In a characteristically ad-libbed video, former President Donald Trump announced the release of his latest set of “MugShot Edition” criminal arrest commemorative NFT (non-fungible token) swag. Nearly a year after introducing his virtual trading card line, this third set includes the chance to possibly obtain a “physical card” featuring a piece of “arrest-worn” cloth and an opportunity to have dinner with Trump.
The NFT “cards” feature fantasy art similar to the earlier sets, described as “swole superhero” by some. Trump, in his 37-second promotional video, acknowledged this characteristic art style and concluded with a cheerful “Have a good life!”
In the video, Trump stated, “Hi, everyone. This is your favorite president, Donald J. Trump, with some very exciting news.” He highlighted the success of his previous digital trading card collections and introduced “The MugShot Edition,” consisting of 47 new cards. Trump then announced two special offers for collectors: the creation of a real physical Trump card, including a piece of the suit he wore during the famous mug shot, and an invitation to a gala dinner at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida for those who purchase 47 digital cards.
Trump emphasized the authentic and autographed nature of the physical cards, referring to them as true collector’s items. He encouraged purchasers to share them with their families and considered them exclusive pieces of American history. The video concluded with Trump directing viewers to the website collecttrumpcards.com to make their purchases and expressing confidence that the MugShot Edition would sell out rapidly.
