The Birkel company has produced several promotional “Schwarzer Peter” packs over the years and this one is themed on the circus.
“Circus No.47”, first issued in 1896. The staid old Kings, Queens and Jacks have given way to various well-known ring masters, clowns and queens; dashing circus designs. Indeed, the clown Jacks are only a short step away from Jokers!
