That is the most interesting Worshipful deck Jase. Will you be posting it to the Worldwide? I would love to know more about it, and about the Kimberley deck it uses for the faces. Cool time zone card.

Good to see the cards arrive, Jase! Nice pic. :-)

I do enjoy looking at all the pics of your wonderful and unusual cards in this thread. The reproduction of the old french deck above with Dido, Hannibal, Menelaus and Helen looks very interesting and different ... but so many great things on every page

Another great Jasenator variety pack. :ugdance:

There's that wonderful blue I love from the "Neue Altenburger Spielkarte II" / DDR 2 in Germany of the Worldwide. Being used in a skateboard deck :o

It's cool to see the Viceroys arrayed as a physical pack. I remember when that pack was being designed a ways back and I like the finished cards more than I thought I would. Very timely with your Mamluk posting. The Malpertius decks are gorgeous, but so out of my current budget. You are a dedicated collector Jase. Nice to see they put your name in there.

The Piquet No.90 / Kaiser is quite beautiful. Seems to have that soft look of stone lithography. Much more graceful and interesting than the Imperial / Kaiser deck by Piatnik. I'll be looking for this one. I recognized the name and got my Piatnik out to compare. Love the colours and the more natural poses of the courts in the No. 90.
