    Remember when magazines would include floppy discs or, later, CDs? I have a few mini CDs, I think one came from a magazine.

    [There are 19,253 mini CDs listed on Discogs. https://www.discogs.com/search/?format_exact=CD&format_exact=Mini This would make a good collection]

    Has anyone seen a microSD card included with a magazine or a book?

    It seems to be very difficult to google.

    I'd never put one of those cheap pseudo records on a quality turntable with a top notch Grado cartridge on it. Tried it once. They'd never sit flat enough to track properly, and the stylus would shave off bits of plastic off of the record. You got what you paid for in this case.

    Googling did turn up one oddity.

    Astell & Kern Bluenote 75th anniversary limited edition boxset. Included 75 microSD cards in a display, a hi-res music player and a couple of books. All yours for $6000.

    Not a microSD card in a book. You could fit all 75 albums on one microSD card.

    They also did a boxset for Maria Callas that was originally priced at $1200 that you can get for about $300, if you are into opera.

    I can’t seem to find the Bluenote boxset for sale, but the music player is out there.
