I still have my first credit card from 1986 but the store is closed, it was a Lazarus card. I would use it to buy Swatches as they were released.

I no longer have mine. I believe the first credit card I got was in March 1997, a VISA card with Chase. This may or may not be correct since I graduated from HS in 1994. This is the oldest one that currently shows on my credit report. I closed it in 2006, and got it up to $11k limit. I know for sure my first AMEX was a Delta Skymiles amex (the clear one with the wavy gravy colors), in 1998. That one was included in BK in '09.
