Where the bluebonnets bloom
I have a deck of cards that I bought sometime in the late 1990s. The back is green and black, with a pattern similar to granite. In the middle, on each card, is a gold leaf Apple logo and the word Apple. It's in Apple Garamond type, so I know it's from the Think Different era. Here are a few pics I took with what must be the worst digital camera on Earth.

Ace of Spades
Joker
Back of card. The box has the same pattern and logo.

As you may or may not be able to see, the card manufacturer is Gemaco. Not sure if the line over the A is some kind of diacritic mark or just a means of saying "it's pronounced Gem-eh-co". I can find no mention of this deck anywhere on the interwebz. No pics (well...three now), nothing. Anybody know anything about it?

I've got a set of these also but no information on why/when or what for.
Presume just a general promo item as opposed to the specific Mac version

I've seen those card faces before, but they were on a different deck. The faces on my deck are regular card faces, including the aces. Are you sure those two pics are from the same deck?

Sorry, not made myself clear reading it again!
Yes the bottom picture is the face from the Mac specific deck with the red back to them
