Issuing Company: Unknown
Country of Issue: USA
Year of Issue: 1920s
Color/B&W: Color (one color used for each card, many different colors used)
Number of Cards in Set:
Card Size: 1 9/16" x 2 9/16"
Issued as insert with what product: Issued in strips by themselves with no other product. Cards are usually found cut apart.

Notes: Checklist incomplete. Blank-backed. Cards can be found in multiple colors. It is likely that this checklist contains cards issued from more than one playing card set. There are some cards showing the movie star in ovals and some with movie stars in a circle and those could be distinguishing characteristics of different sets. There are also more than one movie star in ovals with the same card number, so those could be from different sets. All wild color playing card movie star strip cards are grouped together in this checklist for now.

The cards showing the stars in circles match with some known Exhibit 4-in-1 Movie Star Playing Cards, so those cards could be cards that are cut from those Exhibit cards rather than strip cards.

Thanks to Dan Calandriello for providing many of the scans for this set.
