Don't Call It A Rake Back 💸
The First Mint
Featuring MAJOR Top Shot Announcements, Challenge Corner, A Pack of Goats and More
GM, NBA Top Shot Squad — happy Saturday! It’s the weekend, and we’re all ready for the holidays. I’ll be heading to Florida for a week, and I can’t wait to disconnect for a bit, soak up some sun and try not to check in on Discord/NFTs (easier said than done)!
Let’s get into all the action from a PACKED few days of Top Shot:
The Road Ahead 🗺
We got a MASSIVE blog from Top Shot on Friday, with some highly anticipated news…

Yes, the Dapper credit we’ve all longed for is finally here, reportedly dropping some time this weekend:

Our thread on the highlights:
It was an exciting jolt of optimism to a community in need of some hope. Maybe this is the start of a new leaf for Top Shot in 2022? Let’s hope!
Challenge Corner ⚡️
We saw the completion of the Steph Curry 3PT Milestone Challenge on Friday, with 613 collectors completing the tough showcase. We also got a DM from the user who pulled the #1 serial, and they thanked cold brew for the good luck! It’s a lifestyle!
The Curry moment checked in at around $2900 on the Marketplace as of this writing — which seems low for how costly the challenge requirements were.
(Side Note — did we need a Metallic Silver? Will there be a Metallic Bronze? Metallic Gold just feels much cooler. It’s GOLDmember, not SILVERmember. Alas.)
Speaking of Metallic Sliver, Friday’s Flash Challenge introduced the second MSFE (gross), a Tyler Herro moment. Details here.
A Pack Of Goats 🐐
As I mentioned in the last newsletter, I was lucky enough to gain access to NFL All Day in the second round of emails. And on Friday, I was able to crack my first pack!
Unfortunately, the experience didn’t start off great:
But after heading over to my collection, I definitely wasn’t mad!
After the stink of Series 3 Top Shot packs, this was a VERY welcome surprise! But what’s better than two goats? THREE! Look at this pack:
Phil D had a great suggestion on Thursday’s Live Show — if you get a pack with the same three moments, it should be like hitting all BARS on a slot machine — give this man a jackpot!
