Hi,

There is this CGA/Hercules card with mouse and 2 gameports but I can't find any info, even the manufacturer or model number.

This one has 2 game ports and a 9-pin mini din mouse ??? connector ? Which mouse is that ?

The FCC ID label on the back means nothing. This board appears in other shapes with 1 game port and no mouse:

It's just for curiosity as I bought the 8.99 dollar one :)

The Mouse port is for the MS Inport Mouse. The rest of the card looks like a clone of the ATI Small Wonder line. Fairly common, should work as either generic Hercules or CGA with no problems but you may lose out on any hidden special modes.
