redhat

Marble Lovers/Collectors here is the perfect hat for you!

We got this unique Marble Hat at a Marble Show back in the 80’s or early 90s. We believe it was made by The Marble Queen of Perry Hall. She had taken fabric that had marbles printed on it and cut the marbles out and glued over 100 on the surface of this Ball Cap with fabric glue. It is truly 1 of a kind!

It is a standard Red cotton Ball Cap with an adjustable plastic back strap, one size fits all. There is a bit of forehead wear along the front of the inside of the headband but otherwise it’s in great shape.

Wear your Marbles proudly!

redbox2


These red boxes were what the marble companies would send to the stores that bought their marbles, it was then up to the individual merchant to decide how many marbles they wanted to put in for 10 cents. These boxes were never used, are still folded flat and most still have the cardboard that was die cut and would normally be punched out so you could see the marbles inside. They are in excellent condition.
