The “Everlasting Memory” is a one-of-a-kind NFT collaboration to preserve the vivid memories of the historic 1966 World Cup Final. The NFTs are recollections from the famous victory against West Germany in the form of an NFT auction.

The Everlasting Memory NFT Project includes 1 of 1 and open edition NFTs. These NFTs go for auction on leading NFT marketplace aggregator Rarible. The multiple edition NFT goes on sale on the 3rd December. And the one-of-one NFT goes on sale on 16th December. The collaboration is also a part of Harry Yeff (Reeps One) & Trung Bao’s ongoing Voice Gems system.

The Everlasting Memory NFT auction raises funds for two charities. Both of which are close to Sir Geoff’s heart – Alzheimer’s Research UK and the Alzheimer’s Society. As one of only three living members from the World Cup winning 1966 England team, and watching some of his teammates suffer from the terrible disease, this NFT project hopes to preserve the precious memories of the once in a generation win for the millennia to come.

Earlier this summer, Voice Gems founder Harry Yeff (Reeps One) met Sir Geoff at Wembley Stadium. This was also the scene of the famous World Cup Final. This is where the first sparks of this future vision project came to life. Furthermore, Sir Geoff opened-up about his memories to inspire Reeps One’s NFT creation.

The artwork for this project is inspired and generated by Sir Geoff’s vocal memory. Leading beatbox artists Harry Yeff (Reeps One) and Trung Bao lead the direction for the drop. Voice Gems is a 200,000 particle system that turns voice recordings into one of a kind world class sculptures. The duo have been collecting the world’s most iconic voices and memories for the Voice Gems 1000 Year archive.
