Making a card game. Cards as prefabs vs generated classes

    I am working on a card game and am pretty new to unity.

    I like how when you make an object with a script you can fill out all the public properties from the editor and save it as a prefab. However having access to these cards as c# classes is preferable for me.
    What is the standard recommend way to do something like this, when filling out details of lots of similarly typed objects (like cards)
    Should I learn to work with a large set of prefabs?

    Is it easy enough to make an editor script that acts like the inspector but let's me save to a generated c# file? I have no experience with editor scripts at this time
