Yes, legally it is still valid. However, there is the possibility that upon re-entry into the US, you may be questioned about having the old card and threatened that you need to renew it. They will allow you back in, but in the future, it is a good idea to renew it to avoid issues such as these.

Have a safe trip.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
