Notes: Checklist incomplete. Unnumbered. There was an album issued with this set. This set consists of movie star stamps for Universal Studio. Univeral started in 1912 and this set was issued in 1914, so it was issued very early in the history of Universal. At that time, Univeral had many different brands producing films. Each page in the album is devoted to a different Univeral brand, including Bison, Eclair, Gold Seal, Imp, Nestor, Rex, Sterling, and Victor. There is also a page with no brand.

The album owned by Amit Benyovits contains 9 pages with 6 stamps on each page for 54 stamps in the set. However, The Victor page is missing two stamps, so the checklist below is presumably incomplete if those two stamps were issued. The album displays a date of 1914 on the front.

Thanks to Bob Richardson for providing the information to start this checklist and to Amit Benyovits for providing scans of the album.
