Hi there everyone: Can anyone tell me the exact number of these cards issued? I know there were 3 different series produced perhaps?
I'm trying to figure out which ones I am missing. Thanks :?: :?:

Thanks

There are 18 in the Canadian lenticular set called "no line" by most Cracker Jack collectors. This set came out with a plastic booklet to hold the cards.

There are also 18 cards in the "line" set. This one had a poster that the cards could be glued to (eek!)

The third set is known as "bird on the back". It had 20 cards. It has always been rumored that there was also a plastic booklet issued to keep these cards in, but no collector has found one. I believe someone found an ad about the booklet's availability, but I do not have a copy. Hope this helps. You are getting close!

Hi everyone. I've been collecting these cards for a long time. Below are the actual titles of each subset of the 56 cards, how they were issued and what premiums were associated with each. The subset are easy to distinguish by the bird logo (Canadian Endangered Animals), flicker cards (Animal Champions) and finally the subset that is neither a flicker card nor bears the bird logo (Safari Adventure).

If anyone is looking for single cards, sets, cello packs or the red wallets, I can probably help you.
