A Super Start to Series 3 🍿

The First Mint
The First Mint
Featuring Spooky SZN, Top Shot Tip-Off, Fest?!, WNBA Catch-Up and More

Good Morning, NBA Top Shot Squad! Happy Tuesday — Hope you had an excellent weekend, and a big thanks to our man LG for filling in on the weekend Newsletter! Let’s get into all the action from the last few days:
P.S. — it’s spooky SZN, so I’ll be celebrating with some Halloween-themed GIFs to get us all in the right mindset throughout the month!
Some terrifying set names for Top Shot’s consideration:
  • Pumpkin Spiced Slams
  • Hobgoblin Handles
  • Spine-Tingling Strips
  • Cursed Crossovers

Top Shot Tip Off 🏟
If you were around a few months ago, you’re probably aware that Top Shot knows how to provide fans with an epic experience. And it looks like Series 3 will aim to reach even higher in the IRL-space, with the festivities already kicking off on NBA’s opening day.
The details:

How winners are chosen for Oct 19 in MIL:

📸3x @Jrue_Holiday11 Finals Legendary Challenge Finishers
📸7x Holders of ALL @Bucks S2 Playoff Momes
📸7x Holders of @Bucks S2 Set

🏅12x Showcase Challenge
🗣️9x Social Contest
📦1x Starter Pack
Full details in the Top Shot blog. The pool of eligible collectors include several different groups, including challenge participants, set holders, the NLL and more. Speaking of challenge participants — completing the NBA Tip-Off Showcase Challenge will score a golden ticket for 12 lucky winners.
I like the wide variety of pools, rewarding different segments of collectors without forcing anyone into one path to earn rewards. Additionally, this is likely just the tip of the iceberg in terms of set/challenge utility. Can’t wait to see what goodies we see throughout Series 3!
Me, looking through my collection to see how I can possibly win a trip to opening night:
Another Fest? 🎊
What do we have here?
First Mint Fest was a banger — are we ready to run it back?
This tweet may mean something, it may mean nothing. NFA, DYOR.
