Badges

Badges provide a visual flair to Moment NFTs on NBA Top Shot. Badges are unique visual identifiers awarded to select Moments that meet certain criteria.

Badges are located above the player's name in their Moment:

Three-Star Rookie Badge

To do our Three-Star Rookies justice, we’ve designed a specific super-badge that will appear on Moments in place of the three individual rookie badges. For all intents and purposes, the Three-Star Rookie Moments will still qualify for each of the individual rookie badges, but the world will see the Three-Star Rookie badge and immediately understand the historical significance of the Moment.

Top Shot Debut Badge

Top Shot Debut badges will be affixed to any Moment featuring the player’s first play minted on the blockchain. Bear in mind that the Top Shot Debut badge will be assigned to the player's first play that is minted in our system and not necessarily the first one that reaches circulation (for example, Théo Maledon's Rising Stars Moment will not receive the Top Shot Debut badge because his Series 2 Base Set Moment was minted first. It just had not been released yet).
