I haven't either, but then there were plenty of rather obscure tube brands.

At one time John Meck was building radios sold under the name Trail Blazer. But I don't think they existed at the time a 57 tube would have been used, so it is probably not an OEM tube.

Tyne doesn't list it in his manifest of independents in Saga of the Vacuum Tube (Indianapolis: Howard W. Sams, 1977).

I'd wager it's a rebrand, after the fashion of "Cornell" and "Rad-tel" in bygone years.

I have seen a picture of the box. It has, near the bottom, the name Montgomery Ward and Co.
