Golden State Warriors Announce First Ever NFT Collection
The Golden State Warriors are reaching new levels with their merchandise.
The team announced on Tuesday that they will be releasing a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) Collection, becoming the first team in all professional sports to do so. The collection celebrates the team’s six NBA championships, and the digital items, which showcase some of the most famous games in Warriors history, will be sold by auction. A portion of the revenue collected from the NFT Collection will go to the Warriors Community Foundation, which has provided funding for educational equality since its founding in 2012.
The auction includes a number of items in the main collection as well as some 1-of-1 pieces. Both forms of NFTs can currently be bid on, with the main collection auction ending on Saturday, May, 1 at 8 pm PDT and the 1-of-1 auctions ending on Sunday, May 2 at 8 pm PDT.
Two of the most coveted collections are the Warriors Championship Ring NFTs and the Commemorative Ticket Stub NFTs. The Warriors Championship Ring NFT displays the team’s six NBA Championship Rings, which date from 1947-2018, as well as a 1-of-1 Warriors Six-Time NBA Champion Ring, which combines all six championships. The Warriors Commemorative Ticket Stub NFTs will depict some of the most memorable moments in franchise history, including “The First Ever NBA Championship (Game 5, 1947),” “1956 NBA Championship (NBA Finals Game 5)” and more. All items will be sold to the highest bidder, so if interested, be sure to check out these NFTs and place a bid.
