To expand the topic slightly, the USPS has made several sets of trading cards. What I can find handy...

Here is an unfolded view of the front and back of the tri-fold "1995 Treasury of Stamp Cards" as partly shown in the original post:


And the front/back of a similar tri-fold from 1996:


(I seem to recall one other annual tri-fold in this era, but cannot find it right now, so it may not exist except in my imagination.)

From 1996, a set of pre-cut "Souvenir Stamp Saver Cards" corresponding to Scott 3105a-o, endangered wildlife issue. Photo shows wrapper, a pack of mounts in a glassine, a cover card, 15 animal cards, and an ending card. Second photo is the reverse side.



From 1998, a set of pre-cut "Stampers Savers Cards" corresponding to Scott 3238-3242. Photo shows a full pack, then the parts as the wrapper, a pack of mounts in a glassine, the cover card, the 5 cards related to the stamps, and an ending card. Second photo is the reverse side.



The Stampers Program was to encourage youth to collect, etc.

Informative, thanks !
Moreover, impressed how you managed to get such a large collection,
in such an image on SCF.
I presume a Camera on a tripod.

Australia produced similar rouletted cards I recall Antarctica set.
Did not last very long. Perhaps unpopular.

The USPS created stamped cards in an effort to get children into collecting stamps. This was a failure but it does open a new avenue for collecting with a definite beginning and a definite end.

USPS - They didn't learn the most important lesson that the card companies have in recent years. Print less and make them hard to find.
