Issued as insert with what product:

Notes: There are two different sets of cards that go under the designation R94. These are designated R94-1 and R94-2. Both sets are blank backed. The checklists presented may or may not be complete. Both sets predominantly show scenes from western movies.

Both sets appear to be strip cards. Burdick listed these sets with an R designation, indicating that he thought they were issued with gum or some type of candy product, since he gave strip cards a W designation.

R94-1. Cards from this set were issued with blue, red, green, purple, or brown tones. It is likely that all cards can be found in all colors, but that is not confirmed. These cards show film stars and scenes from popular movies at that time. Multiple cards are shown for the same movie. One of the films shown in this set was "Babe Comes Home," a film starring famous baseball star Babe Ruth. Because of demand from baseball card collectors, cards for this film are worth much more than other cards, though they are no scarcer than any other cards in this set. The R94-1 cards show only the title of the film on the card and do not identify the actors. At least 6 cards from this set do not even list the film title, and have no caption at all. R94-1 date info: Most of the films listed were issued in 1928, though Lawless Legion was issued in early 1929, so I am placing a date of 1929 on this set.

R94-2. Cards from this set were issued in a variety of colors, including green, blue, brown, pinkish red, dark red, purple, and maroon. It is likely that all cards can be found in all colors, but that is not confirmed. These cards show film scenes from popular movies at that time. The R94-2 cards show the stars, the film and the studio all identified within a box on the front of the card. R94-2 date info: Most of the films listed on these cards were released in 1928, though there are some from 1929, so I am placing a date of 1929 on this set.

Many thanks to Bill Humphreys, Dan Calandriello, and David York for providing the images in this checklist.
