Following the first sale of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) from US pro skateboarder Tony Hawk on the NFT Autograph Marketplace, Hawk commemorates his career with a new series of NFT called the “Last Trick” collection. The popular skateboarder’s latest digital collectibles feature his most memorable tricks like the “Frontside Cab”, “Gymnast Plant” and “Finger Flip” in animated NFT form.
Birdman launches 16,600 NFT “Last round”
Professional skateboarder Tony Hawk is considered one of the best in the world and invented many different tricks in his youth, continuing to amaze audiences in his older years. Hawk, also known as Birdman, was one of the first professional skaters to complete the 900 (a 2½-lap or 900-degree spin) at the X Games V in 1999. It took Hawk ten attempts to complete the skateboard lap and since then a few others have also successfully completed the 900 degree spin.
Hawk is also a bitcoin (BTC) fan and claims to have purchased the crypto asset in 2012 after learning about the Silk Road market. The skateboarder and entrepreneur also loves NFTs and recently offered his first NFT collection through the Autograph NFT Marketplace created by Tom Brady. The Preseason Access collection featuring Hawk sold out in minutes and to commemorate his career, he picked five skateboarding tips and turned them into animated NFTs.
“After seeing how quickly my Preseason Access collection sold out, I felt like doing something bigger and more personal with my latest NFT assortment,” Hawk said in a statement. “For The Tony Hawk ‘Last Trick’ Collection with Autograph, I selected five of my signature tips to take them out and reinterpret them into animated NFTs that will last forever.”
Hawk’s NFTs will feature their signature Varial 5, Gymnast Plant, Magic Dance, Front Side Cab and Finger Flip
Hawk’s latest NFT tips will include the “Varial 5”, “Gymnast Plant”, “Magic Dance”, “Front Side Cab” and “Finger Flip”. The collection had an early access deadline of December 14-16. Today at 5:00 p.m. EST, Autograph’s Tony Hawk “Last Trick” Collection will begin its public release. The official reveal date for the NFT will be December 21, 2021, and the early access period has been reserved for owners of the Tony Hawk “Preseason Access Pass”.
According to the website, the tips were created in 16,600 digital collectibles and each NFT has a specific rarity level. The rarity levels of the NFT “Last Trick” collection are called Carbon, Platinum, Emerald, Sapphire and Ruby. Some are nicknamed “Immortal Statue” and some of the NFT collectibles also have a “mystery container” attached to the NFT.
“It’s humbling to see how these tricks take on new life in the digital age even after performing my last ones,” Hawk concluded. “It allows fans to relive them in a new way.”
