Just from looking at the Pokemon card, is it possible to determine what series the card is from e.g. Hidden Fates, Steam Siege etc.? The copyright states the year but not which release quarter the card is from.

Each card contains a logo indicating which set it is from. This image was taken from here. A list of all the set logos is available here. I know link only answers are discouraged but there are many of these and can easily be googled.

In difference to @StartPlayer's answer all the cards I own have expansion icon in lower left corner as can be seen on the the card detail shown below.

Instead of having expansion list, you could use Pokémon TCG Card Dex official application:

  1. Google Play
  2. App Store

There you can search your card and see name of expansion on card detail: Pikachu card detail with expansion written - Hidden Fates

You can also use this application as a list of expansions and just compare expansion icon.
