Not the popular children’s toy, they once were, but to continue with yesterday’s thought: boxes. During their heyday, marbles were packaged in boxes. Sometimes these boxes might include a carrying pouch, but marbles in plastic polybags came later. (With one exception, all of these photos are via Marbles Galore.)

(More marbles boxes, after the fold…)
