Giba is a champion here at IDG too! The promotional cards of the Brazilian volleyball idol sold out after a successful first round of Digital Collectible releases last April. So Giba is increasing his collection and launching new Digital Collectibles in partnership with IDG.
The Olympic gold medalist (Athens 2004) is the only volleyball player in the world to win his sport's major tournaments, such as the Olympic Games and the World Championships, and be named MVP in each major tournament. Giba sees the Digital Collectibles as an innovative tool to stay close to the fans, promote volleyball and celebrate Brazil's victorious history in the sport. "This collection is a way to greet the fans for their affection and share a piece of my history and the achievements of Brazilian volleyball," says Giba.
Among the new Digital Collectibles are five digital collectibles from the Legendary category, limited to a single copy. All of them come with memorabilia specially chosen by Giba for his fans! The lucky fan who gets the Digital Collectible legendary from Giba will have access to exclusive items, such as Giba's first worn jersey when he joined the Brazilian National team back in 1995.
These Legendary Digital Collectibles have a unique format: the athlete posed for artistic studio photos (shot by the Spanish photographer Cesar Martin Tovar) and recorded video testimonies as he reflected on his achievements, memories of the time, and backstage stories of the decisive games. The sessions focused on the Brazilian dominance in volleyball in the 2000s, when Giba and his teammates made three consecutive Olympic finals (2004, 2008, 2012) and three consecutive World Championship finals (2002, 2006, 2010).
There is also a Rare Digital Collectible category. Its illustration portrays the player's magical performance in Brazil's final match against Italy at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. It was illustrated by Brazilian artist Thiago Soares of BIRDO, the company that created the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic mascots. These exclusive Digital Collectibles are pure emotion and have everything to win over the hearts of fans of the sport!
