40 Years of Cards (1954-1994)
  A History of British Brooke Bond Picture Cards
Brooke Bond - 1989

Notes:  Cards are approximately 1-3/8" x 2-5/8", and celebrate most of the card
sets that were distributed with Brooke Bond PG Tips packet tea and tea bags.
Card backs give descriptions and history of the sets and identify the availability
of albums and double cards and approximate (in 1994) set prices.  The cards were
intended for sale as a complete set, not as product inserts; two varieties were
printed, one with blue backs and one with black backs.
