NFL Legend Tom Brady Drops NFT Collection On Autograph Marketplace
Tom Brady's first set of NFTs sold out in minutes. With how good he is at repeating success, the legendary NFL quarterback sees no reason to quit now.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers star on Monday announced a new NFT series, "Live Forever: The Tom Brady Origins Collection," on his NFT marketplace Autograph.
Among the set is the college résumé he intended to use if he didn't get drafted out of Michigan, items from his NFL combine and other representations of his early career moments.
"When we saw such incredible demand for Autograph's Preseason Access collection this summer, we knew the very next day that we wanted to start planning for what was next," Brady told Bloomberg about the launch.
"It's such an exciting time in both this industry and personally in my career, so we wanted to commemorate it in real-time as much as possible."
Early access begins Tuesday, Dec. 7 for any holder of Brady's first NFTs, with public access opening two days later on Dec. 9.
And considering Brady went on to win seven Super Bowls after being drafted No. 199 overall in the 2000 NFL Draft, it would be safe to bet there will be more iterations to come.
Brady launched Autograph in the spring of 2021, giving athletes and celebrities a platform to connect with their fans, profit off their likenesses, and offer personal experiences through NFTs. In July, Autograph announced strategic partnerships with DraftKings, Lionsgate, and athletes like Tiger Woods, Simone Biles, Derek Jeter, Wayne Gretzky, Tony Hawk, and Naomi Osaka.
The quarterback also is an avid crypto enthusiast, with he and supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen taking an equity stake in FTX in late June.
