Golf legend Tiger Woods has joined Autograph, which is an NFT-trading platform co-founded by NFL and Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Tom Brady.

As reported by Stockhead, the platform has also partnered up with the entertainment company Lionsgate and sports-betting firm DraftKings in a dynamic move for Brady's company.

Woods joins the advisory board of Autograph alongside some of sport's biggest names such as Wayne Gretzky, Derek Jeter, Naomi Osaka and Tony Hawk.

A key aim for Autograph is to bring sports stars closer to the fans and they believe that this can be done by flogging digital collectables to them. The platform will enable the stars to auction off NFT (non-fungible token) content directly within the Autograph marketplace.

According to an announcement made yesterday, Autograph's NFT content will be sold on the DraftKings digital collectables marketplace.

The NBA has so far netted more than $500 million in NFT sales on its platform. Much like Autograph's fellow peer-to-peer NFT trading platform OpenSea, there is no specific investable token model for Autograph at this point.

Meanwhile, the digital content provided by Lionsgate will be launched directly on Autograph’s marketplace and will feature NFT's focusing on film franchises including John Wick, Mad Men, the Twilight saga and more.

Autograph is planned for an official launch in America this summer, so another announcement can be expected in the coming months.
