Default WTB Marbles

Me,the boys,my Dad and a few customers are getting into collecting marbles.
Looking for Agate,Vitrol,Vacor
No real interest in Cat eyes,but if they are cheap,why not.

Let me know what you have

Example of the types of marbles I am after below




have some interest in modern marbles, 1970-current, but only really nice looking colors or odd patterns. Would be interested in modern reissues of Supermen,Spiderman,parrot,Blue world,bumble bee,etc...the old classics

Will be selling the reissues to other collectors who are getting into it as selling a reissue of a classic for 1.00 may be more appealing than trying to sell a 70 year old of the same for 10-20.00

Here are some examples of vintage and reissue
Superman Vintage


Superman Reissue


Spiderman Vintage with Oxblood colors


Spiderman Reissue (Some will say 20 years or more is vintage,but no. These are from early 80's and are classified as modern. Seller on ebay wants 15.00,but they are worth 1.00-1.50/ea)


Bumble Bee VIntage



Bumblebee Reissue



ANYWAY

If you run across or have anything, let me know and drop some images

Looking for 5/8 up to boulders (Shooters)

Best score was 10 silver bars...20 grams .999 each....not a bad find.

I have what you're looking for. Pre 1950 - I don't have the box they came in but where I got them there is no doubt to the time period they are from. I'll get some pictures taken and post them up.

I am interested
They look like alley swirls and champion swirls

I count 41
Do you have a price in mind or should I ask my marble friends what a fair offer would be ? I am new to buying them as most of mine come through the shop with other lots and I have been pulling them and saving them. I am now collecting

I have a bunch of marbles, but I believe the majority are cat eyes. I will have to find them and take a few pics for you tomorrow.

Ok
Please, get CLOSE pics on those that are not Cateye marbles so I can try to determine age and company

like the above marbles I purchased ?
They are MOSTLY Alley Agates and by the TYPE of swirl , I knew they were Ravenswood, VA Alleys
It just helps to have clear images

On Cateyes, I need a few images with the point facing the camera

Example

Here is the side view and the forward view

Ok jkidd

Same as above, just try to get close, tight and in focus images so I can determine the company and issue a fair offer.
Last thing I want to do and I think most of the forum would vouch, is underpay.

Just take a pic of the bottle from 4 sides, as close as you can get, spill a handful out and close pics of 2 sides of them and that should help.

if this is not too much of a hassle

Cash is always an option and if anyone is looking for sportscards, let me know as well

ALSO interested in some Glass paper weights
Paperweights must be nearly all round, except the bottom base. I would like the bottom base to be 1" or less if possible.
Here is an example
The base is 3/4 across
If you notice it is round, like a marble, except for the base
