Royal also issued a set of baseball cards at about the same time as their movie star card set. The baseball cards were issued over a three year period, from 1950 through 1952. The same cards were issued over the three years, but there were some text variations between the years. It is unknown at this time if there are text variations with the movie star cards as not very many have been studied. Only the movie star cards are checklisted here. Thanks to Bob Richardson for help with this checklist.
