  1. I considered Stan a personal friend. He often gave me great advice about buying and selling marbles. He was true to his word in every way. I had great pleasure in chaperoning Stan & Claire and Gary & Judy Huxford during their visit to the Omaha and Lincoln Nebraska area. Stan was very impressed with the football facilities at the University of Nebraska. We have lost a giant in the world of collecting. Condolences to Claire and the family. Roy Katskee
  2. I found one in Walnut, Iowa in a antique store. It is not the same graphics but still very rare. It was a very large one as is this one. I sold it with my first marble collection to Burt Cohen in 1988. I have no idea what Burt did with it as he has passed on. Sorry Craig Roy K.
  3. Wonderful Peltier site. All the information you could ask for. Great Job of photographing.
  4. That is the one. Also Zaboo has one up this week.
  5. It is time to renew any information on Gutta Percha marbles. There is one on EBay going for over $250. Roy It sold for $360.
  6. I used to know a few guys who collected "footballs". But that was years ago at Amana, Iowa. I am sure they have moved on to other types. If I remember right they were about $2 to $5. They are somewhat unusual. If you like em - keep em. B-80
  7. LLoyd was an American gem. He had a great sense of humor and had a unique outlook on life. I enjoyed our many visits at the Amana Iowa shows that we attended. Lloyd loved the life that he and his wife shared in Pennsylvania. He always talked about the great hunting near his home and of course his pure bred dogs, I am proud to say that he was my friend.

  8. Sounds like a plan. You will not regret it.
  9. The Des Moines Marble Club put on a first rate show this past week. It may be the finest show that I have attended in my 38 years of marble collecting. Sometimes the stars align just right and bring together motivated sellers and eager buyers along with a savy promoter produces a sold out show room with plenty of walk in traffic. One could not ask for anything more. Chad Cline deserves a huge round of congratulations! Roy Katskee
  10. Leroy Johnson known nationally as the "Marble Mender" passed away on March 9th 2018 in York, Nebraska. He was 82. Leroy was a Navy veteran who enlisted right after high school in 1954. Leroy loved to hunt, fish and restore old marbles. He is survived by his wife Judy, 4 sons and 10 grandchildren.
  11. Interesting. The seller doesn't know what it is but it has to be worth $500 to $750. Ebay is like a thieves paradise. Buyer beware.
  12. That price was probably paid just for the Lutz. It is an unusual color that Lutzheads look for.
  13. This has truly been a labor of love for Scott. I was lucky enough to be in on the 1st discovery of artifacts from the archives of Boys Town in Omaha, Ne. This set the course for Scott to further explore the VFW sponsorship of National Marble Tournaments. This exhibit has gone way past my expectation of what Scott was researching. I plan on buying the book and having it signed at the Kansas City marble show in March.' Roy Katskee
  14. You might try Phil Thomas in Newton, Iowa. He makes great boxes. He might have made some. Phil is usually at the Des Moines show in June.
  15. Scott, you deserve an "Oscar" for producing this video. It is a very important addition to our marble history. Congratulations. Roy
