Gilded version of: First printed in 1896. The original No. 47 Circus Playing Cards advertising copy said: “The staid old Kings, Queens and Jacks have given way to various well-known ring masters, clowns and queens.” This fun all purpose deck features easy to read large indices and 12 interesting individual courts. The original deck only included 1 joker but we added an extra for modern game play. The blue color deck has a 2-way back design featuring a lion tamer and a lion and a horse in the corners.
