76ers launch Legacy NFT collection with Crypto.com
After revealing their City uniforms on Monday morning, the Philadelphia 76ers have officially unveiled their corresponding Legacy NFT Collections. Partnering with Crypto.com, the 76ers’ uniform sponsor, the team has begun to release 13 NFTs detailing their time at The Spectrum.
The first of the 13 NFTs released this morning and commemorates the 76ers’ first game at their former arena that occurred on October 18th, 1967.
“NFTs are an exciting new collectible space and one through which we’ll pay homage to great moments in franchise history during the Spectrum era of 76ers basketball. Through the Legacy NFT Collection, the past and present will converge via one-of-a-kind collectibles.” – Chris Heck.
Per the team’s release, the Legacy NFT Collection breaks down into three tiers. All considered very rare: Original, Banner and Signature. All drops will include one Original series, as well as 49 mystery packs, for a total of 50 collectibles per drop. Generated at random, these packs will each include one piece of collectible art, either Banner series or Signature series— which can be virtually unwrapped and kept or traded on the Crypto.com/NFT marketplace.
Several members of the 76ers have been getting into NFTs recently, so this release fits perfectly into their new interest. Daryl Morey, Tobias Harris, Ben Simmons, and Seth Curry have all dove headfirst into the digital world and have spearheaded the popularity within the sports world. The Sixers will wear their Spectrum uniforms tonight when they host the Chicago Bulls.
