Metrodeck playing cards are compiled from used New York City subway fare cards

How many of you commute by the New York City Metro? Well, travel or not, how about treasuring a souvenir that relates to the extensive New York subway system? Here’s a collectible that you might want to treasure either out of pride or newfound respect – a Metrodeck that has been compiled literally of used and discarded metro cards. The owners to these would have been anyone – from a visitor to a city resident, cards that exhibit authenticity with markings and signatures. Each card is an exclusive piece, distinct from the other, with its own narrative potential.

Retailing at $550, the face cards have been inspired by landmarks across the five boroughs of New York City. To ensure durability, the found MTA MetroCards have been hand silk-screened by its designer at his Brooklyn studio.
