Hi!

I saw am image and am trying to find the brand of playing cards it is. I talked to the man who took it who said they were "standard playing cards in Ukraine" (the image is found here: https://500px.com/photo/174014459/all-in......19429929 ). I haven't heard back when I asked about the brand.

Would anyone here know- if not this particular brand- the names of some common Russian playing card brands that might get me looking? I think it may be a variation of the faces shown on this World of Playing Cards page : http://www.wopc.co.uk/russia/ollis , the bottom image. I'd love any help. Thanks!

A guy in reddit found the deck in question. I'm just helping to post the link since he doesn't have an account here.

Deck: https://prom.ua/p614438648-koloda-kart-dama.html

It's a standard soviet playing cards. In Soviet Union such term like "brand" never existed

Russian cards has such design from Russian Empire. If you can find such cards - they have value, but soviets - maybe 1$ for deck.

Forget to add, the real value, I think, had not the official cards in Russia but handmade ones. They called "Prison stos" and they made by prisoners in Russia. They have sacral meaning for Russian mafia
