    those look like marble king jello vanes, to me....prob made around 03...or maybe a little earlier...ive got a box of em around here sumplace....
  6. try using a neutral background...grey works the best for me...
  7. not a robins egg...just a robin....
  8. we had socks...you went to school with a few in a pocket sometimes you had to take a sock off for your winnings...it musta been nice to afford a fancy marble bag....
  9. prob is vitro...you can count the mesh and tell the age of the bag...I saw it somewhere but cant remember .....
  10. maybe oil or other dirt or debris from the rollers
  11. yeah...that one...its close enough for me to be the inspiration in the pic...
  12. yup...that's cario....I like the kid in the flyer part...tryin to be the kid on the life mag (or whichever)...its a nice flyer!!!...walts a good guy!!!thanks for postin this steph!!!
  13. ive got some but I have not clue where to look...they have been in the archives many years....
  14. nice....were in full leave now...just a few nut trees still bloomin...
  15. its hard to figger out the value of a one of a kind piece ,when theres nothing to compare it with...emotional connection should not count....sure its purty and unique but if the guys lookin for more than 25-30 bucks he would have a hard time sellin it... at auction its something you would expect to get in a box lot....its neat fer sure and it would look good on a shelf...whimsy....
  16. I have a couple of those!!!
  17. ive got one with the chevy bowtie on it..graphics look 60s-70s to me
  18. since its a toy museum...I would include a section on the game......and stay away from collecting and manufacturers...If you have a factory near-by concentrate on that....but acrchived local newspaper articles of the hey days of marble playin...
  19. most the fire brick ive seen around here are not red....they are tannish or whiteish....are they color coded..??.I see lots of fire brick around here in glass factory or aluminum county...I know they have a code on em plus a temp they will stand...
