Number of Cards in Set: 18

Notes: Unnumbered. These are very large, thick cards designed to protect stockings. The cards can be folded like a greeting card. All the cards are stars in MGM movies.

Date Notes: The films mentioned on the cards were released from 1951 to 1953, so I am putting a date of 1953 on this set. The Cameric Cigarette Card Club "Notes and News" magazine for Jan-Feb 1954 has a writeup on this set, corroborating the 1953 date.
