MetroDeck upcycles discarded NYC MTA Subway cards into playing cards and the result is pretty surprising. Good looking and definitely a conversation starter, every card has been gathered at random, after having been purchased, used, and discarded, and then hand silk screened with enamel ink. Some have been signed or otherwise marked, making each one unique and even more fun to include in your game of chance. But at $550 a set, you’re probably better off putting on your best bum suit and collecting 52 of them yourself.
