These Metrodeck Playing Cards Are Compiled From Used NYC Subway Fare Cards

 

MoMa has decided put used MetroCards into action. Cards are gathered at random after being discarded by users. You can buy a pack of face cards for the price of $550, because of the nature of the cards, MoMa recommends not to use them for play. Designed and hand silk-screened by a Brooklyn-based designer, face cards are inspired by NYC landmarks of all five boroughs(yes that includes Staten Island). Each deck is a numbered limited edition.
