Naomi Osaka will begin dropping her NFTs on Autograph, the experience-driven NFT platform co-founded by Tom Brady. Her highly anticipated NFTs will be released on an hourly basis from 3PM-7PM ET, and each assortment is expected to sell out within minutes similar to Tom Brady and WayneGretzky’s drops. Naomi credits NFTs for bringing together her various passions for art, design, and technology and this collaboration with Autograph is allowing her to bring her fans closer to her with these digital collectables. These NFTs will be available for purchase on Autograph.io and the DraftKings Marketplace.
“My sister dropped a collection of NFTs a few months ago, and it was exciting to see how well they did. With NFTs, I’m able to choose special moments of my life to share directly with fans, which I find really empowering. Plus it’s an awesome way to be creative and tap into my passion for art. I think NFTs and crypto are here to stay, and it’s something I want to embrace. This is the same fervor of collecting cards, but this time its digital which is so in-line with my generation and how we behave,” said Osaka.
Naomi along with superstar athletes such as Tony Hawk, Derek Jeter, and Tiger Woods are advisory board members to Autograph, offering a new way for fans to further connect with these players and their iconic sports moments. Naomi’s NFTs are being released as part of The Preseason Access collection, and digital collectors will be able to purchase the NFTs at accessible price ranges of $12-$100. More NFTs will drop hourly on Friday from 3-7PM ET, each of which will be digitally signed by the four-time Grand Slam champion, Olympian and the No. 2 player in the world with pricing starting at $250.
