the below function  will only export name, phones and email

(defun org-contacts-vcard-format (contact)
  "Formats CONTACT in VCard 3.0 format."
  (let* ((properties (caddr contact))
	 (name (org-contacts-vcard-escape (car contact)))
	 (n (org-contacts-vcard-encode-name name))
	 (email (cdr (assoc-string org-contacts-email-property properties)))
	 (tel (cdr (assoc-string org-contacts-tel-property properties)))
	 (ignore-list (cdr (assoc-string org-contacts-ignore-property properties)))
	 (ignore-list (when ignore-list
			(org-contacts-split-property ignore-list)))
	 (head (format "BEGIN:VCARD\nVERSION:3.0\nN:%s\nFN:%s\n" n name))
	 emails-list result phones-list)
    (concat head
	    (when email (progn
			  (setq emails-list (org-contacts-remove-ignored-property-values ignore-list (org-contacts-split-property email)))
			  (setq result "")
			  (while emails-list
			    (setq result (concat result  "EMAIL:" (org-contacts-strip-link (car emails-list)) "\n"))
			    (setq emails-list (cdr emails-list)))
	    (when tel (progn
			(setq phones-list (org-contacts-remove-ignored-property-values ignore-list (org-contacts-split-property tel)))
			(setq result "")
			(while phones-list
			  (setq result (concat result  "TEL:" (org-link-unescape (org-contacts-strip-link (car phones-list))) "\n"))
			  (setq phones-list (cdr phones-list)))

This may be difficult, I use org-contacts and use a elisp function to
merge all the contacs which have  same name. then export contacts to a
vcard file.
