Each CD was included in random packets and also given away as a promotion with purchase of Coca-Cola products. Despite on the packets and discs reading "DBZ Set 1", no further sets were ever released.

Here's the official website for the picture cards on funimation.com from web archive.

Unfortunately, the images on the archive won't load, but the text confirms the Coca-Cola promotion.
