Every year on May 20th, Levi’s celebrates “501 Day”, paying homage to the patent date of the 501 Original back in 1873. This year is the 148th anniversary and Levi’s has come out with a commemorative trading card set featuring Barbie Ferreira, Emma Chamberlain, Hailey Bieber, Jaden Smith, Marcus Rashford, Naomi Osaka, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
Levi's 501 Day Features Trading Cards and NFT's for Charity
What's Inside the Packs?
The cards boast simple designs and feature the celebrities and athletes sporting Levi’s outfits on solid colored backgrounds. Roughly 8,000 packs will be distributed globally, but they aren’t for sale. They are only available through Levi’s stores globally, as well through the website. If you order a pair of 501 Jeans you will be gifted a pack in the back pocket.
Inside of each pack you will find white base cards with the possibility of hitting chase cards such as red parallels /50, blue parallels /10, grey parallels /50, gold parallels /1 as well as numbered autos and denim relics containing patches of Levi’s jeans that were worn by the talent embedded in the cards.
Naomi Osaka NFT's for Charity
Today at 1pm, there will be an auction for digital NFT’s on Bitski that will have two versions available, including a red 1/1 featuring Naomi Osaka, and a white open edition that costs $50 and is time based, meaning they will mint as many as people order.
All proceeds will be donated to Naomi Osaka’s foundation, Play Academy by Naomi Osaka via Laureus Sport for Good Foundation. Osaka will be on Clubhouse tonight at 8:01pm (5:01 PST) as the auction closes.
