These cards were issued in cellophane packettes which were inserted into packages of Ralston Purina (General Mills) cereals such as Cookie Crisp (see images).  Along with the cards was an offer to obtain Dinosaur Puzzles in exchange for three UPC symbols from cereal packages or one UPC symbols from a cereal package plus $1.50. <P> NOTE: there is rumored to exist a Spanish version of these cards which have the same illustrations only the backs of the cards are written in Spanish.  This makes sense as the cereal package I own (see images) has a sticker written in Spanish which advertises these free cards.
