After retiring five of his most iconic tricks and turning them into NFTs in December’s ‘Last Trick Skateboard Collection,’ the GOAT of skateboarding Tony Hawk is now auctioning off the boards in which he used to perform such landmark tricks. In continuing the icon’s partnership with Autograph, the 1-of-a-kind, signed physical assets will come with an NFT which features a 3D scanned digital replica of the board.
The auctions for each board will take place separately throughout the day on April 19th, with the boards associated with Hawk’s ‘Gymnast Plant,’ ‘Finger Flip,’ ‘Magic Dance’ and ‘Varial 540’ all up for grabs. The auctions will be hosted by DraftKing’s marketplace, with Hawk stating that fiat bids with no minimum can be placed, in order to allow as many fans as possible to participate. To reward fans even further, 13,690 points will be added to the Tony Hawk NFT ‘Collection Score’ of each auction’s winner.
With the Tony Hawk NFT ‘Collection Score’ in mind, and for those wondering where the fifth board is, the ‘Rise & Surprise’ campaign for preexisting Tony Hawk NFT holders has already chosen a winner for the NFT and board combination associated with Hawk’s ‘Frontside Cab’.
The winner, as well as those who get their mitts on the remaining four boards, will have no leg work to do in wake of their triumph, as Autograph will be obligated to send the physical skateboards to each winner via USPS, Fedex, or UPS.
