Kindra Murphy started her career as collector of Milwaukee transit design four years ago. More recently, she's run into a catch.

She initially discovered a cache of Milwaukee weekly bus passes at a flea market just south of Minneapolis. Murphy, a graphic designer and associate professor at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, bought up a few hundred of the vintage weekly transit cards.
