These decks were test runs from the Apothecary Inverno Insights deck which used a super soft cotton using a non metallic full engraved tuck box. It also used the color changing technology of the production deck, but due to the thicker cotton paper the color change not as responsive in certain conditions.
60 decks were created for both the Inverno Insights and the Primavera Ponderings decks for this proof run.
Alex Chin, of Seasons Playing Cards and Portfolio 52, gilded them in various different colors and signed & numbered them as x/60 for each deck. These decks were/are being sent to reward key contributors at Portfolio 52 and Seasons. Additional decks will be sent out as the points system on Portfolio 52 is updated and contributions can be better calculated.
As a result, these decks are known as the 'Prototype and Thanks' edition and can be identified by the white label (vs black on original decks), the signature & hand numbering inside the tuck and custom gilding color which will vary within each set of 60. Could include known green, but also possibly include gold, silver, red, etc. While originally created in 2016 to prepare for the first Apothecary decks, they were not distributed until starting in 2018.
