Notes: Checklist Incomplete. Cards are blank-backed. Unnumbered. These all say "Greetings" on the front, although there is not really a set title on the cards. Cards from this set and the Greetings Film Stars, Bathing Suits set are often found together.

Note: Greetings cards can also be found in two larger sizes, including half-postcard (2 3/4" x 3 1/2") and postcard sized. According to a knowledgeable British collector, these were originally sold through a London company called F.P.F. Ltd. from the early 1950s to the beginning of the 1960s. The cards were advertised for sale in UK film magazines. The same images were not always featured on all 3 sizes. While there were 260 small cards issued, there were over 600 Greetings postcards issued.

There are differing levels of scarceness for these cards, probably because these cards were issued over several years with different cards being pulled and new ones added as the years passed and the fame of the stars changed. There are also minor text variations for some of the cards.
