No joke, there are collectors and they can be worth a LOT if you have certain ones.

Go search google for Marble collectors and you will be surprised.

Some of them are worth THOUSANDS.

The ones w/objects in them are worth a LOT! If you have one with an American Flag inside, that's even better! Get them appraised..........

Probably for nostalgia, don't know if people actually collect them though...my dad grew up in the 40-50's and played marbles...do you have any big "shooters" I think they are called?

Never seen such fantasy marbles, are you sure they are marbles?

I played marbles as a child, always won all the marbles. Had to give some back so I had someone to play marbles with.

If those are true marbles, they are rare and they should be collectibles. Have them checked by an expert in collectibles.

Yes some are very collectable an bring big bucks at auctions. Find a place to get them honestly appraised. Don't tell them you are wanting to sell them, just getting them appraised.

There are collectors for just about everything.
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

Oooooo! I love marbles!

We used to play them at recess in grammar school.

Re: I have a ton of old marbles from the 40's, and 50's - are they worth anything?
The ones with the animals in them are called sulphide marbles and they are worth a LOT of money. Do not let anyone tell you that they are not. Look them up, and you will see that they go for hundreds of dollars each, and certain ones go for thousands. Those prices are for the sulphides, the other ones generally don't have as much value unless it is a rare pattern or from a rare company. Many marble dealers are scam artists as I have found out from personal experience in dealing with them. A common trick that they use is they say that they will appraise your collection, and all they ask for in return is a small amount of marbles from your collection. Of course they will pick the best, most valuable one(s) for themselves, and will say that the ones that they picked aren't worth a lot. Be very wary, and do research so that you don't get burned.

Go to about.com and they'll show pictures of certain marbles with their value. Some of the one's with pictures are worth around $200 - $1000 each!! Crazy! Good luck!
