TEKS/MINI CARDS
HOME - - - MERCHANDISE - - - TEKS/MINI CARDS

A set of miniature Dino-Riders trading cards known as “Teks” were released in the Philippines. These are rather obscure with a single card being included in packages of “Mr. Fruit” ice candy, which is a popular candy in the Philippines. Each card depicted the box art for the particular dinosaur on the front and a short write-up on the back referring to the “Dino-Warrior”. The cards are about the same size as the small baseball cards that are often included in Cracker Jack boxes. It appears that a total of 21 cards were produced (all of the Series 1 and Series 2 dinosaurs (except for the Brontosaurus) and none of the Series 3 or Ice-Age releases). The cards are made of cheap card stock and although the print quality isn’t great and there are misspellings and typos in some of the write-ups, these definitely have an old fashioned novelty/collectable appeal to them. What makes collecting the full set particularly difficult is that the candy packages did not have any markings on them to indicate that a Dino-Riders card would be included. Instead, each package included a randomly inserted mystery card that could be from Dino-Riders or from any number of other licensed properties. I currently have 20 of the 21 cards and I’m just missing the Quetzalcoatlus. If anyone has this card and would be willing to sell or trade, please e-mail me. Below are scans of the fronts and backs of all the teks for your viewing pleasure.
