More Popeyes For Penelope

Recommended Posts

Here's a box from one of Marblealan's auctions. Popeye marbles are named after the box. They're not the only marble style which was sold in the Popeye boxes. They're in the boxes a lot though and won the name.

Their real name to Akro back in the 30's was Tri-Onyx Agates.

p.s., here's a close-up of two marbles from that box. One is a true popeye patch - a marble which was meant to be a cork but didn't get spun.
