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. They are also located next to the Set name when viewing their Moment:
In the Marketplace, badges are located in the right-hand corner of the Moment details.
Rookie of the Year Badge
This badge signifies that the play was from the Rookie of the Year and is applied to every eligible existing and future NBA and WNBA Moments.
Rookie Year Badge
This badge signifies that the play featured in a given Moment was from the subject player’s rookie season, regardless of when said Moment was minted.
Rookie Premiere Badge
This badge signifies that the specific play featured in a given Moment is from the subject player’s very first regular-season matchup.
Rookie Mint Badge
This badge signifies that the specific play featured in a given Moment was minted at some point during the subject player’s rookie season.
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).
This Badge applies to players' Moments if they won the MVP award for that same year (season).
Championship Year Badge
This Badge applies to Moments associated with the team that won the Championship in the season the Moment is from. If a player is traded mid-season, only their Moments associated with the team that won the Championship will receive the Championship Badge.
