"Tell me what you collect, tell me how you collect, and I will tell you who you are."
Jean Willy Mestach
This section of The Dinosaur Fan presents sets by the category into which they fit. I define the term category to mean the general type (e.g., cards, stickers) or purpose (e.g., packaging, display) for which the sets were produced. I created these categories for summary and reporting purposes and have done my best to associate sets as logically as possible. As you can well imagine, some sets can potentially fit into a variety of categories. For the purposes of this website, I have assigned one and only one category to each set. Sets consisting of “odd ball” items (e.g., booklets, hats, glasses, novelties) are listed under the "Miscellaneous" category.
