A trading card is a small card featuring cartoons, comic book
characters, television series, or movie stills.Trading cards are collectable cards which are sold in
packs for the purpose of collecting, as opposed to cards which are
given away with other products. Each pack bought contains a small
selection of cards from the set. Most collectors buy a number of
packs, then swap duplicates with their friends in an attempt to
complete the set. Because trading cards often come in much larger
sets than cigarette or trade cards, a collector is likely to obtain
many duplicates before (if ever) collecting a full set.
The distribution of the cards in the packs is not always entirely
random. It is, perhaps, intentional that some cards are more common
than others. Certain (rarer) cards in some sets hence become more
valuable than others.

than in the United Kingdom, primarily because this hobby is of
American origin. They should not be confused with trade cards,
