OLD Credit Card Just Appeared on EQ Report

Equifax just added an old  closed JCPenney credit card that  I opened 10/2000 with a 2/2010 update. I'm not complaining.  The account  have no late payments.  I wonder what could have caused that.  I'm sure my FICO score has increased now.   TU and EX never stopped reporting the account.
