Dick Tracy (Caramels)
   Johnson Candy - 1937
   Willards Chocolates (Canada) - 1937

Notes: Cards were used as backing for Dick Tracy Caramels. There are three natural subsets 
with probably different distribution: Cards 1-96 state "series of 96" on the backs but cards 
1-48 have different titles ("episodes") on card backs. The Willards set stops there. Higher 
number cards state "series of 144." Numbers 97-120 are quite scarce, but 121-144 were 
reprinted (for the candy distribution or later) and are often sold as a 24-card subset. American 
Card Catalog references are R41 (Johnson) and V404 (Willards). Scans are posted at the 
Vintage Non-Sports Cards gallery.
