  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Sorting marbles

    Bored in jury duty so I thought I'd start a thread about sorting marbles - I've done it enough! The first thing I do when I have a big lot of marbles to go through is separate them into 4 groups: clearies, Opaques, cat's-eyes (that's the correct spelling as per Peterson & castle's guide) and...

  2. Any other Mega Marble collectors?

    Just wondering how many other collectors are trying to put together Mega Marble type sets. It's not an easy thing to do, but they are relatively cheap. They can be found at just about any marble show if you comb through the cheap stuff. Yea they are "modern" (the horror!) but they are as fun to...

  3. Calling all Mega Marbles Collectors

    MarbleMel, I noted you collect Mega/Vacor...anyone else? Ron Garcia, long time president of Mega Marbles/Vacor USA left Mega Marbles (currently called "Fabricas Selectas") late last year so I've been trying to suck info from him while I still have the chance. I'm trying to document Mega Marbles...

  10. Question Sea Glass Marbles

    I saw a old post Sea Glass Marbles 01-11-2007 that was unfavorable to the theory that marbles where used as ballast on ships in the old days. I live on a island which at one time was a huge exporter of rum to Europe. I have found over 2000+ marbles on the beach and told by historians on the...

    "That Girl" is taking a mandatory 1 week vacation from the forum. Time and time again her name comes up tied to some forum-related matter that I don't have time for. Sorry, Steph, that can't be denied. This is an exception to usual practice here, but this is an exceptional case. Steph, you are...

  13. Open letter from David Chamberlain

    I have to laugh. David is not connected to the Internet but he has his sources all over the U.S. He keeps on top of all the latest marble news, even stuff generated on the boards, etc. I got this letter in the mail today and he asked me to post it on L.O.M. so I scanned it in and here goes. It...

  15. Golden Rule Marble

    Has anyone ever purchased these directly from Samsonite? I am trying to nail down when Samsonite last sold them. And what about the Dr. Pepper museum? I understand they sold them at one point? Does anyone have any of the several types there have been through the years?
