Hi BlackD, I signed up during the KickStarter campaign where a metal (Copper for Colonel) Star Citizen Card was part of the deal. In order to get it, it was also a requirement to register/verify the KickStarter pledge details with RSI within a certain date (as backers could donate directly to RSI, they needed to consolidate their funds after the KickStarter/RSI fundraiser ended).
They also stated that the metal cards would only be offered to backers that pledged during the fundraiser campaign.
I still think that sending Star Citizen Cards (plastic or otherwise) to all backers is pretty awesome!
