Employee retirement cards[ | ]

Hasbro, Wizards of the Coast, and associated company employees who have had long tenures are occasionally given special, personalized Magic cards as a gift on their retirement. These cards are designed to celebrate the individual person's achievements but are given in a volume that could also be considered promotional cards.
