Top Flight is also a golf ball company. That thingy's wrapper dosen't suggest golf though. It would be a really strange promo item if it contained golf balls...Could be. Lots of stuff in the 60's had space theme marketing going on. Did Ebay give an age? The "A "logo (Atlas brand? Top Flight model?) on the tube looks familiar. Tennis maybe.I'll ask my dad (Tennis player since the 60's).
I've used Top Flite's golf equipment in the past..gloves are good, balls are average.
A catalogue from Montgomery Wards circa 1960ish has a Top Flite toy company that made rocket toys. Makes sense, considering the popularity of the early space program, and every company trying to cater to that market. Especially with the Atlas metal color and capsule shape.
I was just lookin at the Ebay thing, and the fact that the logo in the second picture has a pic of a rocket on it, and a little guy in a space capsule, and also that it says "atlas nose cones" on the card... Id say its rockets.
Well, I contacted the winning bidder, but he doesn't know what they are either . He says he's planning to use them in rocketry, though. Anyway, I told him about this forum - and if I hear anything more I'll stick it here.
