  1. As some of you know, my Dad passed away a couple of weeks ago. Here's his obituary, and a couple of pics. Bob TRUMBULL CONNECTICUT - Stanley A. Block, age 87, of Trumbull, Connecticut passed away at home surrounded by his loved ones on July 17, 2020. Stanley was the founder and chairman of the Marble Collectors Society of America, from its inception in 1975 through 2015, an uninterrupted forty years. He was also a collector, antique dealer, auctioneer and author. Stanley was born in Brooklyn, New York, son of the late Irving and Nancy Block. He graduated from Central High Scho
  2. Just an FYI, since a couple of collectors called me this morning, the Courtyard Marriott where the show is being held is completely sold out this weekend. There are rooms available at the Hilton House next door and the Hampton Inn across the street. Just a lesson that the room block cut-off date can really mean that if you don't make your reservation by that date you might not get a room.

  4. Nope. My clinic down in New London on the shoreline has already been flooded today.
  5. So, Delta has cancelled our flight out of LaGuardia tomorrow morning. So, we won't be coming out this weekend for the show :-(
  6. I'll be there on Saturday afternoon, after a quick swing by the Moon and then the Museum.
  7. I'm not too sure about that. I don't think you see many antique wood solitaire boards that are for peewees. You do see tin and cardboard and part of game sets, but they almost always have clays in them.
  8. Lutzes make a comeback!!!! Yea!!!! I'm going to be rich!!!
  9. I would highly recommend Phil Thomas. He's been making cases for years. I must have over a dozen of them, from small ones I carry around to shows to larger pieces. Great work!
  10. I had someone break my car window once and the only thing they took was a small package with a banded lutz in it that was going to the Post Office the next day.
  11. Absolutely correct. Buy the best possible example you can. It's better to have a small collection of truly outstanding examples than a mass of mediocre ones.
  12. I've been to Indy a couple of times, a number of years ago though. Definitely a good show to get your feet wet
