Golf legend Tiger Woods is taking a swing at non-fungible tokens (NFTs) with the release of his first collection.
According to USA Today, on Sept. 21 Woods released 10,000 NFTs through Autograph — a NFT platform co-founded by Super Bowl champion Tom Brady.
“The intersection of sports and technology is such an interesting space to me, and I’m thrilled to partner with Autograph as they lead the charge by ushering a new era of digital collecting,” Woods said. “It’s been an honor to join their advisory board among so many iconic athletes, and I’m looking forward to bringing fans closer to my memorable sports moments at an accessible price, and to the game I respect so much.”
Woods’ collection comprises of 10,000 digital images of himself, which is available for purchase and sold exclusively on DraftKings Marketplace, USA Today reports.
