In addition to iconic quarterbacks, college athletes are also beginning to launch their own NFTs. University of Iowa basketball senior Luka Garza is auctioning a 1-of-1 token on OpenSea. The highest bidder will also get to meet Garza in person and receive autographed game-worn sneakers. In a separate endeavor, Peyton and Eli are launching The Manning Legacy Collection, a set of digital tokens that will be auctioned on MakersPlace starting April 16. Sales of the NFTs will benefit the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at Ascension St. Vincent in Indianapolis and Tackle Kids Cancer. “This is something that could pave the way maybe for college athletes in the future to be able to do this and make money off their name, image and likeness through something like an NFT,” Garza said, according to CNBC.
Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Eli Manning are the latest star athletes to join the NFT marketplace. Brady is launching Autograph, an online platform that will sell non-fungible tokens of athletes and celebrities. April 8, 2021
The seven-time Super Bowl champion will serve as founder and co-chairman of Autograph alongside entrepreneur Richard Rosenblatt. The company’s advisory team includes Golden State Warriors owner Peter Guber, Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino, Cameo CEO Steven Galanis and DraftKings CEO Jason Robins. Andrew Cohen
