Reprint card set
As described above.
Error cards
The "Issued in" set has a well known variation, with card 11 having two different variations. The first with the caption "INNER PLANETS" printed above the planets picture and "OUTER PLANETS" printed below. The second version does not carry these captions. The "Issued with" set is not believed to have this variation.
Album
An album was issued for this set, with the price of 6d. on the front.
Album variations
There are two printings of the album, the variation being on the back. One includes the wording "A card is given free in every packet of Choicest and Edglets Tea" whilst the other includes the wording "A card is given free in every packet of Choicest, Edglets and P.G. Tips Tea".
Wallcharts
Although there is a possibility a wallchart was issued for schools only, this cannot be verified.
