The court cards depict a selection of the most feared pirates of all time, from Blackbeard to Edward England, with menacing faces and poses.
You can find gold coins int he jokers, an essential part of the loot of any maritime criminal.
The numbered cards have completely custom pips, unified through their background.
The symmetrical back is a simple composition with the symbol of the pirate flag in white on a black background.
The deck includes one extra cards with the names of all the characters on the court cards.
