This is believed to be the largest vintage marble known to exist and one of the rarest marbles Morphy's has sold at auction. A few as-made surface marks.

Condition (9.7). Size 3 - 1/16" Dia.

Estimate: 8,000.00 - 12,000.00


I thought some of the sulphides went pretty cheap. I didnt realize that auction was held the same weekend as the canton show, that's kinda odd...

Danny Turner "RUNNING RABBIT sold that marble about 10 years ago for $3250. It seemed foolish to have the auction on the same day as the show. I was at the show and phone bid to little success. A 2"+ black clam 8.8 condition brought $5500 + buyers commision sure like mine a lot better. So as usual the good stuff sells. Bill

Anything that big (three inches???) ain't no marble. It's an orb. Or a sphere, or something . . .

But that's just me, who won't buy anything over 1 1/8, 'cause anything bigger just ain't a . . .
