These cuff links are crafted from authentic miniature New York Metrocards. Like the old token, the Metrocard itself is scheduled to begin phase out in May of 2019. Set in sterling silver with a swivel finding, each miniature replica has been printed on the same stock and by the same press as the actual MetroCards. Measures approximately 7/8" x 5/8".
|What's the Story||Introduced in 1994, the MetroCard revolutionized transit in the city, boosting ridership, making bus-to-subway transfers possible in 1997 and introducing bonus value and unlimited ride cards the following year.|
