- Courtyard is giving away 400 mystery packs containing rare Pokémon cards as NFTs from Nov 14-17 across timed drops
- The packs include a mix of vintage, modern, and promo cards that have been professionally graded and authenticated
- Tokenizing the cards establishes digital scarcity, proof of ownership, and allows trading real-world collectibles through digital means
Crypto collectibles startup Courtyard is giving away hundreds of mystery packs containing graded and tokenized Pokémon cards as an early Thanksgiving gift. The NFT-tied packs will allow collectors to redeem physical cards stored by vaulting firm Brinks if desired. Let’s take a look at how this promotion will work.
What’s In The Packs
The mystery packs will contain a mix of vintage, modern, and promo cards. Highlights include a 2020 Sword & Shield Shiny Star Charizard and a 1998 Starter Red Green Gift Set Holo Scyther. All cards have been professionally graded to authenticate their condition.
Courtyard plans to distribute 400 packs over 4 days from November 14-17. There will be 100 packs given away per day across 4 timed drops. An additional 10 packs will be set aside for collectors who provide the best responses to Courtyard’s Thanksgiving questions.
Why Tokenize Pokémon Cards?
By putting cards on the blockchain as NFTs, Courtyard establishes digital scarcity and proof of ownership. Tokenized cards serve as certificates of authenticity for the physical items. This model allows trading real-world collectibles through digital means.
Courtyard’s Progress So Far
Previously, Courtyard has sold out 1700 tokenized cards in 9 similar drops, bringing an estimated $200,000 worth of graded Pokémon to the blockchain. The company raised $7 million in seed funding last year from investors including OpenSea, VaynerFund, and Brinks.
The blockchain offers new possibilities for trading and owning rare collectibles. Courtyard’s promotion provides a chance for Pokémon fans to acquire vintage cards in virtual and physical form. This Thanksgiving, catch ’em all on the blockchain.
