Thanks guys! And yeah I guess I'm kind of in that garden, though I would not say I'm doing like the FICO people. Just, um, letting these cards build some use before I app for the two others I want (BCP and Freedom) with these companies. I think early December would be a good time to app for those.

Nice work. Enjoy the AAoA bump! Old Amex's are anchor cards for anything new in your portfolio. Because my new BCP card is dated back to '88, it allowed me to get a bunch of other new stuff and still keep my AAoA over 6.5 years.
Cards:
American Express Platinum (NPSL)
Penfed Platinum Reward Visa ($28K)
Chase Freedom Visa ($25K)
Fidelity American Express ($20K)
American Express Blue Cash Preferred ($20K)
Bank of America Cash Rewards MasterCard ($20K)
Citi Thank You Preferred Visa ($9.5K)
Chase Sapphire Preferred ($7.5K)
US Bank Cash + Visa Signature ($7K)
Discover IT ($4K)

Once it's on your account online. It's basically official. Did you look to see what your credit report said (assuming it's not a biz card)?

I was suddenly backdated online from 2012 to 1993 and I have no idea why. My newest card arrived dated 93. So, I called for a replacement card due to damage on one of my other cards to see what date what wuld be on it. 1993! Simple. Now these are all biz cards so I couldn't verify anything with my credit reports
