Default Trading cards?

While eating dinner with the kids tonight my son asked if I ever collected baseball cards. I told him not really, but it got me to thinking, (bout time something did). Somebody should come out with engine trading cards. There could be a picture on the front and then some info about it on the back. Maybe this could get some younger folks into the hobby. We could try to collect cards to match your engine. The rarer the engine, the fewer number of cards made. Do you think this would catch on?

Not so much TRADING cards as collector cardS but there was a series of tractor collector cards done by a magazine. I have them all.
Nobody has ever done this for ENGINES!....... ......or steam engines as far as that goes.......

I was thinking something Official like from Ertel or some other company that makes collectables. These would have a limited run. In time they might be worth a couple dollars.
