Ultimate exclusivity

CollectorFlick explains that the Honor & Glory trading cards are more exclusive than the 1776 Collection NFTs, because they are part of a limited edition print run, making them more scarce.

While the NFTs do have a limited supply, they are digital assets - which means it's easier for them to be faked or duplicated.

A spokesperson states: "If you've ever felt the glossy cardstock between your fingers or the thrill of completing a set, the ‘Salute to America 250’ trading cards are ideal - offering a window into memorable moments and key figures from American history."

Bring the past to life

The Salute to America 250 trading cards present American history through a combination of visual artwork and interactive elements. Each card focuses on specific events and figures from the nation's past, incorporating augmented reality technology into their design. This feature allows fans to access supplementary historical information and digital content via their smartphones.

The Salute to America 250 cards encompass a wide range of prominent figures from various eras of American history - providing a nuanced view of the nation's past, showcasing leaders, innovators, and change-makers, from Henry Ford to the Wright brothers.

CollectorFlick highlights the descriptions accompanying each card, which offer insights into the featured individuals' contributions to American society, while also painting a picture of the historical context that influenced their actions and decisions.

Choose the right card set

Single cards are available for collectors interested in specific figures or events, while three-card and five-card sets offer thematic groupings that tell broader historical narratives.

CollectorFlick's guide also includes an analysis of Melania Trump's 1776 Collection NFTs, which focus on American history and independence. It notes the different market characteristics of these digital assets compared to physical trading cards - pointing out that NFTs operate in a more volatile market environment.
