Encyclopedia > Trading cards

A trading card (or collectible card) is a small card which is intended for trading and collecting. Such items are argued to have great potential for appreciation and can become collector's items. Trading cards are traditionally associated with sports; baseball cards are especially well-known. Modern non-sports trading cards often feature cartoons, comic book characters, or television series. They can also be associated with trading card games.


In some jurisdictions, trading cards (particularly baseball cards) are distributed by police officers to children in order to boost public relations.

Collectible card game - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1089 words)
Frequently, the cards which comprise a player's deck are also in and of themselves a resource, with the frequency of cards moving from the deck to the play area or player's hand being tightly controlled.
Relative card strength is often balanced by the number or type of basic resources needed in order to play the card, and pacing after that may be determined by the flow of cards moving in and out of play.
Players select which cards will compose their deck from the available pool of cards - unlike traditional card games such as poker or UNO where the deck's content is limited and pre-determined.
