Tropical Birds (top line black)

Thick card variation

Recently observed is a noticeable variation in the thickness of the cards in this set.

To give an idea of how to locate these cards they feel very similar to the British Incredible Creatures thick card, although it is almost certain they are not stickers.

No full set has been located yet but to give a further idea of thickness 24 cards were measured as a stack which was 9mm thick, ie 18mm for a set of 48, and for comparison 24 normal cards were measured as a stack which was 7mm thick, making 14mm for a set, quite a difference.

These measurments will need to be verified by more accurate means but give a good initial indication as to how to find them.

It is entirely possible that these cards are from a one off batch of cards and may only surface from cards actually issued in tea in Canada.

If you have any of these cards or can offer further information please feel free to contact
