These cards were sold as a boxed set at the gift shop of The Carnegie Museum of Natural History and includes a mixture of black & white and color photographs of several of the museum's fossils and fossil reconstructions. There are 36 different animals plus an un-numbered offer card for an enamel Tyrannosaurus lapel pin. The Protoceratops card which should be #34 has the number 3 printed on its reverse. I do not know if this was ever corrected.
