Hall of Fame Resort & Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: HOFV, HOFVW), in partnership with Dolphin Entertainment (NASDAQ: DLPN) and Heisman 2 Hall (“H2H”), is pleased to announce that Heisman Trophy winner and Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinee Tim Brown is set to launch his first non-fungible tokens (NFTs) this month. A one-of-a-kind NFT along with an accompanying limited edition collectible NFT will kick off a series produced by the new partnership between HOFV, Dolphin Entertainment and H2H, the brand which represents the only ten men in football history to win a Heisman Trophy and be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Tim Brown’s NFTs, created by award-winning artists, will go live on OpenSea, the world’s first and largest digital marketplace for crypto collectibles and NFTs, starting on May 17th. NFTs featuring H2H Legends Earl Campbell, Doak Walker and others will soon follow.
One of the greatest wide receivers of his era, Brown played his storied college career with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, earning the nickname “Touchdown Timmy” for his prowess on the field. He was selected in the first round of the 1988 NFL draft by the Los Angeles Raiders, and set franchise records for receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.
Both NFTs celebrate Brown’s incredible contributions to the game of football, allowing fans to connect with the athlete on a deeper level. In Brown’s breathtaking 1-of-1 NFT, the legend’s own voice rings out as the viewer is led on an emotional journey through a monument-like structure, experiencing highlights of his career on the field. The NFT was created by Dolphin Entertainment’s Digital Studio in partnership with Shane Griffin, an award-winning visual artist, director and NFT developer. Griffin’s recent work includes projects with Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West, and brands such as Nike, Apple, Adidas and Givenchy. He is a winner of PRINT Magazine’s New Visual Artist and ADC Young Guns award.
The second offering, details of which will be shared in the coming days, will be the first in an exclusive H2H limited edition series of NFTs which will be available on a mass scale. This series will be spearheaded by the award winning partners at Reference, a New York-based creative office specializing in design and motion. Reference will be bringing the defining moments of these exciting moments and careers to life and inviting the viewer to experience them through his or her perspective. Their work is informed by visual culture, research, and emerging technologies.
