OK, I think I'm a bit lost again. The list I posted was from the SCD article and was supposed to be the Bond Bread 1947 set, and the cards with an * were in the later find of 24 cards square cornered, which may or may not be reprints. I think the unknown for me, is what cards are in the 1949 square cornered set. Is there a checklist for these? Based on the picture of the boxes there should be 48 "Sports Stars" which may include two boxers. Where the movie stars fit into this hasn't been explained.

You are right on the money about being lost I AM LOSTER THAN YOU. Nobody will believe that my set is from 48-49 when another set was made in the 1980's. The only one authentic is me, so far, because I have had them since the 40.s... Is this fun or what

I found this picture I had saved away from the non-sport website. If these were the box for the W673 "Navy Ships", maybe the same company is responsible for the 1949 square cornered "Sports Stars" set, and the "Movie Stars". The box certainly looks the same, or at least similar.

While the box looks like the "Sports Stars", the cards don't look much like the others, so I doubt they are connected. Here are some images of the "Navy Ships and Planes", which is the actual title of the 36 card set.

I have 25 square corner baseball players and 1 boxer that have the same exact white paper backing and not the cream color. These are originals for sure, cards are identical to my clipped corner ones. Dan

Thank you, Lee, for reviving this thread back in June (Post #70). I am assuming the question was regarding the Musial in your June auction. I won the card and I’ve read through this thread (and found a lot of useful information), but still have some questions if anybody can help.

I am assuming this card was part of the Collectors & Traders Sports Star Subjects 4 box set that was made by Aarco Playing Cards (Chicago). How do we know for sure the cards were made in ‘48/’49? Why couldn’t they have been made at the same time as the Bond Bread (’47)?

There is one eBay seller that seems to think so…

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1947-W571-Aa...vip=true&rt=nc


I have a few interesting observations between the one on eBay and the one I purchased from Lee. (1) The card on eBay is cropped a little closer than mine. Look at the left and right borders and you can see more of the image on mine. (2) The name on his is more towards the bottom. The name on mins is a little higher up. (3) The back of his card appears to be more white (could be the scan though) and I thought I read that the white backs were considered reprints?? Is his a reprint? It sure looks like it shows its age (nearly 70 years old).

Is it possible there were multiple print runs and the formatting changed? If ours are both Sports Star Subjects, why the differences?

Here is a Bond Bread just to compare to. Note that even the Bond Bread is cropped more closely than mine.
