Brooke Bond Brooke Bond Tea Card Issues Flags and Emblems of the World black back re-issue 1973 Flags and Emblems of the World black back re-issue 1973 50 - These colourful cards illustrate the flags and symbols of many nations and include the flag of the United Nations and were originally issued in 1967 with blue text on the reverse. The text on the back tells us about the country and their emblem, so for instance, we learn that the chrysanthemum of sixteen petals was the symbol of the Imperial House of Japan, but has come to be regarded as a national emblem as well. Albums were originally available for both printings of this series. The really interesting thing, of course, is seeing how many countries within the set have changed their name or flag since this was produced. This is an educational and colourful set with cards size 68 x 36mm.

Brooke Bond Brooke Bond Tea Card Issues History of the Motor Car black back re-issue 1974 History of the Motor Car black back re-issue 1974 50 - This is a reissue by Brooke Bond of their 1968 blue back set which contains superb artwork by Kenneth Rush illustrating road vehicles from the days of steam power through to the latest (1960s) high performance racing cars, with Peter Hull’s descriptive backs brim full of interesting facts. Included, of course, is the Mini or more correctly, as card no. 46 states, Morris Mini Minor, which we are told was the “first really revolutionary mass-produced British car whose remarkable features were its unique front-wheel drive design with a transverse engine enclosing the gearbox in the crankcase, tiny 10-inch wheels and all-independent variable rubber suspension.” If you prefer speed to small and practical then you will appreciate some of the other cars in this set such as the 1935 ‘Bluebird’ in which Malcom Campbell broke the 300mph speed record, a Ferrari P4 with its V12 engine, the Cooper-Climax Grand Prix winner from 1958, the sleek 1948 Jaguar XK120, a 1938 Alfa Romeo and 1936 BMW etc. An ideal set for any car enthusiast. Size 68 x 36mm.
