Anti-religious playing cards began to be issued in the USSR in 1931. In the USSR, cards were distributed with Russian indexes and Russian text on aces. This is the only anti-clerical propaganda deck released at the Card Factory, artist Sergey Levashov drew the cards.
Each card of this original deck is a “casket with a double bottom”: in the foreground are the clergy of one of the four world religions (Orthodoxy, Catholicism, Judaism and Buddhism), and in the background are the “real” thoughts and deeds of these people. The joker and card shirts are consistent with the general idea of ​​anti-religious propaganda. On the joker, the Almighty is shown in the form of a noble, well-fed capitalist in a top hat, tie and with wings, leading like a puppet a shaman, pastor, rabbi and Orthodox father.
In the composition of the shirt for the export version, the artist entered the star of David, a Christian cross and a pagan ritual mask. Aces depict compositions offering alternative occupations to religions: cult attributes are contrasted with images symbolizing industry, art, science and sport.

The export version, unlike the Russian one, was produced in several versions, in particular, there were editions with the golden edge Extra Fine No. 701 and Extra fine No. 702. They differed in the color of the box and the back.
