Notes: Checklist incomplete. The cards were issued in perforated strips of 13.

These were issued in bubble gum machines. Other cards issued at the same time include flags of the world, playing cards, and baseball players (R423).

For the movie stars, there is a black and white set and a color set. It looks like the color set might just be a colorized version of the black and white set, but not enough cards have been studied to know for sure.

Thanks to Jim Abdella for help with this checklist.
