me being crazy credit carrying source my mind is always running credit I view differently so looking at your portfolio I would notice your BB&T. yes the black citi would catch my eye at first, then I would be like that doesn't have rewards so either they hopefully are using a BT on it or they don't know.
amex, i think i wonder if they know they can ask for a 3x cli with a sp but otherwise not so impressed that someone has it because we know they are not quite so hard to get anymore.
best buy store I would think in my head they can't be terrible credit because they don't have the stupid mc i have... but they have also changed up the cards a bit so I now have the new card image in my head if I see it to know it's different
so back to BB&T, but only because im from the midwest and they were my primary bank before moving and had a good friend that was regional manager and dealt with their credit products a lot... they are not easy! but once in!!!
BTW you have overdraft line of credit with them OP?

I'm talking about the cards that get a "wow" at Food Lion, Applebees, Ruby Tuesdays, or maybe the local golf course. If you were a cashier at a similar establishment, what cards would wow you?
Nothing would. The particular card a customer uses would be the least of my concerns with a job like that. If you want a card with "wow" then pick the ones that do it for you. Don't obsess over what others may or may not think.

My Zync has gotten more attention that any other cards I have (even the AMEX Plat). The CSP not that much
Well the Zync is kinda exclusive now; you can't apply for it

If we go by comments (rather than "prestige", scare quotes because IMO, anyone impressed by your credit card isn't worth impressing!) then my Cap One platinum, because it is personalized with a photo (a pet because I am just so totally out there and original). That just makes it look different from other credit cards.

Of all the cards I've used, the Zync has gotten the most positive comments, especially in the beginning. I used to get, "I've seen the Black, but not the White."
