I saw three of the players play (Crane, Katsura, and Procita) and had a cue made by Zimmerman. A friend(?) of mine once tried to steer me into a one pocket game with Procita. I declined as I wanted to play nine ball.

Here is the tournament chart on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masako...hion_sheet.png

I have a copy of this photo among some of the things Robert Byrne bequeathed to the USBA.
Bob's desire was for the USBA to raise money through the sale of what was donated.
This photo will be for sale once everything is inventoried and cataloged.

The copy I have was poorly framed and the print is wrinkled but I think it can be repaired to nearly new condition.

Did Hoppe pronounce his name like "hop" or "hoppy".
(I've heard people say both)

Why no pants dropping below the belt line ???

Perhaps something to be re-learned to elevate the game(s).

According to the CPI inflation calculator, that is the equivalent of $184,000 today.

But could he beat them while wearing the required suit?

That is how all major tournaments were conducted through the 1960s in the US. The World 14.1 in 1977 was in coat and tie.
