    Description

    STAR-CAL ENTERTAINERS COLLECTION. Similar to their celebrated baseball production, Meyercord distributed a series of Hollywood’s celebrities, also identified as Star-Cal Decals. They were formatted much as the baseball cards, and were presented in frames measuring 5" x 3 3/4". They were probably retailed as freestanding novelties, and were offered in two series -- blue (issued in 1951), and red (1952). Unlike the baseball issue, they’re unnumbered. Included in this 22-card collection are Blue: Joan Caulfield, Barbara Stanwyck, Tony Martin, Kirk Douglas, Marie Wilson, Ann Blyth, Tony Curtis, Shelley Winters, Bing Crosby, Ann Sheridan, Dinah Shore, Howard Duff and Jeff Chandler. Red: Doris Day, Martin & Lewis (2 diff.), Piper Laurie, Scott Brady, Audie Murphy, Arlene Dahl, Gordon MacRae and Lucille Ball. These are all about EX/MT. A very few have the maker’s typical transfer blemishes incurred during manufacturing.
