I found this rather interesting because of the artwork. The style is almost identical to Charles Addams' style, the face of the guy on the left looks exactly like a face I've seen in one of Addams' drawings... but that is clearly not his signature. I hoped it was because it would link my favorite artist with these cards. Anyway, neat old timey ad.

Attaching the image you're talking about, since eBay listings will disappear and this thread won't make any sense without the visual reference:
