Default Olsen's Base Ball card game connection to E120/V61 cards?

Posted By: Joseph

Saw this on the Yahoo Baseball Games group, hope we can help out here:

"Olsen's Base Ball" is a generic game played with cards, variously listed with a 1912 or 1922
production date. I've seen two versions. The example I own has no instructions, but the example that surfaced recently (purchased for $1) does, as shown below (along with an upper right study of box & cards). Notice the ad for the cards. These are clearly either the 1922 E120 American Caramel or 1922 V61 Neilson's Chocolates. (note the complete set says 120--so that leans towards Neilsons).

I'm hoping someone out there knows the connection between the cards and game, if any.

I've never seen that ad before. It probably is selling cards cards from the W573 set. It doesn't really make sense that a card game manufacturer would be selling cards that were sold with a Candy manufacturer on back.

I've seen that ad in some 1920s Parker Brothers game sets, in particular, Rook.
