Tobacco Products Corp. Film Stars (C142 Strollers Canada)

Issuing Company: Tobacco Products Corp.
Country of Issue: Canada
Year of Issue: 1922
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set: 220
Card Size: 1 3/8" x 2 1/2"
Issued as insert with what product: Cigarettes

Notes: Checklist Incomplete. Backs for the first 200 cards have biographical text. Backs for numbers 101-200 can found in three different ways, with no mention of Tobacco Products Corp., with Tobacco Products Corp. and Montreal address at bottom, or with Tobacco Products Corp. with Hamilton address at bottom and Series 4 mentioned. Backs for numbers 201-220 have no biographical info. These appear to have the same numbers as the American Stroller cards. The backs are different, but that is all. The American Card Catalog number for this set is C142.

The backs mention an album that can be sent for to hold the cards. The album exists, and is in black with gold lettering. It measures 12 3/4" across and 8" tall. The album holds 10 cards per page, in two rows of 5. There are 10 gold rectangles per page, and these are meant to frame the cards when they are pasted into the album. The cards were meant to be pasted in. There are 12 pages to hold 120 cards.

The first 100 numbers have a different design than the next group of numbers. The cards in the first 100 numbers have a brown tone, and the captions have only the actors' name. The higher number cards (101-200) are in black and white, and also contain a Starring In line beneath the actors' name. Card numbers 201-220 picture unidentified Mack Sennett girls. Mack Sennett actress identifications are courtesy of Mack Sennett experts Steve Rydzewski and Harry Garvin.

Strollers put out a bunch of newspaper advertising to support their movie star cards and their cigarettes while these cards were being issued. Here is an interesting Canadian newspaper ad for Stroller's cigarettes from January 16, 1923 discussing a limerick contest involving the movie star cards. Here is another newspaper ad from March 1924 referring to another contest and encouraging movie star card trading. Thanks to Bobby Robinson for providing these ads.

Date info: The Canadian newspaper ad indicates these cards were being issued in early 1923. It is likely they were first introduced a little before that, probably in late 1922. They were still being issued in 1924 (possibly the higher numbers by that time), and the large cards were being issued then, too, as indicated by a 1924 newspaper ad.
