Issuing Company: Unknown - Dutch Gum Card|
Country of Issue: Sweden
Year of Issue: 1950s
Number of Cards in Set:
Card Size: 1 3/4" x 2 5/8"
Issued as insert with what product: Gum
Notes: Blank-backed, no company name listed. This is an anonymous set without numbering. I gave it the name "Dutch Unnumbered Jazz Stars" because the cards all show jazz music stars. This set is known as Jazzbilder in Sweden and The Netherlands.
The cards in this checklist all show no studio in the caption, just the name of the star. This set looks very much like the Anonymous Studio Set 1 (Symbolbilder) set, just without the studio symbol in the caption. There were most certainly additional jazz stars in this set that also contained a symbol in the caption, such as Turk Murphy, Bengt-Arne Wallin, The Ames Brothers, Billy May, Bunk Johnson, etc. Because it is difficult at this point in time to distinguish the film stars with studio symbol from the jazz stars with studio symbol, all the stars with a studio symbol are listed in the Symbolbilder checklist and all the stars without a studio symbol are listed in this checklist.
This set appears to have been printed more than once. There is a printing of this set with very clear pictures of the jazz stars and another printing that shows them very fuzzy, much lower quality.
