Brooke Bond - Magical World of Disney Trading Cards

The Magical World of Disney Trading Cards are a series of 25 cigarette-style cards (tiny) produced back in 1989 in the United Kingdom. The individual cards were issued with packets of Brooke Bond tea. Each measures about 3.6cm x 6.8cm (1.4" x 2.6").

The Snow White characters include the Queen (#2) and Miss White (#3).




The card backs mention an album that was available for housing the set, only 2 x 20p coins.



The set of 25.

  1. I''m not sure why exactly, but as soon as I saw the closeup examples, I could tell that these were from Europe. Their artwork often has a particular look. Are these hard to come by, even though they are fairly recent?

    1. They pop up on ebay every once in awhile, but not a lot.
