These "Fortune Teller" cards were apparently issued sometime between 1979 & 1983 and consist of a thin plastic film with a simplistic sketch which is affixed to a piece of cardboard.  According to the directions on the reverse of the cardboard backing, one was to breathe on one's palm (e.g., adding moisture/heat), then peel the plastic off the cardboard, and place the plastic on the warmed palm.  One's "fortune" was determined by how much the plastic film curled in one's palm as described  on the backs of the cardboard.  I've been told that the Fortune Teller cards were issued sequentially in three colors; first in blue, then in green, and finally in red.  Being a dinosaur enthusiast, I wonder why the Cracker Jack folks titled the T-rex card (I think that's what it is) "Dinosaur" whereas the other dinosaur is titled by its genus (i.e., Stegosaurus).
