• Philadelphia 76ers Launch NFT Series on Crypto.com

  • The Philadelphia 76ers have announced a partnership with Crypto.com for their first-ever NFT series, Legacy, which will take place on “76ers Spirit Night” when the team will wear the City Edition uniforms to celebrate the first game played at the Spectrum on Oct. 18, 1967.

    Price drop event

    There will be 13 airdrops released, each specially designed to commemorate a significant moment in the history of the Spectrum era franchise. These NFTs were created and animated by renowned Brazilian artist Black Madre.The NFT series will include three rarity levels: an original series, three banner series and a 46 signature series, with a total of 50 collectibles per airdrop. The numbers were chosen strategically, with the number 3 representing the number of championships won by the team and the 46 representing 1946, the year the Syracuse Nationals were founded.

    The packages are randomly generated and will include a banner or autograph series of collectible artwork. Buyers will be able to virtually unwrap their NFTs after purchase to get an idea of the type of NFTs they hold.

    The original series will be a one-of-a-kind edition and will be auctioned within 48 hours of drop-off. The winner of the auction will get a real treat as they will receive exclusive fan access such as 76ers memorabilia, a gift bag with rare items, and the ultimate fan experience for two at the Philadelphia 76ers Training Complex in Camden. This experience includes a lunch prepared by the team’s chef, a special meet and greet, and an exclusive opportunity to watch the 76ers practice.

    Rewards and benefits for collectors

    Fans who collect all 13 banner series or autograph series NFT will get even more exciting 76ers-themed surprises. Those who hold all 13 banner series by May 1, 2022 will be able to redeem for an original Philadelphia Spectrum stadium, custom jerseys, personalized messages from 76ers legends, and VIP access to 76ers events. And those holding 13 Signature Series NFTs will be able to redeem an original Philadelphia Spectrum stadium piece and a custom jersey.

    “The NFTs are an exciting new collectible space through which we will pay tribute to great moments in franchise history from the Spectrum era of 76ers basketball,” said Chris Heck, president of commercial operations for the Philadelphia 76ers.” Through the Legacy NFT Collection, the past and present will come together through one-of-a-kind collectibles.
