Your available credit will drop which could afect total utilization. If it's a card you've had for a long time it could lower your AAoA (average age of accounts).

I would suggest keeping it, using it once a year or so to keep it active, & otherwise resort it to the sock drawer. It doesn't hurt to keep it...
