Collector Turns Down $250,000 Bounty For 1/1 Anthony Edwards Rookie Card

Would you turn down $250,000? One collector did after hitting the incredibly rare 2020-21 Panini Prizm Choice Anthony Edwards Nebula 1/1 rookie card.

Jared Bleznick, founder and owner of Blez Sports Cards, announced earlier in April that he was offering a quarter-million-dollar bounty for the Ant-Man card.

“I want the world to know there’s one true rookie card that I’ve been searching for over three years — 2021 Prizm Choice, the Anthony Edwards Rookie Nebula has yet to surface,” Bleznick said in the Instagram video.

Since that announcement, Blez Sports Cards was ripping countless cases of 2020-21 Panini Prizm Choice to search for the Nebula rookie card of the young Minnesota Timberwolves superstar. They even pulled two Nebula rookie cards of Charlotte Hornets’ LaMelo Ball and Philadelphia 76ers’ Tyrese Maxey during the chase.

However, everything changed earlier this week when Blez Sports Cards breaker Kevin McGee hit the monster card for a collector known as “Penny Hank.” As we’ve come to learn, “Penny Hank” is a sports card collector from Asia. And as Bleznick revealed Monday, the collector turned down his bounty offer.

“Backer is gonna be a very sad man,” Bleznick said in an Instagram video, referring to his Backer nickname.

Nine Edwards rookie cards have sold for six-figures. Edwards’ most expensive card is his 2020-21 Panini Flawless Logoman Rookie Patch Autograph that sold for $426,000 in June 2022.

It’s not yet known if the collector will keep the Ant-Man Nebula rookie card or try to sell it.
