Issued as insert with what product:

Notes: The card size is larger than most of the Dutch Gum Cards for this set, about the same size as the Maple Leaf Film Stars (Amsterdam) set. This set features music stars. There is also a drawing of a saxophone on the backs.

There are at least four different back versions for cards in this set. Backs with red text contain bios in Dutch and French. These cards have H/F printed on the backs, which probably means Holland/French. Red backs with Dutch and French also exist without the H/F marking.

Backs with blue text contain bios in English and German. These cards have D/E printed on the backs, which probably means German (Deutsche)/English.

Backs with black text (rarest of the colors) contain English and French text.

This set looks almost the same as the Anonymous Film Stars (Gina Lollobrigida #1) set. The main difference on the fronts are that the text is slightly closer to the picture for the Large Size Music Stars set. There are some cards that use the exact same picture for both sets, such as Tommy Sands who is card #1 in the Large Size Music Stars set and card #22 in the Anonymous Film Stars (Gina Lollobrigida #1) set.
