8 x 10
Fan Cards were sent out by the studios when fans wrote in for a stars autograph or picture.
These autographs were not genuine, usually rubber stamped or etched on the negative of the
photo and most likely not even a copy of the star's actual signature. These matte, double
weight photos came as 5 x 7's or 8 x 10's and at one point, fans could purchase 8 x 10's for
only a quarter!
