THIS WEB SITE IS DEDICATED TO THE HOBBY OF COLLECTING ANTIQUE, VINTAGE, AND CONTEMPORARY MARBLES, AND THOSE WHO PARTICIPATE IN IT. - Alan Basinet
Buddy Alan Basinet
We lost an icon in the marble community in 2012. Alans reputation among marble collectors was beyond reproach. He was always willing to take time to help everyone learn more about marbles. His website, Alans Marble Connection/MarbleAlan.com crashed in 2007 and all the information was lost. His site was an invaluable resource to collectors on how to identify marbles, reproductions and fakes, and general knowledge for the beginner and expert alike on grading marbles and much more. It had over 700,000 visitors in the few years it was open and has been missed terribly since it went down.
Using the web archives, I have carefully recreated the original MarbleAlan website just like it was in 2007. This will always remain here as a memorial to Alans legacy. Small updates and changes to pictures, new names for marbles, etc. will be made to try and keep it current. Alan, you will be missed!

Wherever there is a collectibles
market, there will be reproductions. The hobby of marble collecting is certainly no
exception and as the popularity of the hobby soars, so does the number of people trying to
make money from producing and/or selling reproductions.
