The duo will take it to the next level with their latest NIL deal.
The M Den, which is the official merchandise retailer for Michigan athletics, released a new limited edition trading card on Wednesday featuring both Corum and Edwards. The opportunity was made possible because of The M Den’s relationship with Michigan’s Valiant Management.
The limited edition trading card, which is a unique autographed “Michigan Moments” feature with only 250 total printed and signed, commemorates the 339 yards piled up by the duo in a 41-17 victory over Penn State last week. Right now, it’s only available for pre-order and the price for the card is… $339.

Edwards finished with 173 yards on 16 carries with two touchdowns, and Corum had 28 carries and racked up 166 yards with two more scores for the fourth-ranked Wolverines.
“I think they really kind of propel each other,” Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh said after the impressive victory. “The offensive line knows that if they give Blake space, Donovan space, any kind of crack, they’re going to make the most of it. You can’t have two guys that are happier about the way their offensive line comes off the ball than Donovan Edwards and Blake Corum. They’re both … It’s the ultimate team sport, and they’re big fans of each other. I can tell you that.”
In mid-September, Wolverines starting quarterback J.J. McCarthy also released autographed trading cards, which sold out in less than one hour. Since fans were clearly excited about McCarthy’s trading card, it’s likely the trend will continue with Corum and Edwards as well.
