays from my career!
