The Costacos Collection Re-Imagines John's Famed Poster Series and Creates New Digital Art in Collaboration with Legendary Athletes and Their Foundations, Including Warren Moon, Troy Aikman, Pudge Rodriguez, Jim McMahon, Roger Clemens, others.

SEATTLE - eTradeWire -- Iconic, award-winning pop culture artist John Costacos, who established a genre of sports art with his famed sports personality poster creations, along with co-founder and CEO Justin Moorad and Digital Art Director Mike Campau, today unveiled a new blockchain-based digital collectibles company, the Costacos Collection.

The Costacos Collection is partnering with an initial lineup of legendary NFL, MLB, and NBA players and their charitable foundations, including Warren Moon, Troy Aikman, Pudge Rodriguez, Jim McMahon, Roger Clemens, Will Clark, and others to be announced in the coming weeks. The Costacos Collection - the predecessor of which sold over 30,000,000 posters from 1986-96 - utilizes the blockchain medium to help the world's greatest athletes capture their most significant moments, tell their most meaningful stories, and create new digital experiences to connect with fan communities. In addition to re-imagining John's revered poster art, the Costacos Collection is creating new digital art as NFTs, with the tokens serving as the ticket to the company's upcoming Hall of Fame Metaverse.

The Topps Company will also be a partner of the Collection, drawing on content from its vast historical archives and working with Costacos to create new content with Topps' current-athlete partners.

CostacosCollection.com will serve as the gateway to the company's listings as well as post-sale experiences, which will include communities and experiences exclusive to NFT owners. The company plans to fill the gap where Big Tech's social media has failed: enabling fans to connect with and support their heroes directly. Through community engagement features, museum-style social displays, games, raffles and giveaways, trading and staking based on live and AI-generated sporting events, and the bridging of the digital with physical items and events, the company is pursuing a vision not held back by any one particular partnership or association.

"We believe in the long-term power of the technology," said CEO Justin Moorad. "With a chain-agnostic approach, we're able to form partnerships across the ecosystem - from the highest-quality art minted securely on Ethereum, to games built on Solana, to opportunities for proprietary fungible tokens, the Costacos Collection is building technology that positions our athletes at the center of the evolving landscape."
