Ancient Cards is a centuries old private collection.

The decks showcased on this site are some of the rarest decks belonging to our private collection. Through the years, we have collected hundreds antique decks original version with the goal to preserve them and make them available to the world.

All the cards images displayed on ancient.cards are based of our original decks high-resolution scans which were carefully done by our curator team as part of our effort to digitalize the collection to make it available online. While we have scanned every cards, the site purposely only showcase a representative fraction of each deck to avoid our scans being used to produce counterfeits.
