    Motown Supremes Collectibles - B&W Cards (6)

    I have a set of 6 black and white cards (measuring roughly 2-1/2" x 3-3/4")
    of various pictures of the Supremes.

    I am trying to determine where this set of pictures came from. They are similar to a playing card and there is a picture on the front and a different picture on the back. I assume the set consisted of only six cards.

    One card had 4 Supremes in the picture and all others had 3. Another one shows them looking at a shopping basket full of White Bread and another has them dressed in nuns outfits.

    The only identifying information on each of the cards is:
    5381MC2 (C) Motown Record Corporation Printed in U.S.A.

    Anyone have any information on the source of these cards? They were given to me as is. Thanks for any help.

    These were a part of the 25th anniversary collection. I believe they only were included with cassettes; the LP's had more of a booklet.

    I have a photo but am unable to upload it for some reason.

    There were 12 double sided cards in black and white.

    Mary: Thank you for solving this mystery. The 5381 is actually part of the UPC number that the eBay posting included. Now, here's the horrible truth. Believe it or not, I have both the 2-CD set as well as the vinyl set of the 25th Anniversary Supremes release. I do not have any cassettes in my collection at all; that is why the 5381 meant nothing. Nothing like knowing what you have (lol).

    I have a set of these that I bought at a flea market. I had no idea where they came from so thanks for asking where they came from! I never bought any of the cassette, preferring the vinyl and then CD's. Now I discover things like this came with the cassettes along with alternate tracks on the Greatest Hits & Rare Classics. I should have looked closer! I always just assumed they all contained the same things.

    Must be the wrong number. I tried it but some girl answered telling me that I could have a dance with her, hold her hand and whisper in her ear. Got really weird so I hung up. I might have more success with email.
