  4. Mike Johnson reply: In Dave's own words- - he was General Manager at Champion Agate until mid 1991 - he left there in that same year and made his first run of Classics in Oct, 1991 at JABO. JABO, INC was organized in 1987 by Jack Bogard and JOanne Argabrite and they made industrial marbles until Dave got there - - - this info came from all three of those people. Mike Johnson
  5. Per Michael Johnson: "Dave McCullough went to JABO in mid-1991 and made his first run of Classics in October, 1991. Before that, JABO only made industrial marbles."
