Patrick Mahomes made a big splash in the NFT space this past Friday, with his first collection of digital art selling out on the auction site MakersPlace. Raking in 3.7 million dollars, Mahomes’ collection featured several limited edition artworks, with some pieces rarity determined by the number of purchases made within the first fifteen minutes.
Within 30 minutes of the collection dropping, it had already generated $3.4 million dollars. By the time the collection’s 1 of 1 ultra-rare NFT entitled “Mahomes Magic” ended, that figure was up to $3.7 million. Selling for $248,688.49, the auction winner for this NFT was given a Samsung digital frame to display the artwork as well as a ruby and Swarovski crystal-encrusted football helmet and an autographed Mahomes jersey.
Other physical pieces of memorabilia were included in the collection drop as well, with four autographed helmets being raffled amongst those that purchased an open edition.
This isn’t the first time Mahomes has made headlines for price-heavy collectibles. Last month one of his rookie cards sold for $861,000 at auction. Read our story on that here.
