Can anyone identify the publisher, or name of set, of these movie stars photos?

Young Mickey Rooney dates the set around the early-to-mid 40's.

Names in script font, and photos also include names of studios.

Sizes are 5"X7", and paper stock with blank back.

I really liked the added vari-vue eyeball. Are all of them like this? Also, anyone know the title to #5?

That's cool Todd. I don't know where you store everything you collect.

Mid month pickups:

Nice advance on R131.

Not the most exciting strip set but...

Nice bump towards finishing my War News Pictures set. I still need fourteen to finish the finishable portion of the set.
[linked image]

I have wanted the Captain Kidd card for a long time. I'm only just beginning the set but glad to have my favorite card from it already. The license plate was cheap and I violated my collecting rule of staying focused on Burdick cataloged R cards by picking up the Whiz Bang but it's cool and there's no questioning that it fits in with my favorite era:
[linked image]

Nice group of F277-2. The Skinner's Raisin Bran finish my set and upgrade the worst card in my set; I'm very happy to have it completed. It's a challenging little set to finish. I needed the X-Ray Round up Savage while the Western Star is an upgrade. The Bowman Antique Autos (a set that I don't know why I started so long ago) brings me to within one to finish.
[linked image]

R109 Pirate Pictures was possibly the very first 1930's set that I completed and the one that got me hooked on that era's cards. I have about eight with surface creases/wrinkles on them so these two replace two of those. Two clean Lone Rangers move me a baby step closer to finishing that. A couple of great sets.
[linked image]

I have a thing about Mickey Mouse cards. If there is evidence that they were glued into an album I'm out. Consequently I pass on a lot more than I pickup. These are all clean.

Finally, some reference material (another one of my favorite things). What a comprehensive guide. A crap ton of effort went into putting this together; kudos to Alan Stevens.

Daniel, thanks for posting that silks book, I'll have to get one. But can you tell me exactly how much a crap ton weighs, cause sometimes s--t floats.
And don't say 1 ton.

1.) I have been on the lookout for the Blue N245 backs for a while and pick them up when I can (they are pretty tough to find), but this is the first GREEN on e I have ever come across...

2.) Misc lot of N45's and other stuff (the N607 was a new type for me)

Can anyone indentify these actress cards?

Sheet is perforated to produce 4 cards - 2 photos per card. Each actress is the size of a standard cards, so each 2-actress card is double the size of a standard card.

Top edge looks like it was scissors hand-cut, so I would guess that it might be a magazine premium(?). Seller thought they were meant to be cut for use in vending machines, but I think that is incorrect.

FYI, the Marilyn Monroe photo is the same image used on the 1958 Dutch Gum Card "X Nr" #131 card, so perhaps the cards date to the same period.

Here's a mix of stuff including a couple of uncut sheets from Dixie Lids and America Salutes the FBI.

A well loved sub-set of "Ships" cards from the Canadian "Fighting Forces" set.

[linked image][linked image]

And a World War II wrapper and two Perrin's Comic Series cards. - Jack J.

[linked image]

Forgot to include this item. Bird cards aren't necessarily my thing, but I like these for a few reasons. First, they are in very nice shape. Second, they are from McCormick Mfg. Co., a Canadian company that also made a favorite set of mine, "Boy of Mine" in the 1920's. Last, I love envelopes and wrappers. Jim, or any other wrapper guys out there, do you keep this type bag with your wrappers or do you consider them not worthy? - JJ

DC1 Bird Cards

Jack -

Love those DC1 Bird Cards (not that birds are necessarily my thing either, but I do appreciate them). Can you send me or post a 300 dpi image of front and back to use in NSB, and confirm that their dimensions are 76 x 127 mm.

Anybody have one of the black and white versions to post/share?

Chris

Chris - I didn't have your email, so I'll post it here and if it's not good enough, let me know where to send it.

You are right about the dimensions. They are exactly 76 x 127 mm. -Jack Janzen

from memory I think that one has a plain back. Some of these Barratt issues have printed and plain backs.
Hope your well?
Thanks for sharing
