These cards were offered up on a major auction website in the September 2018 timeframe. The seller claimed that these are paintings (acrylic on hard artboard stock) that were to be used in an unpublished Bowman card set called "Animals of Yesterday". In all my years of non-sports collecting, I've never heard/read any speculation of this set and the auction write-ups for both cards state that the card would have been #55 in the set which does not make much sense. If anyone reading this has additional information pertaining to the legitimacy of this alleged unreleased Bowman set, please contact me (mmriley@dinofan.com).
