Notes: Checklist incomplete. The cards in this set have yellow borders. Most of the cards in this set are blank backed, but some have printed backs with the Almex company name and information about the set and about ordering an album to house the cards. This back has been seen with the original printing and with some overprints that change the prices. Another back has been seen that is horizontal and has mainly album information.

There is an album that was issued with this set. In the album, each page contains room for 8 cards, with all the stars coming from the same country. For example, there are pages for stars from the United States, Mexico, Cuba, and many other countries, mainly spanish-speaking countries. Though this set originated in Mexico, it is likely this set was also sold in other spanish-speaking countries. The last page in the album contains 8 cards featuring cartoon characters Tom and Jerry and associated cartoon characters.

There are some variations in this set. The variations usually revolve around the movie studio logo and the movie text that is on many of the cards. Many of the variations have one card with the studio logo and movie text while the variation card does not contain those elements. There is a variation for #233 Libertad Lamarque that shows her picture in regular format and reverse format. There is a variation for #129 Jane Wyman that shows her studio logo as Warner Brothers on one card and 20th Century Fox on the other version. There are also some minor color variations. Variations that are known are listed in the checklist below, but there are almost certainly many more variations, as most of the cards have not been studied in detail.

Date info: The album contains a 1959 date.

Thanks to Logan Kirk, Glen Hettrick, and Richard Minns for help with this checklist.
