Running For Moments? 🏃♂️
The First Mint
Featuring A New Showcase Challenge, WNBA Moments, TFM Run Club and More
Good Morning, NBA Top Shot Team! Happy Thursday — and happy start of the NFL season! If anyone needs me this Sunday, I’ll be watching RedZone for approximately… All day.
It’s a bit of a quiet time in Top Shot — but still plenty to talk about. Let’s get into all the action from the last few days:
P.S. — It’s Thursday, which means we’re back in action tonight with The First Mint Live! LG, Phil D and other members of the NFT community will be chopping it up at 8 PM EST / 5 PM PST live on our Twitch channel. Don’t miss it!

Up first @KayNurse11 INSANE buzzer beater https://t.co/onK0md9CiL
As someone who got into Top Shot in Jan/Feb and not Series 1, it’s a cool experience to see each new WNBA player get their first moment — and the subsequent scarcity of only having a single one on the platform.
Room to Run 🏃♂️
We’ve had some fun community initiatives lately in our exclusive TFM discord for our NFT holders (including weekly NFT chats with Producer Quad, TFM fantasy leagues, and more). But September we started a particularly interesting challenge: The First Mint Run Club, created by our friend (and First Mint Fest Discord mod) JR Mouton.
Participants had to submit a moment as collateral, with 30 miles in 30 days as the end goal. Don’t finish? You lose the moment, which is raffled to those that completed the challenge. Now that is motivation.
We’ve already had several community members blow past the 30 mile mark, which is insane. I hate running. Like really HATE it.
Pre-covid, I played basketball 4-5 times a week, which accounted for 100 percent of my cardio. Running during a game? Awesome. Running aimlessly on a track or street? Gross.
But this has been a good kick in the ass to get moving — and to try to rescue my Julius Randle Cool Cats moment from the vault! Plus, we’ve got some good tunes to crank on the pavement:
If anyone needs a little pick-me-up playlist, this is what the @TheFirstMint Run Club is bumping this week as we enter week 2 of this month's challenge. Props to @GhostOfGregOden @LgDoucet and @ashcarter for their 🎶 submissions! https://t.co/hDBUOtmgQ5
If you aren’t already part of our Discord and the great community of TFM NFT holders, snag one on OpenSea.
