I'm back into it on eBay. You can look at everything for sale or individually - 5 1991 Dino Cards or I have Series 17 Proof Card or Wildlife in Danger Free Album Coupon or Series 13 Wildlife in Danger Small Square Checklist or Series 16 The Arctic Set - Mint... Check it out.
I took all the new card pics from the card list and added them to the artist list. It makes it possible to look up different art from the same artist. Check out the Artists Listing. It's nice!
I finally got around to making a nice page where you pick a Red Rose series and it lists all the 48 card names. It even has pictures of some of 'em. And then at the bottom of each list is a link for the matching download file if you want a checklist in excel format. Psst, it's the same as the file you get clicking the Downloads tab. Check out the Red Rose Card Listing. It might be helpful.
I've inspired a fellow collector to do a writeup. Terry Gomes has graciously offered to write up something about the other Canadian J. Lyons set. It's the oddest series I've ever heard of. It put rocks and minerals in the tea boxes. Rocks? Yup, that is correct. This set is even more obscure than the Canadian Centennial Celebration set. What is this rare and seldom seen set? It is the Gem Hunters of the World. The set came out in '71. Thanks for the writeup Terry!
I've been working on an obscure tea card set under J Lyons and have come up with a fine new page about it. What set? The Canadian Centennial Celebration set. There isn't a lot of info about it... until now. Time to look at the Canadian Centennial Celebration set of 1967.
What is TeaCard.Com all about?
TeaCard.Com is here to be a source of information about tea cards in general and specifically to be a resource about Brooke Bond's Red Rose Tea Cards in the US and Canada.
You can work your way through the site but if you came here to check out info on Red Rose Tea cards and want to get going, click the link. Maybe you need info on the different Red Rose Series that were issued, then click here. Otherwise, check out the navigation bars on your left and start exploring!
What is TeaCard.Com NOT about?
I'm afraid TeaCard.Com has nothing to do with the current Canadian Red Rose company. If you want to sign up for one of their promotions, I suggest you go to www.redrosetea.ca/ and check them out.

Are you interested in Wades? This site has nothing to do with them but you can go to a links page I maintain about them by clicking here. Wades
Many the bloke has tried to contact Tuckfield Tea through me. I wish I had an inside, but I don't. ;-)
Why Have a Web Site?
I really enjoy collecting Red Rose Tea Cards and learning all I can about what was offered around the cards. It's fun to swap stories and to be a resource when a question needs to be answered.
I am always looking to buy cards and unusual items. I am usually willing to trade as well. Buying Red Rose Cards and more...
Is This a New Site?
No, I had a site up and running on America Online for a few years but moved it here when I decided I was having a lot of fun with people on-line. I have discontinued the old site but have brought the interesting content over.
Do Many People Visit Here?
Yes, quite a few. The old site had just shy of 6000 visitors. We started fresh again here back on 05/08/2000. Granted, anyone can make numbers on a counter, but just for fun, you are visitor number
Welcome to the web site. Take your shoes off..... Set a spell.
Did Anyone Else Help With This Site?
Yes, I owe an awful lot to two people. The first is my wife, thanks Tina, for all of the support you have given me with this hobby that I enjoy so much. Second, thanks to a great friend whom I only met after dealing with him for over seven years. Over those years we wrote and phoned and later emailed. I got to meet him at the Cartophilic Society card show in Stratford-on-Avon in 2002. He lives in South Ireland and his name is Terry Calleyne. What did he do for me? Well, he taught me everything I know about tea cards and will tell you right off that the Yank still has a long way to go! Thanks to both of you.
There are many others to consider as to why this site has such great content. It's all of you that email me and tell me what is going on; what I can do better; and when I am just plain wrong. I know it doesn't sound possible but yes, I have been know to get it wrong once in a while. Anyway, thanks to all of you. It is a team effort.
Thanks for the graphics help on my site to Jim Giedris
