“I am pleased to inform you that, due to the great success of my previously launched DIGITAL TRADING CARDS, we are doing it again, SERIES 2, AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW. GO TO collecttrumpcards.com,” Trump posted on Truth Social. “Have fun!”
The card is a digital image of Trump in gold cufflinks and a red tie holding the iconic Liberty Bell with a flag blended into a pastel sunset in the background.
The card is $99 and is “intended as collectible items for individual enjoyment only, not for investment vehicles,” the e-commerce website states.
“Each Series 2 Trump Digital Trading Card has a unique pre-assigned rarity. Some will be one-of-ones (the only one in the world), while others will be limited,” the marketplace reads. “No Trump Digital Trading Card will have more than 10 copies in existence!”

Despite previous negative online reviews, Trump’s collection of digital trading cards sold out in less than a day, generating $4.5 million in sales. He billed the issue of the cards as a “major announcement.”
“I had some MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENTS the last couple of weeks, too,” President Joe Biden mocked Trump on Twitter.
“Whoever told Trump to do this should be fired,” Keith and Kevin Hodge, two Trump supporters, posted on Twitter. “Man, when all Patriots are looking for is hope for the future of our country and Trump hypes everybody up with a ‘BIG ANNOUNCEMENT’ then drops a low-quality NFT collection video as the ‘announcement,’ it just pushes people away.”
“Whoever thought this was a good idea needs to be fired,” conservative Caleb Hull posted on Twitter.
Former Trump assistant Sebastian Gorka said the digital cards “never should have happened.”
“It is fun, it is hyperbolic, but who wrote that pitch should be fired,” Gorka said. “We don’t have time to waste. If you want to do this kind of stuff, you can have a peon do it, OK. Get somebody who is recognized in the MAGA world to put their face to this thing and do it.”
