This is a discussion on Have you ever noticed this about a poker deck? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Every King, Queen and Vallet has a diferent picture for each suit. The secrets of the cards.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170709/42e055d283e3abab0f3f71e5b01dacb6.jpg
I think I saw a video about this on youtube, supposedly it was a degradation of the printing process from years back, and after so long the images just stuck and kept being reused. I watch a lot of useless youtube videos.
Every King, Queen and Vallet has a diferent picture for each suit. The secrets of the cards.
They all represent different people in history -
"They drew the king of spades to resemble David, king of the Hebrews, and modeled his sword on the weapon he took from Goilath upon slaying the giant with a leather slingshot, which was shown lower down on the card. They depicted the club king as a stylized Charlemagne , the king of diamonds as Julius Caesar, and the king of hearts as Alexander the Great. The four kings thus represented the Jewish world, the Holy Roman Empire, and pre-Christian Rome and Greece, the four main wellsprings of Western civilization."
Interesting , I have noticed , just never bothered to find out what each means , if there is a wildcard - someone better tell me the card value ( K,Jor Q ) and suit rather than what color the clothes are on it !
