Dinosaur Cigarette Cards & Trade Cards

Dinosaur fossils have been known of for thousands of years. Initially it was thought that they were the remains of dragons or giants killed by the Great Flood. It was not until the 19th century that the study of dinosaurs really took off. These long extinct creatures have now been given a new lease of life through popular culture. Although only a few sets were issued prior to WW2, many trading cards sets were issued from the 1950s-1970s.

I've listed a small selection of dinosaur cigarette card and trade card sets below. I've provided scans of a sample card from each set and tried to include all card titles.
