You know, I have no idea.  Has there ever been an origin story in print?  I know the first movie touched on it a little.

 he's stated he's over 100 years old and that he's immortal twice

He's not 100. He was born on October 28 1929. And he is immortal. The movie Blade, however, does age like a human.

that date is from the max series and hasn't been referenced since. Blade most recently stated he's over one hundred years old.

It wasn't referenced in Marc Guggenheim's Blade run? I absolutely thought it was; I'm gonna have to go check that. Anyway, the MAX series was referenced in the OHotMU section on Blade. That's canon, at least until it's contradicted somewhere else. And no one has ever said he wasn't born on October 29, 1929. What reference to being over a hundred are you remembering, and where can I find it? Might it be a generalization or over-exaggeration?

most characters dont have a birthdate, or have one that is always moving. Blade stated he's been alive for 100 years in Marvel Presents. In Guggenheim's series we see that a full grown Blade is fighting in World War 2 which alone make his birthday 10-20 years earlier than 1929. It is canon that Blade was born in the early 1900's though.

Blade has also stated that he's immortal a couple of times.
