Washington, D.C.'s Metrorail transportation system said Thursday that it has sold 1,500 commemorative fare cards this week for President Obama's second inauguration.

The organization that runs subway trains in the capital, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), said earlier this week that it was accepting pre-sale payments for a special version of its SmarTrip fare cards that will mark Obama being sworn in again on Jan. 21, 2013.

WMATA tweeted Thursday that 1,500 of the cards, which feature Obama's picture and include the phrase "America Makes History Again," have already been sold.
