The world of WEB3 and digital collectibles, albeit new, is starting to become a staple, especially for people who love collecting in general. Digital collectibles allow you to collect assets on a blockchain that usually come with some type of utility, or just have inherent value because of the limited quantity. Autograph, the NFT platform co-founded by Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, have just announced their newest NFT drops that will highlight some of the most iconic SLAM basketball covers of all time.
