Peewee akros?

The salesmens cases that I have seen do not list anything under 9/16".

That being said--the Popeye boxes that we are all familiar with did include one "peewee" patch. It was placed on top of the pouch in the original sale.

I believe that it was called a swee-pea by collectors named after Popeyes little adopted son.

If Akro made 9/16" marbles there are bound to be a few that are smaller, just a result of the marble making process.

Of the older companies, Peltier is the only one that I know of that actually produced peewee marbles.

Marble--On!!

So do you think there are less Akro peewee marbles than Peltier

I have factory packaged weewee sized peewees (3/8” and under) by Vitro and MK.  I have old peewees by Alley, Champion, Ravenswood, Heaton, Cairo, Akro, Pelt, and others.  Just sharing some peewee info

I don't think I have any Alley peewee...

Lots of Jabo ..we're Jabo made on the Peltier machine just wondering 🤔 

The JABO Classic peewees were made on the 5/8” rollers they were using for the 5/8” marbles.  They had several different 5/8” rollers that were used over the years and only know for sure what was used in 91.  In 2011 and 2012 they used the Vitro peewee rollers to make a few runs of weewee sized peewees.  I do not believe JABO used a Pelt set of peewee rollers to run marbles ever.

Thank you for the information 👍
