What Is NBA TopShot? I Finally Got A Pack!

NBA TopShot is the brainchild of the NBA and Dapper Labs. In short, TopShot is a marketplace for digital NFT collectibles in the form of NBA game highlights called "moments."

The best way to think about these "moments," is as digital trading cards. Just go to NBATopShot.com and you'll see what I mean.

There are sets and subsets (referred to as parallels - when we were little we called them "special cards"). There's Series 1 and Series 2, and debuts (useful for players who have been injured and haven't debuted in the league yet.

You can buy digital "packs," but only during "drops" which are freaking hard for busy working dads and husbands to make happen, but I finally got one!

There's also a marketplace where you can easily list your moments for sale.

In this video, I review my most recent pack, and analyze what I like and don't like about the moments I pulled.

I also show how easy it is to list your moments for sale in the marketplace.

    “Growing up I collected Pokemon cards and I’ll never forget the thrill of opening a pack, hoping for a holographic Charizard,” Xu told CBS Sports. “When I heard of NBA Top Shot in January, I bought a pack and the nostalgia immediately hit. As an NBA fan, owning specific moments from my favorite players was a concept that was so cool. I’ve been collecting moments ever since.”

      Very cool. Do you plan to buy any Magic Johnson moments coming up in June?
