I have only recently discovered them myself, and was totally amaized that
they would be a hot collectable item. In a practicle sense, Phone cards are
prepaid calling cards. You get one for...say $10.00...with X amount of time
on them. That way when you are making a long distance call you are not
feeding the phone a bunch of quarters.
When the card's credits are used up you can either call the card issurer for
purchasing more credits on that card with Visa or Mastercard or keep the
"used" card as a keepsake. Thousands of different cards have been issues
with everything from NBA Basketball Players to Baden Powell Scouting Pictures
on them. I was trying to get info on the practicle side (I don't plan to
collect them) for our summer camp.
