Keeping (some information of) gpg --card-status private

Hi all,

I querying a Nitrokey Pro via gpg --card-status, without any PIN needed,
the card reveals quite some information, for example the ids of the keys
stored on the card.

Is there any way around this, for example to make these information
available only after a valid PIN was entered? In case it's not, are
there any cards out there with which this is possible?

Looking forward to any input.

Thanks for your work,
