As morbid as this sounds, does anyone else collect "German Death Cards"?

What are "German death cards"?

The only death card I know is the Ace of Spades

Yeah, I should have explained better...
German Death Cards are what they send to the family when someone dies in battle. They have a picture of the dead, and some text about them on it.

Well, to answer implicature and c/, I collect them because I find them interesting. I also find it sad that many of these cards are tossed aside when they really have so much value... at least I'd think so. When I say value, I mean emotional, I mean they were given to the family for the death of a loved one...
Here's a photo:

Now I got it.

First I thought you were talking about certificates of death (Totenscheine).
