With disgraced-official playing cards, the 'big tigers' are wild

TOKYO -- The mug shots of corrupt officials are landing on card tables around China.

     A new deck of 54 playing cards is selling well. The cards are emblazoned with pictures and profiles of 54 people who were swept up in President Xi Jinping's anti-corruption dragnet. Representing the two jokers are Zhou Yongkang and Xu Caihou.
