Tom Brady will officially be in the nonfungible token business Wednesday when his debut collection is released through his Autograph platform.
DraftKings Marketplace, which houses Autograph, is now live with Brady's first preseason pass collection ready to drop. Along with the seven-time Super Bowl champion, the collection will feature notable athletes including Wayne Gretzky, Tony Hawk, Naomi Osaka, Derek Jeter and Tiger Woods.
"NFTs bring an entirely new dimension to the collector experience, and I cannot wait for people to discover and engage with this first ever drop of Autograph's official digital collectibles," Brady said in a press release. "We created Autograph as a way for fans and collectors to own a piece of iconic moments in sports and entertainment through authenticated and official digital collectibles and we are just getting started!"
Autograph will release Signature editions on Friday, featuring authentic digital signatures from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback. Gretzky will be the next athlete showcased in Signature editions with digital signatures from the NHL great set to be released in the coming weeks.
NFTs are digital items that appear only online and cannot be duplicated, meaning the owners of a specific NFT possess the only one in the world. Trading cards, video highlights, and unique digital artwork are examples of popular NFTs.
Fans interested in purchasing Brady's NFTs can do so by creating a DraftKings account and accessing the DraftKings Marketplace via desktop or mobile devices.
