The contacts on the card were probably securely inserted into the contacts in the camera thus providing some protecton.  Still amazing.

I'd like to see a picture of the flash card itself.  Maybe the contacts are all corroded, but still functional...

But you're not washing your clothing in salt water. Salt water corrodes almost everything!
