Borg Film und Buhnenlieblinge Serie A

Issuing Company: Borg
Country of Issue: Germany (Offenbach)
Year of Issue: 1932
Color/B&W: Color
Number of Cards in Set: 60
Card Size:
Issued as insert with what product: Cigarettes

Notes: The title translates as "Film and Stage Favourites (Series A)", not to be confused with the more common Borg issue of the same name, which has "Serie B" after the title and 288 photo cards. The 60 cards of "Serie A" are all women and appear to be hand-tinted on a gold background. All images were later used in photo format in "Serie B".

According to backs, an album was planned (for 1 Reichsmark, expensive for the time) but no album has ever been seen. Cards for "Serie B" were first announced in "Der Bildersammler" ("The Card Collector") in September 1932, so this series probably appeared at around the same time or even earlier.
