A Hidden LeBron Moment 🔎
The First Mint
Featuring WNBA Market Movers, Exploring The Archive, Challenge Corner, Mitchell Partnership & More
GM, NBA Top Shot Squad! Happy Thursday — Hope you had some luck in the queue over the past few days (from both the WNBA Legendary drop and the Candy MLB Icons packs)!
I struck out on both, unfortunately. But as I was on the fence about the WNBA legendaries at that price point, Top Shot saved me from myself, so not too upset there! We’ve got several drops today, so let’s get into all the action:
P.S. — Thursday means we’ve got The First Mint Live Show tonight! We’ve got a great group joining us for this one, including the team behind Doodles (one of the hottest NFT projects out there right now), Rob Richardson from Disrupt Art, and several members from the NBA Top Shot community! See you at 5 PM PT on our Twitch channel.
Market Movers 📉
Wondering how the market looks after the big WNBA legendary drop on Tuesday? We hit on some of the bigger sales a few hours post-drop, and a day later the low ask values of the top moments have held pretty steady.
Data via Own The Moment:
While those who hit on the top-tier Legendary options had some nice ROI, it would seem that the influx of more high-end WNBA moments (both legendary and more RIB) resulted in a massive drop for the rare set:
Exploring The Archive 📚
We’ve got the second drop of the Archive Set coming TODAY, with some fun new throwback players hitting the platform for the first time:

And if you happen to pull a Mario Chalmers moment and aren’t happy, wait until the end and maybe it’ll change your mind:

Challenge Corner 🏆
We are nearing the end of the Klay Thompson Vintage Vibes Showcase Challenge, with the deadline hitting Friday at 10 AM PT. Over 8,500 collectors have completed the challenge as of this writing.
Additionally, the WNBA RIB Showcase dropped on Tuesday, with New York Liberty legend Teresa Weatherspoon as the reward.
What you’ll need:

Marketing Machine 🤷♂️
After questioning the repeated tweets from NBA rookies regarding Top Shot, I’d be remiss if i didn’t mention this Davion Mitchell news:
Davion Mitchell is partnering with @nbatopshot and fans will get to vote on his first Top Shot moment. https://t.co/IRPv0zgrzE
See, now this is much better! Maybe I judged too early, or maybe the initial execution was off — but getting the player directly involved in the platform and bringing him closer to fans is a huge W. It’ll be interesting to see if the other rookies (Mobley, Suggs) have a similar partnership coming down the road. Touche, Top Shot!
