Our first question upon hearing about the Supreme-MTA collab, which launched Monday: Why would you buy a Supreme-branded Metrocard? Riding the subway is already prohibitively expensive, and yet enough hypebeasts ponied up the $5.50/card so they could swipe in style that it caused a frenzy that's still going strong.
Here's the latest, per the NYCT Subway Twitter account:
All limited run Supreme branded MetroCards have been released in-system.— NYCT Subway (@NYCTSubway) February 22, 2017
If the underground hysteria is too much for you, there are currently “more than ten” available on Ebay, if you’re jonesing enough to drop $18.88, before shipping, for a keepsake. And on Craigslist, of course, we see a few folks trying to make afew bucks($28-$40).

Supreme is the brand that drops stupid shit periodically to make sure they still got the hypebeasts.— ginger rothstein (@cynsation_) February 20, 2017
@NYCTSubway How about you bring up the subway to, 'supreme' status? 70,000 delays a month? Step it up— Trevor Ricci (@TrevorRicci1) February 22, 2017
@NYCTSubway if Supreme is a skateboarding clothing brand then why are the metrocards so hot? Shouldn't they be skating not taking the train— Virginia Borelli (@vaterps71) February 21, 2017
