Notes: Checklist incomplete.

This set can be found with two different cigarette ads on the back. These are S.S. Michael (Indo Egyptian Cigarette Company) or British-American Tobacco (BAT). Other than that, the backs look almost identical. The BAT backs have been seen printed on white or on a yellowish-brown color cardboard.

The back text appears to be in Indonesian, though Google Translate doesn't do a very good job with it. It appears that collectors were offered a prize if they found a card of #31 Eddie Polo.

Thanks to Michael Prior for providing the information to start this checklist.
