When the subject first came up I denied that these existed.  But they do. Just like the early blue box one, with no copyright nonsense on the cards, put our by Rider (no mention of Waddingtons); printed for Rider by Muller - in a blue TUCK box.



When it was finally conceded on AT that this existed (you have to read a lot of the thread and I was one of the first to say NO WAY !)

Holly Voley and Frank Jensen were VERY interested. Since then I know of a number of people who have managed to get copies and I am wondering how many people here own one, as I saw on Dusty White's website that he believed (a little while ago) that only three copies had been verified. I know of more than that personally, so...

Yes, it does exist. Apparently I was very lucky to get one. I have been studying and collecting Tarot decks and books for over 30 years. I am happy to be able to connect with the Tarot community on this site.

I bought one in the early '70s, in Wellington, N.Z.

Mine was from ebay.

I am sorry Frank never saw one before he died - as far as I know - he was so excited !

Yes, they exist. I have seen several ones and had 2 at one time (sold one). They have the so called 'Blushing Fool' in there all the time. So it probably dates from 1972.

I got mine from Ebay too.

Btw, for anyone interested in the 'Blushing Fool'.

These can be found in:
Blue Tuckbox Rider
Traveller's Tarot
Blue box Rider, published together with Waddington

And also in a few yellow USG Games boxes. With or without Weiser on the box. I got one now that is a USGames box from 1971 (sunburned Magician on the front of the box) and with the Blushing Fool.

But it is still not sure if they were the first print. Or just one batch printed that they then just put in several different boxes, since they appear in both Rider and USGames boxes.
