There were 3 of these lenticular wildlife sets produced for use by Lowney's, the Canadian distributor for Cracker Jack. If you look at the backs of your cards, you will find that you have cards from 2 of the sets. One set (the "line on the back set") has 18 cards, another (the " no line on the back" set) also has 18 cards and the last set ("bird on the back" set) has 20 cards. There is yet another wildlife lenticular set of 8 cards that was used in Cracker Jack in the US. I am sure if you are a Cracker Jack Collectors Association member and post a message in the "Wanted" section of the forum, other members will be able to help you find these cards. They do show up on ebay occasionally. Hope this helps you.

Some of these cards were made to go in a little plastic book with a clear plastic sleeve for each card; others were to be affixed to a poster. Both the book and posters are scarce. They only had enough slots for the number of cards in the set. Happy collecting!

So sorry you have not had a reply--I have been gone. You should be able to search for the "Cracker Jack Collectors Association" on the web. If you join the CJCA, you will have access to much more of this forum that is not accessible to non-members. One of those sections is called "Wish List", where members can let other members know of items they are searching for. Hope this helps you.
