Badges provide a visual flair to Moments on NBA Top Shot. Badges are unique visual identifiers awarded to select Moments that meet certain criteria.
Badges are located above the players' name in their Moment:
Badges above Tyrese Haliburton's Moment
or on the Marketplace.

Rookie Year Badge
This Badge signifies the Moment was from that player’s rookie season, regardless of when the Moment was minted.
Rookie Premiere Badge
This Badge signifies the Moment is from that player’s very first regular-season appearance.
Rookie Mint Badge
This Badge signifies the Moment was minted during that player’s rookie season.
Three-Star Rookie Badge
This Badge signifies the Moment has met the criteria for Rookie Year, Premiere, and Mint badges. Moments meeting that criteria will instead receive a Three-Star Rookie Badge. Moments with this badge will still qualify for each of the individual rookie badges.
Top Shot Debut Badge
This Badge signifies the Player’s first Moment minted on NBA Top Shot.
Please note: Top Shot Debut Badge will be assigned to the player’s first play Minted in our system and not necessarily the first Moment released through Packs.
Championship Year Badge
This Badge applies to a players' Moment if their team won the Championship that same year (season).
If a player is traded mid-season, only the Moments of a players' Winning Team will receive the Championship Badge.
