Wow Film Stars and Biographies (Horizontal)

Issuing Company:
Country of Issue: England
Year of Issue: 1954
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set: 34
Card Size: 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Issued as insert with what product: WOW Gum

Notes: These can be found with blank backs or with printed backs. Unnumbered. These were issued with WOW Gum, but there is no mention of WOW on the blank-backed cards. The printed backs do mention WOW Gum. They were issued in a bunch of different color combinations. Paper thin cards.

The card packs contained cards for Wow Hollywood Peep Show and Wow Film Stars and Biographies together in the same packs, according to a report by collector Mr. Easson in the September 1954 issue of The Cameric Cigarette Card Club "Notes and News" magazine.

Date info: Most of the films named as the latest films of the stars on the cards were 1954 films, so I originally place a date of 1954 on this set. This date is confirmed as this set was reported as a new issue in the September 1954 issue of The Cameric Cigarette Card Club "Notes and News" magazine.
