Default American Caramel Ad Card

I just got an American Caramel Company ad card. As you can see, it has a baseball theme and is advertising their products. I am interested in opinions about whether this ad card was advertising one of their products containing baseball cards.



One clue on the card is that it says the company was located in York, PA. On the back of American Caramel baseball cards, only the E106 set from 1915 lists the company location as York, PA. The 1910 era E90 set says Philadelphia, the E120, E121, and E122 sets from the early 1920s say Lancaster and York, and the E126 set from 1927 says Lancaster.

So, any opinions about whether this ad card was used for advertising caramels containing E106 cards?

Default neat ad piece

Hi Troy
Neat ad piece but I think it's going to be difficult to get a direct association with our caramels/candy that contained cards unless we find something else to associate it with. A larger store ad or this ad in a picture with cards....sort of like the tobacco ads with cards included in the packs actually showing. Very cool ad piece though. I might come back to this with some more thought given to it. regards
