Denver, CO (June 9, 2021) – Jerry Jeudy announced today that he is releasing a rookie trading card series that will feature the first-ever digital non-fungible token rookie card. The drop will take place on the NFT platform Bitski on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, at 8 pm EST. The series will feature four digital NFT trading cards, two digital diamond-encrusted jerseys, and one ultimate rookie card.
The series starts with a 15-minute unlimited purchasing period for four newly minted bronze, silver, gold, and holographic edition digital trading cards that capture pivotal junctures in Jeudy’s football career. The silver edition honors his 2019 season at the University of Alabama and the holographic edition celebrates his All-American 2018 collegiate season. The gold edition salutes his rookie season with the Denver Broncos and the bronze edition commemorates his 92-yard receiving touchdown – the longest receiving touchdown of the 2020 NFL season.
Four randomly selected buyers of the silver and holographic editions will receive tangible, autographed replicas of those cards. Ten randomly selected buyers of the bronze and gold editions will receive the same. The amount of randomly selected purchasers is representative of Jeudy’s college and NFL jersey numbers.
The second portion of the drop features 159 limited-edition digital diamond-encrusted, autographed No. 4 jerseys and 52 limited-edition digital diamond-encrusted No. 10 jerseys. All limited-edition items are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The quantities are reflective of Jeudy’s career college receptions and rookie NFL receptions.
Additionally, four randomly selected buyers of the No. 4 jerseys will receive a tangible autographed Jerry Jeudy, University of Alabama jersey. Ten randomly selected buyers of the No. 10 NFT jerseys will receive a tangible autographed Jerry Jeudy, Denver Broncos jersey.
The silver and holographic cards, and No. 4 NFT jerseys are priced at $205 each. The bronze and gold cards and the No. 10 NFT jerseys are priced at $303 each. The purchase prices are a tribute to the predominant area codes of Tuscaloosa, AL, and Denver, CO.
The drop closes with an auction for the ultimate rookie card – a one-of-one double-sided gold and platinum-plated NFT featuring Jeudy’s college statistics on the gold side and his rookie NFL statistics on the platinum side.
The winning bidder receives an autographed tangible replica of each NFT card, a tangible autographed and personalized Jeudy jersey from both college and the NFL, and a meet and greet with him over Zoom. Bids for the one-of-one card start at $5,280 in honor of the Mile High City.
A portion of the proceeds from the drop will support Trisomy 18 Support Inc. Foundation. Jeudy’s late sister Aaliyah was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 at birth and he has dedicated his career to her.

About Non-Fungible Tokens
NFTs are a form of digital assets. No two NFTs are alike. They can be bought, sold, and owned. Every NFT is certified and authenticated digitally on a blockchain. NFTs can consist of digital art, collectible cards, memorabilia, videos, and audio among other things.
Blockchain is a digital technology that stores data across thousands of servers. It provides authentication of goods and allows users to see others’ entries in real-time, track sales and re-sales, and prevents hacking and data manipulation.
