ABOUT THESE CARDS:
This sale is for a near set—98 out of 100—higher-grade rare vintage 1959 "MGM Film Stars" trading cards from Italy, including cards of big stars such as Elvis Presley, Audrey Hepburn, multiple cards of Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, and several featuring Cary Grant in Alfred Hitchcock's "North by Northwest." A complete checklist of all cards and movie titles follows below.

On a good card stock and a decent size, each card measures 2-1/2" X 3-1/2 inches.

Condition is generally EX-MT or 7/10 but it should be noted that all cards have a curl to them—see the curl in scan #3 which shows a stack of all 98 cards. I did not see any creasing among the group, though it's possible I missed something minor going through 98 cards.

Other than that several of these black & white cards have what is either light soiling or light print marks over them. Cards I noticed this on included numbers 1, 18, 25, 33, 35, 72, 92, 99, 100. Card #15 has a small chip into the top edge; #27 has a dark spot of soiling at the right border. The rest just have light corner wear ... and the curl pictured in scan #3.

Missing from this group are cards #48 (Elizabeth Taylor in "L'Albero Della Vita") and #70 (Maurice Chevalier, Deborah Kerr, and Rossano Brazzi in "Il Marito Latino"). The other 98 cards are included and listed below. Several of the better stars and poses are shown in the scans.

Film titles are listed in Italian on back of the cards; I've translated them all into English and included them in all CAPS after the Italian titles.

General Shipping Notes:
I ship six days per week.

Items ship next day after I receive notification of successful payment.

Sometimes it ships same day, depending upon the cut-off time and how busy my day is. But next day is guaranteed—you will have a shipping notification within 24 hours of placing your order, excluding Sundays.

Items are packed within hobby supplies and then protected by cardboard sheets and shipped flat. If you've ordered a lot of stuff, I might ship in a box instead. That will also have proper protection inside.

I buy a lot online, and I've always said I practice the Golden Rule when it comes to shipping—it's going out to you in the way I'd like to receive all of my packages.
