Raphael Tuck & Sons
1906
Notable artists illustrating sets this year included Lance Thackeray, illustrating sets such as Amateur Gardening, and Society Pets, and John Hassall with Humour of Life.
Another competition was announced in February. The aim to establish the longest chain. Any public institution could be nominated, and the originator had to get as many as possible to buy a packet of Tuck cards, send one in to the institution, and the rest to his friends, telling them to do so as well. Prizes were 1000 to the institution with the most cards, and 50 to anyone that sent a card to the winning institution.
