Wonderful double deck made by Carta Mundi for the Nationaal Museum van de Speelkaart of Turnhout, called “European Politicians” and featuring caricatures of European politicians prominent during the years 1957-1991. The cards are signed by artist, "Junius." The illustrations are on the Aces, Jokers and court cards, and the illustrations are different between the 2 decks. One of the decks features leading politicians from the years 1957-1985, while the other deck focuses on those from 1986 to the year the cards were published. Thus, between the 2 decks there are 36 caricatures.
Each deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus an extra card that identifies the politicians depicted in that deck. The cards are bridge size, measuring 87mm x 57mm, and come in the original packaging, a hard plastic box inside a sleeve.
The cards and box are “as new.” The sleeve has slight wear, primarily at the edges.
Thanks for visiting.
