Former Alabama football wide receiver Jerry Jeudy of the Denver Broncos is set to release his first non-fungible tokens.

The NFTs will be available on June 29 (6 p.m. CT) on Bitski, an online market place for this new type of virtual trading card.

An NFT is a virtually transferred piece of art, or in this case a trading card, with a unique identity. The buyer purchases an original piece of blockchain in the same way physical cards would be sold in a store.

Prices range from $205 for a number of Alabama cards, including 2018 and 2019 tributes and a digitally diamond encrusted No. 4 jersey, to $5,280 for a one-of-one ultimate trading card.

Several NFTs from his rookie season with the Broncos will also be available for $303 each.

Jeudy quickly became a star at Alabama, catching 159 passes for 2,742 yards and 26 touchdowns over three seasons on his way to Biletnikoff Award and a national championship.

The Broncos selected him No. 15 overall in 2020, and he caught 52 passes for 856 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie.

Registration for the drop is open here, with a preview of the NFTs available.

A portion of the proceeds going to the Trisomy 18 Support Inc. Foundation. Jeudy's late sister was diagnosed with the disease at birth.
