They are a set of three the tiger sign is missing. All that I have seen are heavy cardboard with a "foil like" covering.

Late 50's DP had a circus theme to their ads.
Still believe you will find they are foil covered paper

Thanks for the pic
My interpretation of foil is a lot thinner than these signs
what are they worth

Sometimes is just takes a few minutes to do a little research:

Here is an elephant one that sold for $69.00:
