Dapper’s NBA Top Shot experienced a wild price bubble during the NFT boom. The followup NFL All Day collection has had a more modest rollout - and collectors think that's good news....

  • The COVID-19 pandemic led to serious mental health challenges for many people, but also fueled a rush of financial speculation and collectible interest.
  • Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and sports collectibles, such as NBA Top Shot, gained a lot of interest and sales volumes skyrocketed in early 2021.
  • However, the crash came in April 2021 and Top Shot volumes and prices declined dramatically, leaving many collectors disgruntled.
  • A followup collection from Dapper Labs called NFL All Day launched in August 2022, but didn’t generate the same hype that Top Shot had.
  • Top Shot volumes are still roughly 10 times higher than when the series launched, and collectors are still interested in digital collectibles.

The article discusses both positive and negative aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic's impact on human behavior, with a focus on financial speculation and collectibles. The sentiment is mostly neutral, with some negative tones regarding the crash of Top Shot and the disappointment of some collectors.
