Telephone cards: a world to collect

phonecards

Welcome to the new Phonecard Shop site!

The new version of my old site is finally online, totally redesigned and with a lot of new features. Actually there are 4043 phonecards available for sale, but I’m adding more and more every month, so please check it often to see the updates!

Phonecards are plastic cards usually with the size of a credit card, used to make telephone calls with public payphones. Due to the proliferation of cellular phones and other communication media, they are not used as widely today, but, starting at the beginning of the ’90 of past century they have become a hot collectible item such as stamps, coins and so on.
In this site you’ll find a huge selection of worldwide collectible phonecards, but of course you must be aware that they cannot be used to phone anymore as they are already used or expired.

New to Phonecard Collecting?

There has been a large variety of phonecards issued during the years, so many that you can even decide to specialize your collection. Some suggestions? One of the most popular speciality is to collect one phonecard for each Country and each different technology, but you may also decide to follow one of the several thematics according to the image printed on each card, or to collect only the first issues from each Country, and so on.
You may learn many things about this hobby just visiting my site The World of Phonecards, full of information.
