Anthony Edwards performance on the court this postseason has not only helped Minnesota give Memphis a run for their money this series, but it has also taken his collectibles market to new heights. Recently, one of Edwards trading cards set an all-time record at PWCC Marketplace. This 2020 National Treasures Gold Anthony Edwards rookie card, featuring a jersey patch and autograph, sold for $222,000 in the PWCC April Premier Auction. That sets the all-time record for any Anthony Edwards card sold in a public marketplace.
The card is one of just 10 in existence and received a Mint 9 technical grade from PSA. The grade represents the highest graded version of the card in PSA’s population report and features a beautiful gold inlay along with a large patch window holding an attractive Timberwolves patch within. Edwards’ on-card autograph is penned in deep blue ink and received a perfect 10 assessment for the autograph.
“Collectors have taken notice of Edwards’ career trajectory this year and we’ve seen a number of new sales records as he continues to perform at an elite level,” said Jesse Craig, Director of Business Development at PWCC Marketplace. “The thing to note about his rise is that he is just 20 years old. There is a ton of time for him to continue to develop himself as a player and push for accolades such as an NBA Championship or MVP award. The sale here is a concrete proof point that collectors believe he has the talent to make that push.”
