Dubbed the “Mugshot” edition, Trump fans can now buy 47 digital cards or NFTs for $99 each to get a physical card mailed to their given address. The physical card includes a piece of the suit that Trump wore when he got his infamous mugshot at the Fulton County jail on the 24th of August, 2023. Buyers of these 47 digital cards will also be invited to a gala dinner at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida. These digital cards can be purchased at collecttrumpcards.com.
Once sold out, the digital collection is likely to hit NFT trading avenues such as OpenSea. When Trump launched his first digital card collection in December 2022, the trading of these cards commanded immense volume on OpenSea, with a single card trading hands at around $230 vs. the $99 original price. The former US President launched his second NFT collection in August, again managing to attract phenomenal interest.
Trump has been charged in four criminal cases now. He currently faces four criminal counts for attempting to overturn the 2020 Presidential election, 13 felony counts for election interference in Georgia, 34 felony counts in the Stormy Daniels hush money case, and 40 felony counts in the classified documents case. Against this backdrop, the new mugshot NFT collection is likely a shrewd political maneuver on the part of the former US President to keep his base agitated against what he calls blatant political persecution.
Meanwhile, as Trump’s legal woes refuse to subside, the proposed merger between the SPAC Digital World and Truth Social’s parent entity, Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG) continues to face inordinate delays. In a fresh filing on the 06th of December, Digital World announced that it has again extended the merger consummation deadline by three months. Do note that under the terms of the amended merger agreement, the SPAC can enforce such a delay up to four times, with each extension granting a 3-month reprieve. Going forward, Digital World will only be able to exercise this right a further two additional times.
