Notes: Checklist incomplete. The cards listed in the following checklist may have been issued in more than one series by Amatller. Cards in this set have 3 identifying letters and numbers. The Num. on the far right is the card number, and it looks like there are 125 cards in this set.

The artist number in the middle seems to designate how many stars are represented in the set. For example, cards 1 And 2 are of Douglas Fairbanks and both cards say artist 1. Card number 3 starts a run of Mary Pickford cards and she is artist number 2 which run to cards number 7. Then card number 8 shows both Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks and as expected the back says Artista no. 1 Y 2, clarifying that artist one appears with artist 2 on that picture.

The Serie seems to relate to particular films. So film A had Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford in it. So all the cards from number 1-9 are designated Serie A D. W. Griffith only has one card number 10 and he is serie B. Serie C is a movie with Pola Negri and Antonio Moreno, which cover cards 12-20 and are therefore all Serie C and so on until they hit the letter Z. Then it goes AA, BB, CC, etc. and after ZZ starts AAA, BBB and for some reason CH CH CH.

Cards 1-55 have backs with blue writing while cards 56-125 have backs with black writing. The design of the two groups of backs are otherwise identical.
