Posted By on Wed, Feb 22, 2012 at 8:57 AM

You can buy a lot of stuff from the New York Transit Museum store, and a lot of it makes sense: old tokens, maps and posters, Christmas ornaments with the color and letter or number of your favorite subway line. But some of it is just weird.

6. Subway Map Flip Flops
I dunno, these are just kind of weird. Also, no one would see the subway maps if you were wearing them.

7. Lawrence Street M Train Notecard
Well, this is just funny, because Lawrence Street is no longer a stop, and the M train doesn't go that way anymore. Own a piece of history!

8. Metrocard Tote Bag
Can you imagine the head-exploding metaness of taking a Metrocard out of your Metrocard tote bag at the turnstile? Also, who likes Metrocards this much?
