RTFKT Partners With Division Street to Benefit Oregon Student Athletes
RTFKT is dropping 291 AR Helmet digital collectibles in an effort to support University of Oregon student athletes, according to an announcement by the team.
RTFKT teased the project with a video of Nike founder and Oregon alumn, Phil Knight, enabling the AR helmet with a simple tap to the side of his head. The group is working in collaboration with Division Street, an organization working to help Oregon athletes make the most of their brand and NIL (name, image, likeness) deals.
All proceeds and royalties from the drop will go directly to Division Street to help them empower Oregon athletes.
How Do I Get An AR Helmet Collectible?
There is no public mint for AR Helmet digital collectibles, instead, allowlisted parties will be selected through a private raffle.
Only Clone X and Flying Formation NFT holders will be eligible to join the public raffle tomorrow (Dec. 20) from 10:30 a.m. ET until 3:30 p.m. ET.
To successfully enter, users must first create an account at RTFKT.com and have at least 0.75 ETH in the wallet associated with the account.
Note: Flying Formation NFT holders have 4x the chance of being selected for the allowlist.
When Is the Mint?
The AR Helmet digital collectible will mint in two phases starting on Wednesday, Dec. 21 at noon ET.
From noon to 3:00 p.m. the allowlisted parties will be eligible to mint an AR Helmet collectible. At the conclusion of the allowlisted window, a waitlist of 500 individuals will have the ability to mint should any supply remain.
No more than 291 helmets will be available for collection.
What Else Do I Get?
Users won't just receive the helmet NFT. In addition to the helmet collectible, all users will have the ability to instantly forge a physical football jersey that goes with the helmet collectible. The forging process takes place during the minting, and users purchasing the accompanying NFT on the secondary market will not have the ability to re-forge the jersey.
This is a one-of-a-kind collectors jersey, taking the last 20 years of innovation from Oregon Football uniforms and combining it into one. Designed by Todd van Horne, who also designed the last 20 years of Oregon Football uniforms 🏈🦆 pic.twitter.com/fMMhJ07XI6— RTFKT (@RTFKT) December 19, 2022
Ten lucky winners will have their jerseys signed by Phil Knight, the founder of Nike. These jerseys will correspond to ten randomly generated, digitally signed Phil Knight helmets.
When Will I Recieve the Physical Jersey?
The physical jersey will ship approximately 90 days after the forging event.
