Clearly aimed at the German market since it has standard Berliner pattern courts and indices in German (K, D, B, A), this pack has non-standard Aces and Jokers featuring seven of the top stars from the famous TV soap opera Dallas. The colour photos are not captioned, but Dallas fans will have no trouble recognising all of them including, of course, the infamous J.R. Ewing played by Larry Hagman. The manufacturer’s logo appears on the 7 of Hearts. The back pattern is framed by a series of five-pointed stars - in red on this pack but also printed on blue.
