Sadly, the latest has been Bill doing nothing on this site. Luckily, there is a lot of content here... so if you are patient you get the surprise of me actually making an update. It may actually be Sheila you want to thank, though.
Thanks to Sheila Thompson for a couple of scans of the big "E" square completion cards. We now know that the Transportation and Animals and Young series had big "E" completion cards. This helps fill in some gaps. Keep looking for the hard to find stuff like Sheila.
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.time-for-tea.com/ and check them out.

Are you interested in Wades? This site has nothing to do with them but you can go to my wife's site 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
