2, 5, 12, 20 & 26 would most probably be the best you have for a comp card  .  .  .  you may want to take a look at some cards first though  .  .  .  you should have a really good head, a shoulders up, a 3/4, and a couple full body looks, that show your shape  .  .  .  and, they shouldn't all look like they came from the same shoot  .  .  .  good luck, you're off to a nice start  .  .  .

I threw in a "rough draft" comp card at the beginning of my portfolio, what do you think of it?

I think the back view swimwear image is a bit week compared to the others, though having a back or 3/4 back shot is a great idea.  I would get rid of it and try to keep your images down to 3-5. 

Don't forget an email or phone number when you're ready to print it!

Last time I shot a comp card, they wanted a clean headshot on the front and three (max four) smaller photos showing different styles on the back.

I'd go with this as the headshot:

Without knowing what types of modeling jobs the card will be used to get, I'd go with these three:

1. http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30637223

2. http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/13900295

or

and possibly this one:
