What's Your Wallet Card?

What’s Your Wallet Card?

There is a new hashtag on Twitter that is being used by many collectors, and they’ve dubbed it #WalletCard.

It all started with a blog post from Twitter user @Breakdowncards. In the post, he writes:

"The idea is to pick a junk dupe of a card you like (but are willing to "sacrifice") and carry it around in your wallet for a full year, occasionally taking pictures of it on your travels or wherever, and share them on your blog."

The post sparked conversation among collectors both on the blog and on Twitter, and it was revealed that several collectors already keep a card of significance to them in their wallet. Those that don't mulled over which card they would choose.

Pictures began surfacing of Wallet Cards in different places, and the movement is still growing. It's become a fun and quirky way for collectors to engage each other in conversation about cards, and also about places they (and their cards) have been.

There is something intriguing—and even endearing about seeing trading cards in unusual places rather than seeing them how we normally do -- in a box, top loader or nine-pocket page.

The best part about Wallet Card is that it is easy to get involved, and there are no rules. Whether you participate or not, you can still follow the hashtag and see all types of cards on different adventures around the world.

Here's my Wallet Card for 2015:

Julie has been collecting sports cards off and on for over 25 years, but truly fell back into the hobby after attending the NSCC in Baltimore in 2010. She is a Roy Halladay supercollector, and also player collects Joe Flacco. In addition, she collects any card she finds appealing, no matter the player, team, or sport. A Philadelphia suburb native, she is a die-hard Phillies fan, and roots for the Eagles. As a Baltimore suburb resident, she also loves the Ravens and Orioles. You can find her in the Layton Sports Cards group break chat room often, and sometimes she’ll even bust a case there, too. Look for her on Twitter @FunnerHere.
