“A Sucker Born Every Minute”

Those words uttered 100 years ago ring more accurate today than they did when first uttered.

Are you into trading cards…..football, baseball, basketball, etc?

If you are then there is a new scam for those with more money than brains.

Donald Trump teased an upcoming “major announcement” Wednesday on Truth Social, and on Thursday he unveiled it. His 2024 running mate, perhaps? Nope, Trump is selling what he calls “digital trading cards” featuring none other than himself, reports the Washington Examiner. “These limited edition cards feature amazing ART of my Life & Career! Collect all of your favorite Trump Digital Trading Cards, very much like a baseball card, but hopefully much more exciting,” reads his social media post. The NFT cards cost $99 each, and examples on the CollectTrumpCards.com website feature Trump as a superhero, an astronaut, a NASCAR driver, etc.

Those who buy one are entered into a sweepstakes with a prize of having dinner with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, and those who buy 45 cards (Trump was the 45th president) are guaranteed a dinner invitation. “Buy one and you will join a very exclusive community,” says Trump in an accompanying video, per Mediaite. “It’s my community and I think it’s something you’re going to like and you’re going to like it a lot.” One digital version of the president is adorned in a Superman-like costume that features the letter “T” instead of “S.” When he recovered from COVID as president, Trump reportedly pitched the idea of ripping off his dress shirt to reveal a Superman shirt underneath.

Being reported (not verified by me) that the mailing address for the company that is issuing these cards is Mar-a-Lago.

This endeavor will probably go down with the Trump steaks, water, wine, vodka as dismal failures.

Any thoughts on this endeavor?

  1. The buzz on Twitter is that you never fully own them. If you resell, a percentage goes back to Trump or the licensing agent. Also read many people are having trouble accessing their purchase. 😂

  2. GM!! By this time you may be aware that they sold out!! — in less than 48 hrs!! And he raised, I think close to $4.5 mil … also heard that it may be money laundering!
    Not fully aware bc I’m away on vacay … but yep, a sucker every minute! 🙄 — the sucker bring those who ‘bought’ digital crap — not he whose pocket is lined up again!
    Chuq — what’s this? What’s your nation coming to?

    1. I saw that as well….and yes it does sound like money laundering…..I do not know any more. Enjoy your vacay and be well and be safe…..chuq
