The 40 years of Card set was created in a joint project between Brooke Bond
and TEAMS magazine,
the now defunct collectors magazine.
Originally released in 1994 two dinstinct printing of these were available
(with dark blue and light blue printing on the back) and these were sent out
boxes especially created to hold the 48 cards.
In 1995 a third variation with black printing on the back was released
due to high demand for the cards.
