Notes: Checklist Incomplete. Blank-backed. These cards came in packages of Tattoo gum, put out by the Orbit Gum Company of Chicago. This is a set of cards that started out blank and were supposed to be developed into photographs by the customer. As a result, there is a wide variety of quality in the developed photos. Some are crisp, while the majority are lighter, some are almost impossible to make out the actor or name, and some even look like negative images. There is also a set of self-developing baseball cards from this company with numbering that starts at 151.

There was an album issued with this set. The album came in at least three colors - green, blue, and black and may have come in other colors as well.

Thanks to Dan Calandriello for help with this checklist.
