Royal also issued a set of baseball cards at about the same time as their movie star card set. The baseball cards were issued over a three year period, from 1950 through 1952. The same cards were issued over the three years, but there were some text variations between the years. The movie star cards were issued over the same time period. Some of the movie cards show changes to the movies listed on the cards, probably done to show the latest movie for the star as time went on during the promotion. Only the movie star cards are checklisted here.
