Within a few days after beating Daniil Medvedev in the 2022 Australian Open final in what was one of the greatest tennis matches ever, Rafael Nadal took to social media to announce his collaboration with Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) platform Autograph.
Co-founded by American NFL legend Tom Brady, Autograph brings the biggest names in sports and entertainment closer to their most ardent fans by creating digital collections and experiences.
When Nadal lifted his 14th Roland Garros and 22nd Grand Slam title earlier this month in Paris, the Autograph and Draftkings decided to honor his grand achievement by launching El Rey: The Rafael Nadal Collection.
Brady posted a video on Twitter yesterday where he seemed thrilled about the launch of Nadal’s collectibles later in the day.
There are two types of NFTs in the El Rey: The Rafael Nadal Collection. The first are the ’22’ collectibles and the second are the 2,800 Rafael Nadal: El Rey Mystery Containers. These containers include one of six trading cards, three embossed and three in color. The cards are called The Prodigy, The Master and The King.
Along with the Spaniard, Japan’s Naomi Osaka is another tennis star who is associated with Autograph.
Playing his first match on grass in three years, Nadal outclassed Switzerland’s Stan Wawrinka in straight sets in an exhibition match. The players faced each other in the Giorgio Armani Tennis Classic at the Hurlingham Club, where the Spaniard beat the Swiss 6-2, 6-3 in 61 minutes.
After winning the match, Nadal stated that it was good to have played the exhibition event to prepare for Wimbledon, which starts next wekk.
