The matching card game Old Maid is certainly one of the oldest card games. A late 19th century version is marked with Mother Goose nursery rhymes and a single Mother Goose card as the old maid. The card backs advertise Lion Coffee so this deck served as an advertising premium. The matched pairs each carry one-half of well known rhyme introductions along with illustrations, such as "Humpty Dumpty," and "Sat on a wall."
