No, not Jabo classics 

Cool things from past threads that you don't always remember how to get to but you think of from time to time and newbies might have fun with! 

I LOVE this song!

Was thinking of this one today and couldn't find it easily -- which is why I started this thread -- the mosaic in the headboard from the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith .....  18000 marbles.

This is one I think of from time to time, especially when peewees are mentioned.   "No larger than a good-sized marrowfat pea."  

1883 

Marbles, and Where They Come From, by A. W. Roberts

If you haven't seen that one yet, do check it out.  It's informative and charming.  And illustrated.

Here's a provocative classic.  Sports Illustrated, June 20, 1955 .... this is a large-ish size but it's displaying smaller for me here. If I click on it three times I get a bigger copy. Might work for you.

Another provocative one for a different reason ....

(P.s., article was wrong -- it was Martin's son Charles, not Martin.)
