But I have to wonder if you could know about every possession Wayne Newton had no matter how many times you had been to his house or how well you knew him. Personally, I have cues my closest friends don't know about...nor my wife...LOL!

It leaves at least maybe a little room for mystery.

It makes me wonder if any Huebler aficionados are specifically aware of this cue.

.

I asked him**about other cues and there are none.

Just playing junk cues by his table. There is no room for anything sadly.

**Wayne (I’ve known Wayne forever as I mentioned, been to his house several times for dinners etc.) Only one notable cue-the Huebler. The other collectibles he had were beyond amazing. Elvis, Rat Pack, on and on and on. It’s really a shame how this all ended up.

Last edit: This is mostly speculative on my part, the rest of this post is factual. I don’t believe any Huebler guys know about this cue-aside from guys who worked for Paul years ago. It was a wedding gift from Gleason and it just sat in the Red Room the whole time among Elvis and Rat Pack stuff in its matching coffin style case. The bumper on the cue was a little dry(happens faster in Vegas) and the tip was unchalked. Shafts were brand new. I’m positive the cue was never screwed together. It’s doubtful that anyone saw it that was into pool or cues. When Wayne dug it out of the room and opened it he commented that he hadn’t looked at it in years.

Factual: He was interested in my cues, I mentioned Bushka’s-Wayne wasn’t aware what they are, he was amazed that cues could be so expensive.

I made the conscious decision to not mention it here(I was posting often back when I saw it). I mentioned it to a couple close friends and that’s it. I saw it in late 2010 or early 2011. When I was still full time living in Vegas.
