The current craze of card collecting amongst the youngest members of the family is the World Explorer cards from a supermarket giant. I am not promoting this, but there is little wonder that curious kids would want to collect this series of cards.
Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) is a conceptual art project initiated by the Swiss artist M. Vänçi Stirnemann in 1997. He called it a Collaborative Cultural Performance. Artist Trading Cards are 2
1⁄2 by 31⁄2 inches (64 mm × 89 mm) in size, the same format as modern trading cards (hockey cards or baseball cards). They are self-made unique works or small series, signed and dated on the reverse by the artist/producer, (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist_trading_cards)
