Renee Montgomery is getting in on the NFT game.
The co-owner and vice president of the Atlanta Dream and two-time WNBA champion is dropping her “Starting 5” non-fungible token collection on May 21.

Designed by HEARTLENT Group, the collection reflects Montgomery’s “Moments Equal Momentum” philosophy. Each card showcases a different moment in her basketball career, including the WNBA-record seven 3-pointers she made in one game, her celebrated opt-out tweet and her six championship rings spanning college and the pros.
Montgomery is not the first women’s athlete to get involved with NFTs, which essentially are digital trading cards that enable the owner to unlock additional perks.
Back in April, USWNT stars Megan Rapinoe, Christen Press and Tobin Heath launched their own NFT cards. Sue Bird, Charli Collier and Aari McDonald became some of the first WNBA players to join in the venture.
