A sketch of the New York City skyline that Donald Trump drew for a charity event in 2005 sold at auction Thursday for $29,184.

The starting bid for the item was $9,000.

The artwork was described by Nate D. Sellers Auctions as being in “near fine condition,” other than bearing a “[l]ight smudge and abrasion to right side.” It depicts Trump Tower in the middle of a row of skyscrapers, with two wavy lines, presumably either the Hudson or East River, below it.

The 11 bidders were comprised of “Trump admirers, Presidential memorabilia collectors and investors,” said a Sellers Auctions official in an email to The Washington Times. As a matter of policy, the auction house does not disclose the names of its winning bidders, he said.
