Another day, another big name NFT drive. This time it’s superstar club-swinger Tiger Woods, who is commemorating his finest moments with a 10,000 item NFT collection. Fans, collectors and investors will be able to buy the assets through Autograph, a high profile NFT platform co-founded by Tom Brady, that appears tilted towards sports.
What is the Tiger Woods NFT Collection About?
The NFT collection features images from throughout Tiger Woods’ dazzling career, issued at different price points. 9,700 items will cost from $12 to $100. The remaining 300 will go from $250 up to $1,500, and will be digitally signed by Woods.
Considering this year’s soaring NFT prices, Tiger Woods’ terms look decidedly accessible, and it’s not unlikely that resale values will climb.
In a statement, he said of the project,
“The intersection of sports and technology is such an interesting space to me. I’m thrilled to partner with Autograph as they lead the charge by ushering a new era of digital collecting.”
Sport and NFTs: an Ideal Match
Tiger Woods is not the first sporting star to release an NFT collection via the Autograph marketplace. They already showcase some huge names from the world of sports, such as Naomi Osaka, Tony Hawk, and Wayne Gretzky. Unsurprisingly, some of these athletes have already been getting in on the NFT game.
Actually, Osaka dropped a six-piece collection in April, in collaboration with her sister, which sold for nearly $600,000. Then in August, she released her ‘Preseason Access’ collection, this time on Autograph.
And back in March, when Tony Hawk performed his final ever ollie 540, he commemorated the occasion by putting it on the blockchain.
Sporting memories are a historical chain of frozen moments, with emotion trapped inside each one. Perhaps athletics and NFTs are an ideal match.
