"SkyBox International was a company that made trading cards. Along with the
baseball and auto racing and other sports cards they published, they also
had several series of Star Trek trading cards. At some point, they merged
with Fleer, another major trading card company. They produced a set of
cards for each of the first six seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation,

each set contain Klingon text and an English translation; the cards give
credit to Marc Okrand for the Klingon. In a couple of cases, we have seen
new vocabulary on the cards before it was mentioned anywhere else. There
are also a few apparent examples of [new] grammatical usage, though it's
hard to be certain from such a small sample. There is also a Klingon
language card in a Deep Space Nine trading card set."
