Donald Trump toted a big announcement on his platform Truth Social on Wednesday, but it wasn’t in regards to his third run for president. Trump has announced his latest financial venture, digital trading cards.

On Thursday, the former president took to his social media platform to announce the release of his digital collectable cards that are $99 each. Cards depict Trump as a superhero, as a John Wayne-like figure and an astronaut. There are also cards depicting Trump playing golf and in a suit with gold bars.

Trump also posted a video to promote his cards promising the buyer that they “will join a very exclusive community, my community, that I think it’s something you’re going to like and you’re gonna like it a lot.”

The digital cards are being sold as NFTs or non-fungible tokens on his website and can be traded anywhere that accepts Polygon-based NFTs. To add extra incentive, Trump also added a sweepstakes element.

People who purchase a card will be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a dinner with Trump, a group cocktail hour at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, a one-on-one meeting and a round of golf with the 45th President, individual or group Zoom sessions, signed memorabilia or “Golden Edition” signed e-trading cards.

Anyone who buys 45 cards, which would be valued around $4,455, are guaranteed a ticket to attend a gala a dinner with Trump in South Florida.

This announcement comes only two weeks after Trump’s family real estate business was found guilty of tax evasion in Manhattan. This also comes in the midst of some unfavorable polls for Trump.

The former president is only favored by 31 percent of registered voters, which is his lowest rating in seven years according to a Quinnipiac University poll. It’s hard to believe that this won’t affect his digital card sales.
