Tom Merritt - UIUC IDs

Tom Merritt is a tech reporter and host on TWiT - This Week in Tech - the podcast network of Leo Laporte. Tom is also an alumnus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, my alma mater. He recently was showing some old identification cards on the live TWiT stream, and one of them was of his old I-Card, the U of I college ID. A far cry from today’s version, seen below.
