It was 1988 when Bandai launched "Carddass" a series of anime and manga trading card collections. The name Carddass was given to the Bandai's vending machines and then used as a generic name for the cards sold by these vending machines. The fun fact is that the origin of this name is the name of the Japanese weather data gathering system, the AMeDAS (Automated Meteorological Data Acquisition System), launched at the same year, the idea was to make Carddass an information source for young people.
