Kokomo September 11th, 2010


Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve made it to a show.  Fortunately for me the good ole Indiana Marble Club puts on two shows a year, one in Indianapolis and one in Kokomo.  As usual the show was great.  Here are a few pictures and comments.


1. Some of the folks that make it happen. Club President, Beth Morris.

2. Greg Morris and his young marble collecting protégé.

3. Kim W, Kim is the clubs Secretary.

4. And last but not least, Mike A.  Mike is the clubs VP.  On a side note, I always wonder what people at the hotels think when they see a bunch of people walking around with pistol cases.

31. From what I understand the marbles were manufactured on Jabo machines using KOG company glass.

32. They had some nice sets put together for reasonable prices.  If you would like to contact them through their website

34. The dug Kokomo’s that they were looking at.

35. Mike Meade.

36. Mike had an interesting thing going on.  He had made box sets of all the Jabo runs.  I think that he excluded the tank washes but each box contains seven rows of five marbles from each run.  He currently has 42 runs represented and is selling them as a collection.  If you want his contact info e-mail me.
