Marble Collecting

This is a group for the discussion of marbles and marble collecting. My knowledge of marbles is extremely limited, it is a learning process for me the same as the rest of you. I most likely cannot answer your questions, but may be able to point you

Steve, buy pretty is only one of many things you've taught me in marble collecting, if somewhat intuitive for any collector of things enjoyed by the eyes. Your little mantras are always useful and well thought out. I like to pay them forward. :)

Comment by Kyle :-D on September 6, 2013 at 10:22am

It's not a huge deal, just kind of curious what 1,500 of them will look like and how awesome some of the pieces look. :-D

Scott I would LOVE to see your Victorian Art Glass Shaker collection. You should post it in Glass Hounds some time. :-D

Comment by Kyle :-D on September 6, 2013 at 10:00am

Oops Robb didn't mean to post it here haha. I was showing it to my buddy. He's a fan of glowing marbles. :-D

I have collected mibs since the early 1960s because they were pretty and happy memories of my childhood.  I have written four books, many articles, and spoken at Aamana about marbles. When all is said and done, we collect marbles which we like. They are tactile and if we collect them, we want to own the pretty ones regardless of who made them.

My mantra for the last 8 or 9 years is to "buy pretty." It is a mantra I have shared with new and experienced collectors. I am thrilled when a newer collector subscribes to this theory. Thank you Robb.

Strangely, Kyle, I can see your vid, but the copy of my akro photo will not load. Off to breakfast! Have a great day!

Very nice Rob.

Also Tom. I don't know why you're having so many issues with this site, but you can paste something without having to type anything in lol.
