Cartas or naipes ("cards"), also known as Baraja española ("Spanish deck"), are the playing cards associated with Spain. They have four suits and a deck is usually made up 50 cards. The Mexican pattern was derived from the Castilian in 1923 by Clemente Jacques. The knights wear wide brim hats but its most notable feature is the conversion of all the knaves to females. They come in decks of 40 cards but 50 card decks were once produced. * As all of these products are handmade , expect minimal variations between models . ** Shipped through USPS First Class Mail. *** Orders take up to 2 days to proceed , after which they take between 2-5 days to be delivered .
