150px-Eurocard Old Logo
Eurocard was a credit card, introduced in 1964 by a Swedish banker in the Wallenberg family as an alternative to American Express. In 1968 it signed a deal with Mastercard so that their cards were accepted by each other's networks and this eventually led to a joint venture known as Maestro International in 1992 and merged in 2002. Its operations were relocated to Belgium in the late 1960s and the card became the dominant brand in North and Central Europe between 1970 and 2002. It was eventually replaced by the Mastercard brand in most locations, but its logo is still used in some countries.
