CARDS 

This page is for post cards and other similar paper products such as trading cards, playing cards and sports cards.

¬†A postcard or post card is a rectangular piece of thick paper or thin cardboard intended for writing and mailing without an envelope. In some places, it is possible to send them for a lower fee than for a letter. Stamp collectors distinguish between postcards (which require a stamp) and postal cards (which have the postage pre-printed on them). While a postcard is usually printed by a private company, individual or organization, a postal card is issued by the relevant postal authority. The United States Postal Service defines a postcard as: rectangular, at least 3¬Ĺ inches high √ó 5 inches long √ó 0.007 inches thick and no more than 4¬ľ inches high √ó 6 inches long √ó 0.016 inches thick;[1] (in metric; 12.7 cm √ó 8.9 cm). However, some postcards have deviated from this (for example, shaped postcards).
  The study and collecting of postcards is termed deltiology..

A trading card (or collectible card) is a small card, usually made out of cardboard or thick paper, which usually contains an image of a certain person (fictional or real) and a short description of the picture, along with other text (statistics, attacks, or trivia). Trading cards are traditionally associated with sports; baseball cards are especially well-known but all sports are now represented. Cards dealing with other subjects are often considered a separate category from sports cards, known as non-sports trading cards. These often feature cartoons, comic book characters, television series, or movie stills.
 As with playing cards, which they generally resemble, trading cards are often used to play various games. In the 1990s, cards designed specifically for playing games became popular enough to develop into a distinct category of collectible card games. These tend to use either fantasy subjects or sports as the basis for gameplay
