On Tuesday, Sept. 20, Gary Vaynerchuk joined Chris Costa to celebrate the winners of the VeeFriends League Week 2 contests and do a live pack break experience. VeeFriends prizes were awarded to the top 20 finishers in Week 2 and the top 1,000 moved on to the Week 4 Major contest.
1ST – 8TH: A Sealed VeeFriends Series 1 Trading Card Box, A Single VeeFriends Series 1 Trading Card
9TH – 20TH: Two (2) Sealed VeeFriends Series 2 Trading Card Boxes, A Single VeeFriends Series 1 Trading Card
Chris and GaryVee broke two boxes of VeeFriends for the prizes and the top 20 winners were entered in a hit draft style break. With INTR1CATE winning the contests with 188.06 fantasy points, they were awarded the first pick. Tua Tagovailoa carried the winners to the top of the leaderboard with a double stack of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Rashod Bateman and Nick Chubb helped lock down the top spot and DeAndre Swift + Cooper Kupp.
A lot of great cards were pulled, highlighted by a GaryVee autographed Panther Life Sketch card. Only 15 of these cards are in circulation with just 1,000 total boxes available of VeeFriends, the card is extremely rare.
The latest promotion brings Web3 into the mix with PFP NFTs. For those new to the blockchain, profile pictures ushered in a huge NFT boom in 2021, and many in the space point to Cryptopunks as being the historical project that created the category.
Logan Hitchcock does a great job explaining the history of the Punks and also takes a deep dive into the Bored Ape Yacht Club and Doodles. Check out the stories linked above and below.
