Stuff For Sale!

I have tons of stuff on my site, like a set of J. Lyons Canadian Centennial cards or several different sets of Lamberts cards including Cacti, Historic East Anglia, Past and Present as well as Pond Life. Other stuff includes original artwork, rare Lipton '91 dino cards (loose or set), sets of the original 17 series and so much more. Just drop me a line and tell me what you are looking for....

The Latest!

I updated the list of US premiums at Red Rose on the History List. Red Rose History.

I retired in January of '23 and have been living it up ever since. But I decided to get back on the stick and get more sets of card pics available to you. It is a lot of work but I'm sure you agree its worth the effort. I previously completed the single cards for series 1 thru 5 and later added series 6 Tropical Birds, 7 African Animals, 8 Butterflies, 9, Canadian / American Songbirds and 10 Transportation to the pile. I have just completed series 11, Trees of North America. It really grew on me. This means that in the listings for 1 thru 11, every one has a matching picture of the tea card now, front and back. The different variations are represented as well. Red Rose Tea cards by Series.

I completed working on the sets issued by Lamberts of Norwich. Although many sets were issued, I highlight four different sets by showing you what each 25 card set looked like... card by card. I think you will learn that the sets issued by Lambert are quite nice indeed.

It's happened! It took quite a bit of work but I have finally completed a good sized section about NWF!  You know, the National Wildlife Federation... It's long overdue. Why? Because NWF is the reason we have Red Rose tea cards. It's true! You'll see when you check it out. N.W.F..

I've done some nice research on the variations of series 1 cards. You can say for sure which was issued first. Check out the first series variations.


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    Hit Counter    

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.
