Sherlock Holmes Premiere Collection
   CMA/RiverWye - 2002

Notes:  Major themes of the former CMA company are now carried by 
RiverWye Productions. This series was distributed only as boxed sets, with 
one chase, redemption, or order card per set. Many collectors preferred to 
order complete chase sets separately instead of multiple sets. Cards do not 
bear numbers, because: "Numbers have been ommitted to allow the collector 
to apply a certain amount of deduction in assembling the collection." So my 
first list shows information that should be sufficient to complete a collection 
should you find yourself with an incomplete set. Scroll down to the bottom, 
and you can see the results of deduction to assign card numbers that are 
not provided for you by the checklist card.

Cards 1-60 are marked with the four-character code that is used commonly 
among Holmesian fans to designate specific books or stories, and the first 
list shows those codes alphabetically. "Card numbers" place the stories 
in chronological order, as instructed in the hints to deductors. Each nine-
card grouping of the Canon cards also forms a quote. The Collier's Covers 
and Book Cover Art subsets numbering is intended to show the card backs  
in sequential order when placed in nine-pocket display pages..
