A friend's dad inherited these and I don't recognize them and am having a hard time coming up,with info on them. It seems to be a 16-card set
Any help would be appreciated also

All but the last two are from the General Mills cards issued in 1978. There are 18 in total in this set. The last two come from a set of General Mills stickers, also issued in 1978. There were 16 in this set.

Thank you! Did they come In the black folder? There were two different GM sets?

Yes, there were two different sets, one of cards and one of stickers. Most companies that issued Star Wars collectibles offered them with a purchase. They then figured if that many people were ready to buy their products to get the first set, why not issue a second set after the first ended? They would change some things about it so it would clearly be different, but they would then get the same people coming back to buy more of their products.

I don't know if they came in a black folder, but I would doubt it.
