  1. Ron's off hunting, so I'm taking the liberty of posting a link to the West Virginia Marble Collector's Club news page, where I set up links to the gallery. Kidz Club pictures from Ron and Nola providing marble info. and games for kids at the annual Gilmore community fair event. Also, my pictures taken at the 2018 Sistersville marble festival during a slow period late Saturday. It was my only chance to get away from my display after a bustling morning and afternoon. Of course, I had to get a few shots of the Marblewagon. After all, it was the first time I have taken it out in three years due to the restoration. I literally got the driver seat and stripe applied Thursday, before driving up Friday morning. Have yet to install the passenger seat! People seemed to like purple over the former yellow. Great time. I can't thank Jim King enough for managing this event. Thanks to all the crew and marble friends who helped set up and tear down. You know who you are. Oh, Bill, bill, bill. So close...but so faaar away. Hope you're doing better.

Killer Pelts! Nice variety of Davis machine made.

    Y'all ever see a Jabo like this?

    Without digging them out, It is likely either Joker II, Ultra, or E.T. Crystal. Me sways to Ultra.

    The Online Cairo Guide

    After a few discussions, David Tamulevich and I collaborated to get a pictorial guide to Cairo Novelty marbles online via-the West Virginia Marble Collector's Club web site. David's Archaeological finds, packaging and cross referencing collections have resulted in a knowledge base on the matter, second to none. Enjoy. http://westvirginiamarblecollectorsclub.com/identification/?cat=17&pg=1

    With A Name Like Marbledude

    Let me give credit where credit is due. I've had many blow outs with many sellers. Fortunately, many of those were willing to make amends and we are able to have civilized dealings. Dave McCullough, Rick Hall, Steve Sturtz, Russ Kasmar, and many more. If any seller thinks they have a big grievance with me, they should know they are small peanuts in comparison to the fore mentioned sellers, in spite of any and all other opinions. Yes, I've ranted. Yes, I'm a bit pissed off. Sometimes...at three in the morning, my daily perusal of ebay can be really aggravating. If I've offended anyone, I apologize. Like I said, we all make mistakes. To those who contact me when I make a mistake, thank you. To those who can take some critique, you're a gem in a field of debris. I'm always open to take the high road if we can walk it together. Happy Holidays. To the others, go on and cry to the moderators of this board.

    Wvmcc Website Mini Update

    Had some issues with the site since a server upgrade. Any empty links are now fixed. I finally added some pictures from the Sistersville Marble Fest'. Beautiful weather this year. Big, big thanks to Jim King for the tremendous effort to make it happen. Pretty cool to have half the downtown roped off for marble maniacs. The pictures can also be found accessed within the link posted below in news/events, if you want to save time with navigation. http://westvirginiamarblecollectorsclub ... ew=10&pg=1 I updated the News/Events. Thanks to all of you out there who posted info. online. Some listings are not yet complete, but the dates and times are accurate, that is if Cairo is a go. http://westvirginiamarblecollectorsclub.com/news/
