Thunderbirds Premium
   Cards, Inc. - 2001

Notes:  A Preview Set was produced. Thanks to Nicholas Thorp for the updates! There 
appear to have been considerable instances of "short printed" or short-distributed 
cards.  Based on my experience with four boxes and by checking with other 
collectors in the U.K., Australia, and New Zealand, 47 of the 72 base cards were 
printed about twice as much as 25 other cards, and the short-print list is the same 
across continents.  From the U.S. and U.K. data, cards 13 and 39 are "extreme" in 
their scarcity and cards 23, 49, and 67 are "severe."  But the extreme instances 
may have been coloured by poor collation and luck. The 25 in the short list are 
noted with an "s" in the checklist below.

The "1966" set available through the redemption card was published by Barratt & Co., 
Ltd. confections, titled "Thunderbirds, A Second Series of 50."  It consists of 50 
trade-card-sized cards; publication  date is listed as 1968 in the Murray Cards 
International catalog.

Box: 36 packs of 5 cards.
Common sets (72): approx. 2.39 per box if collation were perfect
  (but see note about potential short-prints).
Common sets, if suspicions on single- vs. double-prints are correct:
  1.51 per box on average.
