Notes: Checklist incomplete. Unnumbered. There are at least three different front designs for Albatros cards. They are probably three different sets. These front designs are as follows:

Name in rectangular box within picture frame
Name below picture frame
Name inside picture frame

For the Name below picture frame type, there are at least two different back designs. The first two types above have also been seen with blank backs.

An album was issued with this set. It appears the album was meant to hold the Name in rectangular box within picture frame type, with additional blank spaces at the back for more cards. Collector Amit Benyovits acquired an original album full of cards, and inside were cards of all types listed above, along with a card from the Cafe Vog set. This indicates that all these sets were issued at around the same time or consecutively.

Thanks to Amit Benyovits for help with this checklist.
