  • Description

The tradition of portraying cards with faces dates from King Charles VII’s court in 1400s France, and many of the first face cards represented specific characters from his court, such as Charles VII, Joan as the Queen of Spades, and La Hire as the Jack of Hearts. Designed to mimic real playing cards — standard playing card size with rounded corners, and a double-ended image so the card always looks right side up (except the Joker). The reverse side of each card has our name, logo, and the year, and a short history of the character. One of the purposes of the playing cards is to help the crowd learn to recognize our characters and symbolism, so most of these cards will be distributed by the characters themselves, though others are welcome to hand them out also. The Orléans battalion hands out the Gates of Orléans cards; the birthday battalion hands out the Fool cards; and the Knights battalion will hand out the Cannoneer John cards. 

THIS ITEM: Krewe members from any battalion may purchase sets of 20 complete “collector packs” each containing one of each of the different 2020 playing cards to hand out on the route as a set, plus an overview card (overview only included in collector packs). Limit one set per member, limit 15 sets to be sold. Each pack in a fitted cello envelope. The 2022 collector card pack will include substantially revised cards that go with our two new props, the Fool card with the jester carrying our giant cake and the Cannoneer John card.  This year in the parade we'll have hand cannon "handgonne" confetti cannon and our new giant birthday cake, because our original full-size confetti cannon and our original giant birthday cake will be displayed in the Historic New Orleans Collection museum exhibit "The Making of Mardi Gras," which runs January 6 - May 8, 2022.  Both cards mention on the back that our previous props are in the HNOC exhibit.  Other cards in this year's set are: Flaming Heretic, Victory at Orléans, Joanie on the Pony, King Charles VII, Queen Yolande, and the overview card.  

Other options for playing cards:

  • Krewe members from any battalion may also purchase packages of 20 playing cards of a single design.  This is ideal for adding a relevant explanatory card to enhance your own throws. (Note: not all the card designs are available for these packs)
  • Included free with full membership, krewe members will receive ONE collector souvenir pack with one of each of this year’s playing cards. 
  • The Keepsake Package includes ONE collector souvenir pack with one of each of this year’s playing cards.
