People who can't afford luxury cars and private jets can still travel with a bit of NBA flair. Starting this week, Subway riders in New York can get NBA All-Star Game-themed MetroCards.

The MTA makes between 4 million and 5 million MetroCards every month and will produce 600,000 of the All-Star cards. 

The front of the card uses the official 2015 All-Star Game logo, while the back of the card is made to look like the wall of a Subway station.

All-Star events are being held at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan and Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which are both connected by a variety of Subway lines. 

The cards are available at 13 of the system's busiest stations. For a real New York experience, complain about how much they cost.
