23-year-old tennis star Naomi Osaka has joined forces with Tom Brady‘s NFT platform Autograph for an assortment of blockchain-backed preseason access passes.

Osaka’s NFTs arrive at various levels — Carbon Premier, Platinum Premier, Emerald Premier, Sapphire Premier and Ruby Premier — that differ in exclusivity and price. The four-time Grand Slam champion will digitally sign each iteration of her Preseason Access Pass NFTs, which grant owners VIP access to Autograph’s first limited-edition Naomi Osaka drop and the platform’s private community on Discord.

Osaka recently joined Autograph’s advisory board alongside Brady, Derek Jeter and Tiger Woods, in an effort to provide new methods for fans to connect with sports players.

While the first drop concluded on August 25, the second release is now live until 7 p.m. ET today, August 27, on Autograph’s website. Prices range from $12 USD to $1,500 USD.

Last month, Osaka competed in the Tokyo Olympics, where she was eliminated in the third round of the women’s singles tennis tournament after losing in straight sets of 6-1, 6-4, to Czech Republic’s Marketa Vondrousova.

Following the Games, the Olympian debuted a co-designed tennis racket with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, featuring the famed visionary’s signature cherry blossom motif on a white base. Osaka will debut the racket during the upcoming U.S. Open in New York, which is scheduled to begin on August 30.

Elsewhere, Serena and Venus Williams have withdrawn from the U.S. Open due to injuries.
