Wild Colors Autographed Strip Cards

Issuing Company: Unknown
Country of Issue: USA
Year of Issue: Late 1920s-early 1930s
Color/B&W: Color (one color used for each card, many different colors used)
Number of Cards in Set:
Card Size: 1 11/16" x 2 5/8" or 2 3/8" x 3 3/8"
Issued as insert with what product: Issued in strips by themselves with no other product. Cards are usually found cut apart.

Notes: Checklist almost certainly incomplete. Stars are identified with an autograph on the front. Blank-backed. These cards can be found in multiple colors. This is the first set I've seen with cards of Amos and Andy included. The small style version of these cards were originally issued in vertical uncut strips of 8 cards. There is a related Exhibit 4-in-1 set that uses the same pictures.

There were at least two different printings of the strip cards version of this set. One printing has the cards a little smaller and narrower and the other larger and a bit wider. There are some cropping differences and some differences in placement of the name of the star between the two printings. It is possible that the subjects might be a little different between the two printings though many are the same.

There are also at least two more versions of these cards printed in larger sizes that do not appear to be strip cards. For one version, the cards are 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" and for the other version, they are 5" x 7".

Thanks to Ron Strader, Ken Bush, Jack Janzen, Greg Galliger, Dan Calandriello, and Bill Oliver for help with this checklist.
