This card set is based on a book titled, ‘Platos Voladores Al Ataque!’ (Flying Saucers Attack) written by Héctor Germán Oesterheld (Illustrated by Alberto Breccia)which chronicles the invasion of the planet Earth (a la the ‘Mars Attacks!’ cards issued by Topps); it’s near complete destruction, and subsequent salvation through the efforts of a group of Argentineans. Having not read this book, I do not know exactly how dinosaurs and other extinct creatures figured into the plot. This card set seems to be exceptionally difficult to obtain due to the original method of distribution. Reportedly, a single Platos Voladores Al Ataque! card was included in packs of ‘Super Futbol’ (soccer) cards which also contained three soccer cards. An album was issued for the soccer cards but a separate album was not issued for the Platos Voladores Al Ataque! cards which in turn meant that there was no official checklist available to those who tried to collect the Platos Voladores Al Ataque! cards.

The complete history of this set and the original 1971 set can be found in the website ‘historietasArgentinas.com’ (http://historietasargentinas.com/historietas.html).
