R94 Movie Stars and Scenes Overview
The R94 Movie Stars and Scenes set is largely a non-sports issue. Two Babe Ruth cards, though, make it an issue of interest, however.
Two R94 sets exist. Both sets include cards in a variety of color tints and it is believed that all cards probably were printed in all of the color tint combinations. The two sets have different cards and different dimensions, though. The first set, R94-1, features cards that are closer to square in appearance. R94-2 has more rectangular and longer cards.
The cards are catalogued by Jefferson Burdick in the American Card Catalog as R94, making them a later candy issue. However, the cards are strip cards and could also be catalogued as W-Cards. Because they are strip cards and were hand cut, they generally have uneven edges.
Regarding the dating of this set, while it is often labeled as a 1933 set by grading companies, many collectors believe it was printed in 1929 as most of the movies featured were from 1928 or 1929, according to this site.
