The Collectors Cards are available in three different series. All are 100mm x 150mm.
All series begin with Hauptmann Erich Hartmann, since he was the highest scoring Luftwaffe pilot with 352 Victories.
These cards depict Staffel and Gruppe emblems relevant to each pilot, though it must be borne in mind that some Staffeln and Gruppe did not have specific emblems. Also shown are the "Waffenfarbe", the particular shoulder boards and collar patches relevant to the highest rank achieved, plus rank insignia attached to the arms of specific types of flying suit or jacket. Generally speaking, the highest rank achieved in WW2 is the rank depicted on each card, however, please bear in mind that the rank shown in the colour photos in many instances is not the highest rank achieved. Likewise, the rank at the time of the award is not necessarily the highest rank achieved.
