comment Card with 10 tickets. What is it called?
I'm not clear on what the physical transaction is that is taking place here, and that tends to determine the name. If there are physical tickets torn out, it is a book of tickets. If it is a card which is scanned and not physically altered, it is a "pass". If it is a card which is punched or otherwise physically marked, it is, as OP and @SrJoven mentioned, a "punch card".
