Donald Trump’s baseball card-style NFT collection enjoyed a jump in price this week after the former president and 2024 election hopeful appeared on Tucker Carlson’s X-based interview show.
As reported by CoinDesk, in the hours after the viral interview, the 45,000-card polygon-based Trump Digital Trading Cards were selling for around 0.13 ether (about $215). This is a significant jump from last week’s 0.1 ether ($150) price tag.
OpenSea data shows that the collection, which originally launched last December for $99 apiece, has so far seen in excess of 17.5 ether ($29,000) in volume.
The cards depict the orange-hued billionaire in a series of heroic poses and outfits, including an astronaut, a soldier, George Washington, Elvis Presley, and a guitar-toting motorcycle rider. The original run sold out within 24 hours.
Those ‘lucky’ enough to snag themselves a card were also given the chance to win a dinner at Mar-a-Lago with Trump, a round of golf with the former president, or even a Zoom call.
Last month, in a revised filing, it was revealed that CIC Digital LLP, the company owned by Donald Trump that licenses his likeness for use on the NFTs, had less than $1,000 in its US bank account.
The firm did, however, hold an Ethereum wallet containing somewhere between $250,000 and $500,000.
Trump revealed CIC’s financial details alongside another 100 other income sources worth a combined $1.2 billion.
