Notes: Checklist incomplete. There were multiple series issued with Crack cigarettes. Serie A, B, C, D, E, H, J, P, R, and Z featured film stars. Serie F, G, M, and O featured footballers. Serie X showed aviators and Serie Y showed jockeys.

There are two slightly different varieties of back designs in Serie A. The easiest way to tell the difference between the two is that one style has "Foto A. Carbone" on the bottom of the back, while the other just says "A. Carbone" in the same place.

There are four slightly different varieties of back designs in Serie D. If you click the picture of Buster Keaton at the top of this page, you can see examples of the four varieties.

Some of the series can be found with or without "del 1 a 50" on the backs. Often there are different subjects found with the different backs.

Date info: On the back of the Louise Brooks card, her age is listed as 22, which places the date of the set to around 1928 or 1929. I'm placing a 1929 date on this set.

Thanks to Richard Minns, Mike Davies, and Thomas Gladysz for helping with this checklist.
