I don't know if anyone else has seen these. These are standard sized cards released by Top Cow, the Witchblade comics people, for their comic book ARTIFACTS, that started coming out at the very end of 2010. It is now up to issue #13.
There are 56 cards in the set and depict the various Top Cow characters on playing cards as part of a deck (e.g. 2-10, Jacks, Queens, Kings, Aces, Jokers, and 2 instruction cards)
I consider them to be promos, as they were sent to comic book stores in cello packs of 4, and were released one pack per month when each issue of the comic came out. So you had to wait, literally, for 13-14 months for them all to come out, to complete your set. The last pack was released in early January 2012.

I saw the ads for the cards while I reading the series. I thought it was a complete set to begin with. I didn't realize they were given away in packs of 4. I checked their website and they're going for $5. Would be cheaper to just get the whole set.
