Tom Brady is set to enter the world of nonfungible tokens with his own autograph card. Lately, the non-fungible tokens have risen in popularity and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback will look to take part in it.

DraftKings Marketplace will be the home of Brady’s new autograph platform, which is now live. Autograph will be releasing Brady’s first preseason pass collection on Wednesday. The platform, which is co-chaired by Brady and entrepreneur Richard Rosenblatt, is giving similar treatment to NFTs from athletes such as Derek Jeter, Wayne Gretzky, Tony Hawk, and others.

“NFTs bring an entirely new dimension to the collector experience, and I cannot wait for people to discover and engage with this first-ever drop of Autograph’s official digital collectibles,” Brady said in a press release. ”We created Autograph as a way for fans and collectors to own a piece of iconic moments in sports and entertainment through authenticated and official digital collectibles, and we are just getting started!”

Created in 2014, NFTs serve as digital assets of unique items that are online and cannot be duplicated or copied. They are more or less digital trading cards, and they can be autographs, pieces of art, sound clips or video highlights. Because it’s completely digital, they don’t run the risk of damage and are easily authenticated.
