3-D card
 A card that appears to be three-dimensional as it is moved. Usually used to describe Kellog's and Sportflics issues made by this process.
 
500 Home Run Club
 A group of baseball players who have hit 500 career home runs. 500 home runs is a magic number, of sorts, that not only separates the great home run hitters, but also more or less ensures induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
