Notes: These cards can be identified by the following characteristics - they are in black and white, there is a star's picture is on a opaque clouded area within the photo field. The star's name is in script with the studio name below in script - both are printed diagonally. On the back, these cards contain a fortune on one side, "Collect Printicks of Movie Stars" or the name of the issuer on the other, and a space for a weight printout in the middle. In the Peerless copyright line, "Ptd. In USA" is written at the end.

There is a Canadian version of these, issued by the Canadian Rhodes Manufacturing Company. The Canadian cards are borderless.

Exact year of issue not known. I have studied the back of a few of these cards, and two contained a penned-in date of 1947 in the weight printout, so these cards were probably issued in 1947 or earlier.

Known issuers:
Generic - Collect Printicks of Movie Stars
The Owl Drug Co.
Walgreen Drug Stores
Can. Rhodes Mfg. Co. (Canada)
