Quick Tip

The most valuable marbles are pre-1950's. Collectors are looking for marbles made in the late 1800's through the 1940's.

Why? It was about 1950 that the Japanese started making the cat-eye style marbles. These popular marbles were very cheap to buy and put most of the remaining marble companies in the U.S.A. out of business.
