An image of said verifiable card would be great.
I am looking for a card from 1523 onwards. If there is one earlier, then I will not continue with my idea.

I had stopped visiting in part because of banned member who had sent me an email and photos of his estimable self- so I went and hid. Very Weird.
I wanted to check that the Noblet was the earliest.
You see I have in front of me a miniature copy (it is tiny) from the Correr Museum in Venice of a Tobacco seller (no artist named)who is a dead ringer for the Tarot de Marseille Bateleur. It is dated circa 1530 and is something to do with the Inquisition torturing people who used Tobacco. On his table are 3 dice, 3 small parcels of Tobacco? a purse, a knife, a bowl. His table has the A frame legs and he is wearing a Hat in red- just like the Noblet. Between his legs is also a tobacco plant with 3 leaves.
I am going to see if I can get someone to enlarge it, scan it and send it to me- so I can link it to this site. I also have a later one by a Jan Grevembroch that is similar Not dated but possibly 1600? No plant though.
