There was an Arch B Davis that was a banker in Louisville, KY...perhaps he held an opening day party at the ballpark and had these whistles made up for the occasion?
Looking for Nebraska Indians memorabilia, photos and postcards

With a little help from Dan, I've pretty much determined these were given out as "party favors" in Cincinnati at Redland Field for opening day 1929 by Mr. Davis to his family and friends. The date matches and I found the whistle in the Cincinnati area.
