2. Supreme MetroCard
One of the most popular limited-edition MetroCards is now on sale on eBay with a price tag that ranges anywhere from $5.00 to $900.00. Strikingly similar to Barbara Kruger’s style, the Supreme MetroCard reportedly “shook” New York City when it debuted. Supreme, a vastly popular cult streetwear brand, announced its partnership with the MTA earlier this year on February 20th.
Before infiltrating eBay, they were purchasable at Supreme stores and the following stations: Broadway-Lafayette, Queens Plaza, Marcy Avenue, Atlantic Avenue, Prince Street, Spring Street, Union Square, and the 125th Street 2/3 train. The demand for the cards was so intense that long lines, sometimes controlled by a police presence, formed in front of the vending machines distributing them.
