It is certainly unusual to find a non-standard Bohemian pattern pack. This one has been stripped of almost all its usual features to make way for all the usual Simpsons characters (Homer, Bart, Marge, Lisa, etc.), including on the numeral cards which have amusing vignettes. The name of the creator of The Simpsons, Matt Groening, appears somewhere on every card. German suits. For a real Simpsons collector, this pack might be a hard one to track down. See the box►
