Is the plastic bag posted earlier, a Marble King Company bag ? Or a Berry Pink the Marble King bag ?    

Bags with headers marked Marble King have Alley swirls in them.

Box sets marked Marble King Marbles can have Alley marbles or Peltier marbles or Marble King marbles.

Why ?   Everything marked Marble King may or may not refer to Marble King Company.  Berry Pink wanted to be and was known as the Marble King. He was a jobber and packaged different company marbles with his nickname Marble King. Berry pink was also part owner of actual Marble King Company. The Marble King Company bought out Alley at St.Marys WV. They bought everything. So Marble King Company and or Berry Pink also packaged Alley swirls they had bought.  The Peltier marbles likely came from Sellers Peltier Jr. who was also part owner of the new Marble King Company.

Yes it's all Marble King. Berry Pink Inc. Berry Pink industries Inc is or was the corporate head or holding company. This means that; Marble King company or at least Berry's share is or was a subsidiary or possession of Berry Pink Industries. All the labels before and at least by August 1957 which is when that card was originally released; marked 'Marble King' is either Berry's trademark or trade name. It and entire 12 card package was sent to Smith's 5-10 store in NC, December 1957. Orders were shipped F.O.B. out of the St Mary's site. Not a single card has patch and ribbons yet to be sure, they had plenty Cats-eyes.

At least, one can presume; Howdyshell had not made a solution for patch and ribbons before Aug 57.
