Collectors need to have held at least: 15 Moments OR 2 rare Moments OR or 1 legendary Moment at the time of the snapshot. Some collectors also qualify if they have spent at least $999 in the marketplace AND have 1 moment in their collection.
Top Shot introduced Rebound Packs! If you queue for the Legendary drop and do not get a Legendary pack, you may still have a chance at purchasing a base pack.
Top Shot announced the new Showcase Contest! Most collectors should have a chance to at least win a $20 Dapper credit by obtaining 20 Showcase likes. The Top 50 showcases will get 1 Early Adopters Pack, the Top 10 will get 1 Rising Stars pack, and the Top 3 (chose by Top Shot) will get 1 Holo Icon pack. Collectors can start creating and liking showcases for the contest at 12 PM PDT on April 12. Read more about the rules here. Read about how to create showcases on my blog here.
