NBA Top Shot Weekly Updates (8/30–9/5)
Hello and Happy Labor Day Weekend! Welcome back to the weekly updates! I know I missed the last 2 weeks, I do try to do them every week but sometimes you are just busy or don’t feel well, shout out to all bloggers, YouTubers and streamers who are being consistent, not as easy as it might look. But let’s get back to Top Shot, not the most news filled week but we still have some things to talk about, some I am really excited about, so let’s get into it!
Packs, Marketplace and Updates
No real pack drops this week since last Friday’s first-ever WNBA pack but we did get an airdrop of the WNBA early adopter pack, seems like everyone who held WNBA moment or pack at any moment received one. Inside the pack, there’s only 1 fandom WNBA moment, and of course, I’m keeping it sealed.
Now let’s take a look at the marketplace stats, and usually, I start with the weekly sales volume chart from CryptoSlam, the thing is, the NFT space is really as big as it ever been in the last couple of weeks so Top Shot despite having its regular numbers not even close to the top, still there at the all-time chart, hopefully soon it will get back there on a weekly one too. So let’s better take a look at the market cap from Evaluate.Market.
And the floor prices, now with WNBA additions!
Speaking of WNBA, something I did not get a chance to talk about on last WU, it’s that WNBA is now on Top Shot! Woohoo! So excited about that as a huge WNBA fan, so pumped to collect moments of amazing players like Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird and more!
Count It: The WNBA is now on Top Shot
25 years ago, the game changed. Over the next 25 years, the game changed the world, too. In the quarter century since…
One of the updates we have for this week is that the WNBA collector score was upgraded. At the moment of the release moments were worth just 2 cs points, even tho it was in line with the rest of the Summer 21 series, I thought it wasn’t right that first-ever WNBA moments featuring TS debuts of future Hall of Famers worth that, WNBA deserves better! Happy that so many people came out and supported this on Twitter with me, you guys are the best! TS team heard us and adjusted the collector score, another reason why TS is great, they always trying to become better!
WNBA: Best of 2021 Collector Score Update
Last week's launch of the WNBA was truly historic. We couldn't be more excited to see some of the game's biggest stars…
And the last little update we have is that sales history is back on a moment page itself. For the last few months to see it, you had to do an extra click, not anymore, it’s back, February vibes, if you know you know.
No NBA challenges this week, we are in the off-season, don’t worry, they will be back before you know it.
But we did had a WNBA challenge/quest. You were needed to collect 5 WNBA moments to get a fandom tier moment of reigning league MVP A’ja Wilson!
Like I said before, it’s was kind of a quiet week, but we still have some cool community stuff. Like this video about trade tickets from Top Shot Talk, remember folks, trade tickets are coming and he’s breaking down everything you need to know about it!
A couple of niche fun stories as well, like this, Top Shot got a mention on TV show Brooklyn Nine-Nine! It’s becoming more and more part of pop culture! And remember if you bought Patrick Ewing moment for 1000$, don’t sell it for 8$.
And this little story, about how Steph Curry and Andre Igoudala both bought themselves their first NFT, Ape and a Cool Cat. Just wanted to mention this cause even tho Igoudala does have a Top Shot account, wen Steph?
That’s it for this week updates! And I have a giveaway for you, of course I had to do a WNBA moment, I picked one of the coolest ones on site, Courtney Williams 3-pointer game-winner in OT against New York Liberty. I remember watching this game, it was one of the best of the season, and now it’s on Top Shot, and you can win it! Really easy, just comment your TS name on a tweet with this blog post! Thank you so much for reading, I hope I see you next week! Happy collecting!
