The 11th NFT product called “Superpack ” will feature all the football stars with an autographed digital card. It will be limited to only 999 and will come in three color variations of gold, copper, and steel. Each color will have 333 pieces. Each unit of Superpack will be sold for $20,000. Five of the Superpack buyers will receive autographed jerseys from all the players in the NFT collection. Three of the Superpack buyers will also meet three of the players virtually.
The specially produced NFT collection is inspired by traditional baseball cards as a digital, animated collectible that highlights notable player stats accompanied with unique graphics, player footage, and a personal video interview.
The “Individual Football Star Pack”
Aside from the Superpack, each of the footballers will have their NFTs sold as an Individual Football Star Pack with gold, copper, and steel as thematic color valuation. This will be a 111 pack per color, which means this will amount to 333 packs per player. Five buyers will receive a signed jersey from each player. Also, one buyer will stand a chance to win an autographed boot or glove from the player whose pack was purchased.
These autographed items were signed by the players themselves on-set during the shooting of the content for their NFTs.
Each Individual Football Star Pack will be sold for $3,500.
NFTs will be available on Zilliqa marketplace on 6th June
