Magic On The Mic 🎤
Featuring A Pack Post-Mortem, Magic on the Mic, NFL All Day Burning & More
Good Morning, NFT Squad! Cheers to the weekend! Hope you had an amazing week, and had some luck in the queues yesterday across the many drops we saw on both NBA Top Shot and NFL All Day!
Let’s get into all the action from the last few days:
Pack Post-Mortem 📦
We had a busy day of drops in the NBA Top Shot world on Friday, with the ‘And Then There Were 4’ Rare Conference Finals packs releasing along with their common counterparts.
The Rare drop seemed to be a winner for most collectors, with 7 of the 8 possible moments coming in at over the $89 pack price on the market (sorry, Jalen Brunson - you deserve better!). Leading the pack are Steph Curry ($269 low ask) and Luka Doncic ($189 low ask).
I hopped in the queue for the first time in a while, and have to tip my cap — that thing was FLYING. Such a quicker experience than just a few months ago!
Also dropping on Friday was the much-anticipated Top Shot Twitter Spaces with Magic Johnson, ahead of his debut on the platform in packs next week. The Spaces had some really cool moments, with interesting breakdowns of the incoming moments and a lot of love for the platform.
However, it would appear Magic has some… studying to do when it comes to the players currently with moments on Top Shot:
Come on, Magic — have you ever visited the website?
All Day Innovations 🏈
Burning moments has come to the NFL All Day platform, with the new feature kicked off during yesterday’s drop:
The blog announcement on Thursday was full of exciting tidbits — and judging by the movement in the marketplace (and general sentiment on Twitter), the community approves of the announcement:
Hopefully these features are ones we’ll see cross over to NBA Top Shot in the near future as well. But it’s an encouraging sign from the All Day team, with changes being made that are clearly informed from TS learnings.
