The limited-edition cards feature artwork related to the life and career of the former President. These 36 cards feature Trump in various fantasy-style costumes—an astronaut, a fighter pilot, a red carpet celebrity, and more.
Memorabilia cards and autographs, highlighting even Trump’s reality TV show, as well as Trump-signed NFTs round out the rarities in the set.
