Shirley Maclaine Ticket/Card Questions

I recently purchased the Shirley Maclaine item scanned below for 25 cents and I have some questions regarding it. On the front is a picture of Maclaine along with a facsimile signature. The back says T.A.P. Commutor (sp) Pass along with a person's name and address and the word specimen stamped on the back. Here are my questions.

How old are these passes? It does not have a zip code but based on the look and feel I would guess it is from the 1980s, but I could be completely off.

Did they feature other actors and actresses? How many are in the "set"?

Any other information is greatly appreciated and please feel free to post your own examples if you have any.

I think the pass may be older than you suspect.

The image originates from a publicity photo for the 1955 movie The Trouble With Harry.

The faux signature on the card is very different from MacLaine's modern autographs.

"T.A.P." should be an abbreviation for "Transit Access Pass", if that might provide a clue for research.

I think the card stock/graphics point to mid to late 1950's.

Thanks! I tried a search using Transit Access Pass and still came up empty. It would be cooler if it is from the 50s/60s.
