Completion Cards, Order Forms, Free / Paid Album Coupons, Oh My!!

All these coupons and forms and cards. They are a lot to keep straight. How about a listing of all the versions of that stuff that has been discovered?

OK, here  you go. This page is about all of the basic shapes of the forms. Subsequent pages focus on specific types of forms. You have:

  • Completion Cards that were included at the end of a series run so that you could send in for the missing cards you needed for 1 each, although they have been known to give them away upon occasion.
  • Order Forms are lists that Red Rose offered to have you quickly and easily order entire sets and albums. It is a glimpse into what Red Rose had left in inventory. 
  • Free Album Coupons that were also included at the end of a series or when you got something mailed to you from them.
  • Paid Album Coupons that show up in the same places as Free Album Coupons... but they are not free.
  • Other Offer Coupons that show up in the box loose as well as in cellos.

Let's Define Each form type.

I think I like charts a little too much. This chart defines what I mean when I talk about each type of form.  

Forms and How They Are Used

Type

Meaning
Completion Card A completion card has the 48 card numbers on it for a series and an ability to request and pay for specific cards.

Order Form

Order Forms say "Order Form" at the top of the form and offer complete sets and/or complete sets and matching albums. The earlier forms would offer single cards for the last series run.
Free Album Coupon Any form that offers one of more albums for free.
Paid Album Coupon
(Not Free)
Any form that offers one of more albums for the standard fee.

The chart below attempts to identify which form is used in what way.
