The new NFT collection will give users a chance to own an actual piece of the Trump mugshot suit and tie, and access to dinner at his resort.

Former United States president Donald Trump has unveiled a new non-fungible token (NFT) collection for $99, called the “Mugshot Edition”. The collection references the billionaire businessman’s legal issues, allowing Trump to monetize the problem.

As part of a new sale of “digital trading cards” NFT collection he launched late last year, Trump is selling the Mugshot Edition NFTs along with pieces of a suit he wore when he was arrested in Georgia last year.

The Mugshot NFT Edition

According to the Mugshot Edition website, the photo is significant because it’s the first-ever mugshot of a US president. The website also advertises Trump’s physical stance in the photo, describing his “furrowed brow” and a “determined gaze which says he’ll never surrender”. The text adds:

“This card is not just a keepsake; it’s a piece of history and a testament to resilience. It stands as a symbol of President Trump’s unwavering commitment and his enduring dedication to the American Dream.”

The website also states that MEARS, one of the largest sports memorabilia authenticators, has authenticated the Mugshot Suit. MEARS says the suit is “The Most Historically Significant Artifact in United States History”.

Buyers who purchase 47 Trump Mugshot digital trading cards ($4,653) in a single transaction will get a physical card and a piece of the actual suit Trump wore in the photo. In addition, the buyer will join several others for dinner with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s luxury resort club in Palm Beach, Florida. The specification on 47 cards is likely a nod to Trump becoming the 47th president of the US if elected into office next year.

People who buy 100 NFTs will get a one-of-one digital trading card and two VIP dinner tickets. These people, in addition to a card with an actual piece of the suit, will get a second card with a piece of the suit and tie. Notably, 25 of the 225 “Suit and Tie Cards” will be autographed by Trump. However, the bonus offer for people who buy 100 digital trading cards will only be available to 200 people.

The website only specifies a venue but makes no point about date or timing. However, attendees will receive at least 30 days notice to plan a trip to Palm Beach. The site also notes that the sale is not political and has nothing to do with Trump’s campaign.

Previous Trump Collections

In December last year, Trump launched NFT Trading Cards, featuring the former president in fantasy poses and consumes. There were 45,000 cards minted on the Polygon network and selling for $99. The collection sold out in less than 24 hours and netted over $4 million.

In April, a second series comprising 47,000 cards at the same price also sold out in 24 hours. The series featured varying levels of rarity and recorded sales of about $4.65 million. Like the Mugshot Edition, those with 47 cards won dinner with Trump, while purchasing 100 NFTs got buyers dinner and a unique collectible.
