Highest Selling Top Shot Moments in 2021

With a massive rise in popularity in the early months of 2021, NBA Top Shot moments have sold for head-turning amounts this year.

This blockchain technology-based platform allows collectors to buy and sell “moments”, which are the modern, digitized version of physical cards. Each moment is an NFT (non-fungible token) that is owned exclusively by the collector and can be transacted to other collectors in a marketplace.

How much are Top Shot Moments worth?

Since Top Shot Moments are bought and sold in a fairly hands-off, capitalistic market, the values can go as high as somebody is willing to pay.

Those who see these moments as an investment in the long-term are willing to spend hundreds, thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars on them.

The value of an individual moment typically derives from the rarity of that moment and a low serial number. The historical significance of the play captured within the moment can also be a factor.

What are the best Top Shot moments to buy?

The main drivers of value for Top Shot moments are rarity, serial number, and historical significance of the content within the moment. If you find a moment with a single-digit serial number, for example, that particular moment will most likely sell for more than those with higher serials. 

The highest profit margins will almost always come from pulling moments in packs, but there is a significant amount of luck involved in that. If you’re not going to rip open packs, your next best bet is to scour the marketplace and try to snipe low serial number moments that are selling beneath their value.
