Baseball Card

A card containing the name, picture and statistics of a baseball player. Rare cards and first-year cards of players who later became famous (called "rookie cards") are often valuable as collectibles. A baseball card is an example of a valuable but illiquid asset because it can be difficult to sell to a non-collector.
