On Tuesday morning, the Golden State Warriors became the first professional sports team to enter the non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace.

The team announced a release for the Warriors legacy collection to the OpenSea platform, featuring digital championship rings for each of the franchise’s championships.

The Warriors will also have digital commemorative ticket stubs available from memorable games, including the “We Believe” upset, the 2016 team’s 73rd victory against the Memphis Grizzlies, and the final game at Oakland’s Oracle Arena.

Golden State’s decision to release an NFT collection comes after the league’s wild success with the blockchain-based platform NBA Top Shot. Top Shot allows users to buy, sell and trade different numbered versions of officially licensed individual highlights from specific moments around the league.

There will be limited available NFT options for each item in Golden State’s legacy collection. The different pieces from the collection are currently available for auction online.
