Well, if the display from Huggins and Scott is to be believed, there are 24 series of 20 each. That should mean there are 480 different. I don't have the checklist, so I wonder if that many were actually produced.

The checklist I have (SCD Vintage BB Cards 3rd edition) says "while the packaging says "Collect all 24 Series" only 120 marbles were actually issued" It also does not mention anything about Big or Small heads or any other variation - so I wonder also how many there actually are?

Default check the viewing angle

Firstly - based on my experience, I believe the set to be complete at 120 - 6 packages with 20 marbles per package. Regarding the "big head" - take a real careful look from different angles (through different parts of the clear marble) understanding that the paper inside may be situated in a different place in each one - if I recall correctly certain parts of the marble have a magnifying type effect. For sure the pictures you posted are very different angles.

The package says some are autographed, how would that work? They are pretty cool , I wonder if my old pogs will ever be collected.

I have re-looked and turned them every which way. The Nye definitely has a big and small head.

I wonder if there are any other variations? I hate it when this happens to me as now I have another research project
