APPRAISALS

Getting Started

If you have a few marbles you need some help identifying or need an approximate value, we are always happy to try and help you out at no cost. Simply email a digital image to us so we can give you a more accurate description of the marbles.

If you have just one or a few marbles, you can send individual shots of each marble if you like. A group shot is fine also.

If you have a large amount of marbles save yourself time by sorting your marbles into groups of 30 or 40 marbles. (larger groups are fine if you have 100's)

Quickly eliminate marbles of little value by taking out all solid color game marbles, transparent clear glass marbles of any color and all of the cat-eye style marbles. (these have no value to collectors) See pictures below for examples.

What If I Can't Send Digital Images?

If you cannot personally send a digital image, many times you can get a friend or family member to help you out. If that's not an option, you can take pictures with a regular film camera and send me the developed pictures through regular mail. Others will simply package the marbles and send them to me.

What Happens Next

If I see marbles that are of value, I will send your image back to you with arrows pointing out marbles that are worth taking a closer look at. Sometimes I might give you a phone call as well.

Please be patient. This is a free service and I attempt to get back with you within 48 hours. In the last few months, appraisal requests have been at an all time high due to the economy. I will get back with you as soon as possible.

How Do You Determine Value?

Please note: The approximate values I quote are based on the current marble market based on eBay sales and marble shows. I attend approximately six marble shows a year around the USA. The current collectibles market has dropped significantly due to the economy and marble prices have also fallen.

If you are comparing my appraisal to book values realize that most of these books are older and prices for some of the marbles may have gone up and many may have gone down since publishing.
