They were offered as a prize to the 4th place scorer in Madison, WI's marble tournament.

The first place winner was to receive a new suit of clothes, dress shoes, a free pressing of a suit, and the trip to Chicago for the regional competition. But in the end, the hardware store gave both boys a box of marbles and a Cornelian shooter.

Romanzo may have gone on to play bush league ball -- not certain, but there was a "hurler" by the same name, of the appropriate age a few years later. (Can't jump to conclusions. Many Schneiders from different families settled in the area, including my great-great-grandparents. Many cousins and even unrelated people had identical names.)

I think I have Morton salt ad from 1938 also. Maybe other years also.

I presume this to be a Berry Pink promo. Definitely have other examples of premiums which are or are likely his doing. Some say Marble King.
