A Powerful Strike 🥊

The First Mint
The First Mint
Featuring Holo Icon Packs, Series 1 Reserve Drop, A Flash Challenge Tracker, UFC Strike and More

Good Morning, NFT Squad! It’s the freakin’ weekend! Hope you all had an amazing last few days, and maybe even snagged an NFL All Day playoff — or an UFC Strike (!) pack yesterday?
Let’s get into all the action from the last few days:
Hunting For Holos
We’ve got a big day in NBA Top Shot on Tuesday, with both the Legendary Holo Icon and MGLE drop #2 coming to the platform!
Both drops will feature Priority Queues, so it might be time to pump those Collector Scores if you want a better chance. A projected breakdown of the odds of scoring, if you line up for all queues:

Based on the current @LiveTokenCo numbers here are the odds for next Tuesday (if you qualify and show up for all queues)

MGLE but no Holo - 33%
No Packs - 28%
Both Packs - 22%
Holo but no MGLE - 18%
Wondering if the steep $999 Legendary pack will be worth it? A great breakdown via @NBATopShotTalk:

One of the legendary rewards in particular has me all hot and bothered… That DeMar DeRozan game-winner! 😍
Speaking of my Chicago Bulls — after a dirty, dangerous foul from Grayson Allen on my man Alex Caruso, I had to rage sell his moment. No room for that in my collection!
News Flash ⚡️
We got two other pieces of Top Shot news on Friday, with the announcement of the third Series 1 Reserve Packs and a new Flash Challenge.
500 S1 Reserve packs will be available on Thursday, Jan. 27 — at the same price of 350 Trade Tickets. I have still yet to trade in a moment, but good luck to those taking the journey!
In the Flash realm, Top Shot threw another weekend-long challenge at us! You’ll need top 9 highest-scoring performances in the span (plus a Kevin Durant moment) to score an Anthony Davis MSFE reward.
If you’re a Flash Challenge fanatic, our friend Moment Nerd debuted his latest creation:

OK! I'm going to experiment with the updated Flash Challenge tracker tonight. New mobile-friendly design and pricing data appears when it feels like it. 🤷🪲

PLEASE double-check all standings as it's literally a few minutes old. Feedback always welcome!
Top Shot community = Undefeated.
A Powerful Strike 🥊
If you caught Thursday’s newsletter, we got a tease that something big was coming. That something? The launch of Dapper’s UFC Strike platform.
The SoHo House of Top Shot (the Nine Lives Lounge) was the first to get their paws on the product, gaining exclusive access for the first drop. I’m not an MMA person, but the moments and website seem to have that same magic that made Top Shot so special:
It also looked to be a royal rumble, as Phil D always loves — with users having no limit on the amount of packs secured:

Wow! The first ever @UFCStrikeNFT DROP happened today and it was UNLIMITED packs!!!👇🏼

We also got the first-ever playoff packs on NFL All Day, with another new wave of users gaining access prior to the drop. With three simultaneous products now rolling, the Dapper sports empire is certainly starting to heat up!
