Also known as Visconti-Sforza Pierpont Morgan Tarot
A reproduction of 74 tarot cards that were painted in the fifteenth century, the scenes in the Visconti-Sforza Tarot are authentically medieval. The cards are not titled (there is no text on the cards at all), and four cards have been recreated to make the full 78-card deck.

Visconti-Sforza Tarot review by Lloyd R. Belthazar
I'm sure we're all aware of the Visconti Gold tarot with the foil reproduced by A. Atanassov, but it is the Visconti Sforza Pierpoint Morgan truly sets the standards and the origin of the past and present tarot cards.
There is no wishful thinking of so-called Occultic mysteries and attempts to find shallow relevances to Egyptian, Indian, Gypsy-Atlantean tradition etc. These cards were the first "official" tarot card deck made, and it sets the standard and the original look of our modern decks. They were made NOT for divination or mystical goals, but for simple gambling. (Not to be confused with the French Gringonneur deck of playing cards at the court of Charles in 1392).
