Turning Up The Heat In Top Shot 🔥
The First Mint
Featuring NFT LA, A Spicy Pack Drop, April Incoming, Challenge Corner & More
Good Morning, NFT Fam! Hope you’ve had a great week — and a shout out to those out in California for NFT LA (keep your eyes peeled for LG and Ash from the TFM squad!). Sounds like some… interesting things have been going on:
The NFT LA Conference is getting wild😱 Some would even say hard to believe.
Which of these did NOT happen today?🌞
The Dapper Labs squad has also descended on LA, with a group photo turning into a hilarious meme competition of throwing Content Lead Jacob Eisenberg (shout out to @Clegainz & @ActuallyJebBush for some hilarious content in the thread). My brain went to the same place as Veerman here:
@Jayne @Eisenberg43 @juanalexdejesus @roham @NateJNesbitt @dbfeld @arthcmr Jacob with his best Kawhi impression, waiting for that Ja crafting challenge to drop. https://t.co/Yu4vxddL57
Another good one:
@thespinecharmer @twistedmetal333 @intangible_eth @ActuallyJebBush @Jayne @Eisenberg43 @juanalexdejesus @roham @NateJNesbitt @dbfeld @arthcmr You may be able to find Waldo, but can you find @Eisenberg43? 🕵️♂️ https://t.co/2vvjiIF7cK
Let’s get into all the action from the last few days:
HRO x TFM 🦸♂️
The DC Hybrid NFT Trading Card drop is coming soon, and TFM is ready to see your collections. We’ll be covering the drop live on Twitter Spaces on March 31st, so make sure to join us and the Hro/Warner Bros teams for a front row seat to a whole lot of epic!
You’re about to find out how truly nerdy LG can get about Batman… real quick. Although the physical card pre-sale has sold out, stay tuned in the Hro Discord server for more information leading up to the digital drop.
A Spicy Thursday🌶
We’ve got a hot one today, with the ‘Extra Spice’ pack drop going live at 12 PM PST. Details:
📦TOP SHOT DROP / March 31📦
The "Extra Spice" set, feat. hilarious celebrations and wild plays🏀
🌶️1x Spice / 3x Commons
🪂3x for NLL
🪂1x for Early Adopters/Cali vs NY
It’ll be exciting to see the price action on this set, with the allure of new content and the lower-minted commons at an affordable price. The marketing for Extra Spice has been…spicy! This video got me pretty hyped up, with some awesome highlights (and celebrations/reactions) in the mix:

< rubs eyes >

A Look At April 📆
With the calendar about to turn over and the NBA Playoffs around the corner, the excitement is starting to build for what we could see from Top Shot in the postseason.
In the most recent TS newsletter, we got a solid roadmap of what to expect soon:
It sounds like we’ll be getting a bunch of Top Shot IRL action for fans in the playoffs, which are always an outstanding experience. And a ‘Refer A Friend Program’ is something that is a long overdue but welcome addition.
The Top Shot class of Jan/Feb 2021 could use some retroactive points for all of the people we brought into the bloodshed! (This is a joke, I don’t actually expect this)
