Legend of Mana Merchandise – Phone card and Zipper combo ???

The merchandising for this game never ceases to confuse and amaze me. Here you have a really nice looking little package, covered in Rabites, with one of the necklace Rabites (but not pewter anymore) hanging down on what is supposed to be a zipper pull.

The little cutout in the middle there is actually a phone card. Something highly useful and collectible in Japan, but otherwise quite foreign to many people.

Why was this combo made? I don’t know, but it’s actually pretty uncommon to find anymore. I’ve seen the phone card listed on its own a few times, but usually you’ll find the whole combo together. Price? Maybe $30 seems to be what I’ve seen it go for. Strangely, phone cards by themselves are quite popular among different collectors in Japan. Trials of Mana has a ton of phone cards from 1995 that regularly go for around $300 or more, and I’ve given up on ever collecting those as the competition is quite steep.
