    Just starting this thread as the old thread is sort of off topic. We are past that first drop now and these are pretty exciting.

    Now if I could just get something under 15,000 place in line to get one!

    Thank you to everyone in our community who has participated in our NFT drops on DraftKings Marketplace in its opening weeks.

    We want to take a brief moment to share our thoughts on a topic that has been discussed in this thread, consumers who attempt to circumvent our policies and procedures regarding the queue process will be subject to appropriate action.

    Now back to your discussion of our Primary Drops and resales in the Secondary Market!

    thanks for your post-it is pretty apparent based on simple math the odds are impossible for folks to be scoring multiple signed ones and as others have noted some are blatantly flaunting their success. I will be interested to see if those same very folks score jeters too

    p.s hope some other big names come up jeter and tiger are certainly great ones

    I see that the two guys I mentioned didn’t get Gretzky cards, so maybe they were banned, but I found another account who got 3/5 signed Gretzky cards. Monitoring new accounts is most probably a difficult task, but still, someone found a leak and might have shared it with others. The two guys I mentioned have a discord community, based on their tweets.

    Anyway, I hope DK resolves it and we can try our luck on future drops! I’m saving money to buy a Tony Hawk signed card if I don’t “win” one. He’s a wild card and I’m not sure how the market will react for him. I’d guess higher than Biles/Osaka but lower than Gretzky. Jeter should be between Brady and Gretzky, and Woods similar to Jeter.

    I’d like a shuffled deck drop, too. You participate to the drop, and if you win, they show you which card you get and you have the option to buy it or not. There could be rare ones in there, just like a normal sports card deck. I assume it’d be way more complicated though.

    If people are using multiple accounts or something related to increase their chances that is understandable and draftkings should take steps to ban them, but if there really is an exploit that allows a single account to jump the line banning them won’t do shit.

    I don’t know that there is such an exploit, but you can’t run a lottery if you can’t guarantee that the results are random.

    Banning people after the fact won’t do anything. It will just be different people(or more likely different accounts) using the exploit each time until the exploit is patched. No honest player will win the rarer drops if there is such an exploit no matter how many players they ban.

    I totally agree. I participate in the drops anyway because they are free, but it doesn’t look good at all if the system is still compromised after 4 weeks. If 100 people find out how to do it, then no one can “win” a signed card.

    Another day, another cheat, but a different one this time. The same user (staub) successfully bought 3 mispriced cards before everyone else. As soon as the market for each card opened, I refreshed constantly to see if someone would sell his card at a misprice. I never saw any of the 3 cards staub bought, which means he probably bought them in under a second each. Pretty sure a lot of people are like me and refresh constantly, but one guy got all 3 misprices of the day so far, which makes 0 sense.

    He got a $350 platinum, a $600 platinum and a $1.15K emerald.

    Another misprice for the sapphire card at $1.8K, and guess who got it? Yep, staub again.

    Glad that DK finally responded, but everyone will believe it when they see it if anything is actually done to fix this situation.

    As Felixxberg noted, users have also been able to automate/script the Secondary Market to purchase anything at the ‘right’ price instantly. A normal user has 0 shot to secure any of these NFTs.

    yep the generic we are looking into it does not cut it but that sadly is probably all we will get just like previous dfs investigations

    the floor on these are rising rapidly. Emerald /1500 pushing 1k, the carbon up over $700. A whale scooping up a bunch of floor Brady’s? Been really moving this weekend

    Brady and Gretzky moved up a whole lot, signed and unsigned, but Osaka and Biles didn’t. I sold one Biles, one Osaka and two Gretzky. Never had a Brady. I still have 2 Osaka, two Biles and one Gretzky. My goal is to buy a signed card, probably Tony Hawk.

    Dumb question – pardon please – trying to join the Derek Jeter Tuesday drop but unable to do so. How soon before can one get in line?

    30 minutes before each drop time. (Ex. 3pm est drop so 230pm)

    Also thats only the time the queue opens up. You can join any time between open until drop and its still a lottery to where you are in queue position.

    I sold 7/8 that I had held since the day they dropped. I have low ask Emerald signed Gretzky up right now at $6500.

    Probably could have held out to try and make 30-40% more but I find that with NFTs you should have an exit price in mind when you buy and then stick to it.

    Have a huge DK bankroll for NFL season now…

    Like in real life, having money helps making money. $12 cards are now selling for minimum $740 (Brady), which is roughly a 60x investment, but still only a few hundreds. Your $1.5K card sale for $20K is “only” 13x, but it’s a huge profit.

    I can see cards continuing to go up, but there’s a limit. If the cheapest cards are at $1K, then I assume there won’t be enough buyers and the sellers will have to lower prices. A lot of DK users play low stakes, and not everyone has thousands to put on digital cards!

    Yeah I sold a $12 Brady for 744 and a $50 Brady for $944, much better ROI there for sure.

    Is anyone else thinking Jeter’s market baseline will be like Gretzky’s? (heresy imo)

    Based on multiple posts in the current thread, I think Jeter will be more popular than Gretzky. I highly suggest holding to your cards if you win some, and quickly going to the marketplace and buy some if you don’t win some.

    You’ll be surprised to see how many people will sell $12 cards for like $25.
