Notes: These cards are shaped like playing cards, though they are not playing cards. Blank-backed. There are 13 movie stars in this set, with four cards for each star. Four of the star's movies are listed on each card. These came in their own box.
Date info: Most of the movies mentioned on the cards were 1916 releases, though there was at least one released in very early 1917, so I am putting a date of 1917 on this set.
