This sale was organized by ZKSpace on Aug. 15, 2022, following a massive whitelist giveaway campaign in June and July.

The Platinum NFT (that displays Best Midfielder of the 2014/15 Liga BBVA season) was sold for 11.3 ETH or about $21,400; 40 addresses placed bids for this unique item. The Gold NFTs were sold for up to 2.5 Ethers each.

The new collection dubbed Zurda (“left foot” in Spanish) was designed to commemorate the most impressive moments in the career of James Rodríguez, the most popular Colombian footballer.


The collection included 1 Platinum, 10 Gold, 400 Silver and 1,089 Bronze NFTs; in total, 1,500 assets were offered for sale. Every NFT is associated with a moment in Rodriguez's career. He played for Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Everton FC, winning a list of honors, including two Champions Leagues, two FIFA Club World Cups and a World Cup Golden Boot.

The most impressive NFTs were issued in Platinum and Gold categories; these collections demonstrate crucial moments of James’ career including 2014 Puskas Award-winning goal.
