VIA Hall of Fame Resorts and Entertainment
Canton, OH (May 17, 2021) – Today, football fans will be able to own a piece of history with the launch of two NFTs from Heisman Trophy winner and Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinee Tim Brown. Created in partnership with Hall of Fame Village Media, the recently announced premiere, multi-dimensional content studio division of Hall of Fame Resort & Entertainment Company, Dolphin Entertainment (NASDAQ: DLPN), and H2H, Brown’s offering is the first of its kind and kicks off the H2H Legends Series which showcases the only ten men to have both won a Heisman Trophy and been enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Brown’s NFTs are available on OpenSea, the world’s first and largest digital marketplace for crypto collectibles and NFTs starting today.
Brown’s premiere NFT offering will begin with his exclusive “1-of-1” token. Designed by Shane Griffin, an award-winning visual artist, director, and NFT developer, the video features the legend’s voice ringing out as the viewer is led on an emotional journey through a monument-like structure, experiencing highlights of his career on the field. The winner of the NFT will unlock three special bonuses including a surprise virtual meet-and-greet call from Brown to the winner’s person of choice, a winner’s choice of a personalized signed jersey from either Notre Dame or the Raiders, and two tickets to a future Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony of the winner’s choosing.
The second NFT offering from Brown is the “Playbooks” NFT which was created in partnership with the award-winning New York-based creative office Reference. Only 100 of these NFTs are available, each featuring the defining moments of Brown’s career and bringing them to life, inviting the viewer to experience them through his or her perspective. Each of the “Playbooks” NFTs will be priced at $1,500, with the purchaser of the final NFT (#100) receiving a personalized signed Notre Dame or Raiders helmet of the winner’s choice. This is the first time an exclusive H2H limited edition series of NFTs will be available on a mass scale.
Both NFTs celebrate Brown’s incredible contributions to the game of football, allowing fans to connect with the athlete on a deeper level. One of the greatest wide receivers of his era, Brown played his storied college career with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, earning the nickname “Touchdown Timmy” for his prowess on the field. He was selected in the first round of the 1988 NFL draft by the Los Angeles Raiders, and set franchise records for receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns.
The auction for these NFTs will close on May 24th. Brown’s NFTs are the first offering in a series of exclusive tokens featuring the H2H Legends with offerings from Earl Campbell and Doak Walker to follow.
