Thanks for sharing. Can you tell if any of the marbles are a big head? I have started my research project to little avail.

Jim, I know this issue pretty well. I actually bought some when they were issued. I sure these "big head" marbles are not variations. This is a very low tech item. Some of them had the placement of the player either higher or lower than the middle of the marble, thus the "big head" appearance. That's my opinion anyway.

Wow. I never saw the marbles when I was growing up, but I did collect a few of the rubber balls from that same timeframe and which were about the same size.

Default Unopened Series 5 Package

You used to be able to find them once in a while on unopened packages like the one shown. Those seem to be buried in collections as I can't recall the last time I saw one publicly offered. Hope that helps. Some bigger names - Clemente, Mays, Rose - no Mantle.
I have Series 5 with no particular personal attachment. I am certainly open to selling it.
