collected cards on space

Through 1969, I continued to collect cards for The Space Race book, with Mom's help, from the Red Rose tea boxes. I was entranced and anxiously awaited trips to the grocery store.

The small Brooke Bond paperback booklet was fascinating. It not only featured cards and information on human space flight but also astronomical phenomena such as aurora, meteors, perihelia, the planets in the solar system, and so on.


The Trading Card Database web site features pages with images of each card, front and back.


On 15 Apr '10 I finally collected all of the cards!
