Yes, but there are many of us who haven't and don't have that connection.
I would buy one that had my name on it, because that makes it more personal to me, also I would be more likely to buy ones for friends because I would think "hmmm maybe my friend John would like one"

Many of us who learned to program in the punched card days have fond
memories of cards and keypunches, even though none of us would ever go
back to that method. :-) The card represents a lengthy era of data
processing history, even though it's being presented as a display hack.
We all used to do these at one time or another. Finding cards is not too
difficult (small batches are always available on Ebay), but how many
working keypunches are still around? I suspect the old timers will love

Don't mean to interject here, but one other thing that makes a festival is having something where you can sell pictures of something, such as, ASCII Art.
With just a PC , printer and internet connection to access the ascii artwork online(or download beforehand) you can sell them for a couple of bucks each. There's even a website that will convert gif's, jpg's into ascii pictures.
This is always nostalgic
What's even better is ascii artwork t-shirts :)
