This set of prehistoric animal cards were issued through the "Dinosaur Club" as a promotion of Illuminations educational products.  This set actually consists of 12 sub-sets containing 5 cards each and were sold in glossy paper envelopes that hung on j-hook displays at toy and variety stores. Card numbers are Series+Number. For example, 4-2 means Series 4, Card #2.
 
NOTE: This set was issued with and without numbers on the backs of the cards.  From my experience, the unnumbered series is much harder to find.
Series 1 = Meat Eaters 1, Series 2 = Meat Eaters 2, Series 3 = Meat Eaters 3, Series 4 = Plant Eaters 1, Series 5 = Plant Eaters 2, Series 6 = Plant Eaters 3, Series 7 = Horned Dinosaurs, Series 8 = Giant Dinosaurs, Series 9 = Dwarf Dinosaurs, Series 10 = Duckbills, Series 11 = Crested Duckbills, Series 12 = Armored Dinosaurs
