Somebody offered me $25 for these marbles, and I know nothing about marbles, or if $25 is a fair offer.

I'm hoping someone here can tell me?

Here's a couple photos. If needed I can take more photos of any that need a better view.

Thanks!

Rick

I separated the plain colors from the rest. I figured these probably are nothing...

25 would be fair if I were buying them. LOL[;)] Condition is every thing. Tiny nicks, bites, etc take off value. If in great shape the ones I have circled in red ( All Akro marbles) would be worth alot more than that. The little green,red,white marble up front at the 4" mark on the ruler would be worth more than 25 bucks by itself.

Nice marbles. I would be interested in buying them if they are in good shape. Send me a pm if interested in selling them & we can work out a price. Paul :)

Road Dog, thanks for your help and your input. I've got to take the time to learn how to do that someday, how you drew on the photo like you did.

idigjars, thank you for contacting me, the deal, and nice talking with ya!
