Kaiser Maximilian I (Germany)

Kaiser Maximilian I
Hunting-themed playing cards are issued quite often, as this has been one of the male hobbies for many centuries. I personally am not a supporter of such fun, although both my father and brother were hunters. I am opposed to the killing of animals without the need for survival.

An interesting Estonian deck that combines classic mirror cards and views of Tallinn. It's a pity that on cards from 2 to 10 the drawings on all suits are the same. Of course, it is possible that the publishers did not find other buildings in the Gothic style in Tallinn.
