I picked up more information on these Kentucky Derby cards. The three prototypes were distributed in limited quantities as "first proposed design draft" cards in a rack pack to the media, Churchill Downs, and the Kentucky Derby Festival in 1988 but they weren't for sale. For some reason officials at Churchill Downs approved the use of the Festival logo on the packaging but not on the cards themselves so none of the cards in the packs that were for sale later had the logos.

The photo shows the 3-card prototype version of the rack pack on the right and the 15-card product that was for sale on the left. It also allows you to see the different photos and typeface used for the Secretariat card. Neither the cards nor packaging are dated but the regular cards are said to have been released in 1991. The regular cards show winners of the derby from 1875 to 1990 according to Allender.

Here are three rare prototype cards for the Kentucky Derby Trading Cards Collector Series (no year) by Horse Star Cards. They are very similar to the regular base cards (12, 67, 99) in the set except they have a "Kentucky Derby Festival" logo on the front upper right corner (while the base cards do not) with slightly different back text as well. The photo on the #99 prototype is also different.

While the prototypes and base cards are undated, they are said to have been released in 1989 or 1990 or 1991. The date is unclear because they were released in different ways (sold by the pack, rack pack, and a limited edition binder set).
