How to pre-register to buy a guaranteed pack
Head to the NBA Top Shots packs page right now and click pre-register before 8 AM PST on April 28.
You do not actually pay for the pack until April 29 or April 30. On those dates, those who have pre-registered will then need to join the pack-buying queue. Only in this case, your pack is guaranteed. They will not run out.
What to do after pre-registration
After pre-registering, you still need to buy your $9.00 pack.
On April 29, buyers will have a 30-hour window to get into the queue and complete their purchase. The purchase window begins on April 29 at 11 AM PST and ends on April 30 at 5 PM PST.
Once again, you can only buy a pack in those windows if you pre-register prior to 8 AM PDT on April 28.
What can NBA Top Shot pack buyers expect?
For $9.00 buyers will receive a Series 2 Base Set pack. This pack contains three moments.
245 different moments are available, including 32 Three-Star Rookie moments and 57 other NBA Top Shot Debuts.
In fact, NBA Top Shot gives access to the complete list of moments that can be pulled.
Some are limited to just one of 3,901, like the moment LaMelo Ball got his first NBA assist. As far as I understand, it won’t be that exact moment as that one is limited to 4,000. But that is the exact play, as you can only have a first assist once. Whoever gets the lucky pull won’t be disappointed either way.
While there are chances to pull rare cards like the NBA Rookie of the Year favorite’s first pro dime, most cards are one of 35,000. Packs are limited to just one per account.
While the pre-registration is an experimental process on NBA Top Shot’s end, we can hope they continue to have more opportunities for interested collectors to get involved with digital basketball trading cards. The less confusion for fans looking to collect sports memorabilia the better.
Good luck with your pulls.
