Remember Visa Cash and Mondex Cash Cards?
By the 3rd quarter of 2013, US credit card companies are
supposed to replace their familiar magnetic strip credit
cards with chip embedded (contact and contactless) crtedit
cards. These are already in place in the rest of the world
(that's why your credit card won't work in Europe) and look
a lot like the Cash cards that made their debut back in 1994
(Cancun card, Asia-Pacific set). Collectors always look for
the "originals" and this may be the boost we are looking for
in re-igniting the collector market for SVCs.
