Playing Cards before 1370?

We've here a place for theories, which say, that there was something like playing cards before 1370. Orthodox playing card theory had stated in the past, that there was nothing. But we allow here anything, which points in the other direction, perhaps occasionally not very qualified, perhaps not more than an idea. Perhaps we do learn something from this not totally "sure documents" and opinions. It's a matter of development, we make brainstorming here. Do not take everything totally serious, you're invited to evaluate yourself.
