    The marbles made on 11/1/12 during the small experiment are selling for $50 to $80 each on Ebay. They experimented with 24K goldleaf on 5/8" industrial type marbles. They say they made 48 of them. What should I call them other than a small experiment?

    Ann-I honestly don't have any other info than the ebay listings. If you have info about a major run that did or didn't happen I would love to hear about it.

    Re: Any new info on the status of Jabo?

    I don't have first-hand knowledge. Someone who was there told someone I know that there was a run that day and it was unsuccessful. Then the principals denied that there had been a run. I suppose there must have been a few (48?) that worked out, so now it's a small experiment.

    But I wasn't there.

    Re: Any new info on the status of Jabo?

    I used the wording "small experiment" to describe the session that made 48 marbles. I think that's inline with how we are rolling these days, right? They are 5/8" industrial types. I am all about documenting the attempts too. If there were others made I would love to get ahold of some even if they aren't being released for whatever reason. I have a JABO barbell from 7/26/12. I would imagine that I am the only person in the world looking for documentation of marbles that don't exist for history's sake. Anybody else probably has a negative agenda.

    Those someone that told someone can often be far from the facts.

    That's entirely possible.

    Re: Any new info on the status of Jabo?

    Thanks everyone for the Jabo's comments and updates. I hope this discussion will continue as I also hope that Jabo will continue to produce marbles in the near future. If there is going to be a run in feb. I am guessing that it will occur before the Buckeye collectors show in Canton, that is if there is still going to be a show. Can anyone give me any info on that upcoming show? Will it still happen? and when? Anyone else have plans to attend? Rick--are you going to be there?

    I heard Jabo just had a run 2/3/13. The JABO AQUARIUS RUN.

    Re: Any new info on the status of Jabo?

    Ok, I've got to admit I've been away for a few months. Moved to a new home and still getting caught up but it's time to give the collection some attention. What is currently going on at Jabo? I know there must be some new runs in the works. I'm hoping to see some replies to this post from some of the regulars here at LOM. Also looking to find out who is making the trek to Sistersville, Wv. for Marblefest this year?
