For a rather cramped design, I need a way to hold a MicroSD card in a "standing"/"upright" position (90° to the PCB, rather than "flat"/"parallel" like most sockets). The card will be plugged and removed very seldomly, probably only once, so I don't care too much about the usability aspects of such a design.

Can anybody point me at a socket like this, if it even exists at all?

If you cant find one, you could try making a very small pcb that holds a SMD SD card holder, with an edge connector on the PCB that can orient it vertically.
