I've seen the movie, years back and . . .

there's a casino scene with James Bond and the Evil Guy (Drug Lord Sanchez, going by memory) as well as the Corrupt Dictator in the casino. Every Latin American spy movie MUST have a Corrupt Dictator lurking about. Cards were of course being used at the tables but I cannot remember if the backs of the cards were ever shown, at least in any great detail.

Inasmuch as the chips from Isthmus City Casino were reproduced in quantity for home play (and are not particularly scarce), I am guessing that decks of cards could also have been made as "souvenirs" of the movie.

But, hey, for those who like such things, buy a pack and tell your poker pals, "Senor Sanchez sends his regrets, he could not make it because he was roasted in the big cocaine fire." Uh-oh. Did I just spoil it for you?!!!
