Covers of SLAM basketball magazine to appear as NFTs
The Tom Brady co-founded firm Autograph and iconic basketball brand SLAM will distribute an archive of digital-collectible magazine covers on DraftKings Marketplace.
The deal between the two companies gives Autograph users access to SLAM’s 300-plus cover archive dating back to 1994, featuring some of the greatest basketball players over the last three decades.
The magazine covers feature players ranging from Michael Jordan, Larry Johnson, and Allen Iverson to Russell Westbrook and Devin Booker.
The magazines have been collector items for over 27 years, and the cover remains the Holy Grail for all basketball players.
SLAM has grown into a global lifestyle brand and multimedia property with 20-plus social channels, a growing merchandise division, and numerous franchise events annually with over 16 million followers worldwide.
Dillon Rosenblatt, CEO, and Co-founder of Autograph said their partnership with SLAM allows them to offer the most unique and historic basketball NFT content
The Autograph NFTs previously dropped on DraftKings Marketplace included such star athletes as Tony Hawk, Tiger Woods, Wayne Gretzky, Derek Jeter, Naomi Osaka, and Simone Biles.
SLAM previously partnered with New Orleans Pelicans All-Star Zion Williamson for a first-of-its-kind NFT drop in April, which included two SLAM covers featuring Williamson.
