Default Help with German Card Pack

I bought this pack of cards at a flea market in 1991 for $15. The color cover on the envelope that they came in says Made in Germany. Card stock is a bit thinner than T206, but cards are larger.The "base ball" cards have always intrigued me as they depict no bats and the ball looks oversized.

Does anyone have experience with this type of issue?

Here's a better image of the Base Ball player cards. It looks like Germany had a different game in mind when these cards were produced.

I don't necessarily think it was a different version with a bigger ball, but just the way the cards were made. Take a look at the player heads. They are oversized as well as the ball.
