Wild Card is the team with the best record that is not a division winner. One Wild Card from each League(American & National) makes the playoffs so you have the 3 division winners plus the wild card team.

If a team is a wild card team, then 3. If not a wild card team, then 2.

The World Series started in 1903. The Championship Series was started in 1969. The Division Series started in 1981, and the Wild Card team was added in 1995.

Are cards from the 1985 Royals World Series team worth anything.

There are 4 teams in each the American, and National League that make the playoffs. Each league has three division winners, and a wild card team that play each other in the playoffs. The winning team of each league plays in the World Series in a best of 7 format. The team that wins 4 games first are the World Champions..
