I have the cue Bob vanover won 10 or so Texas Opens with
The cue he ran the set 9Racks against Lizard

bert schrager cue and Fellini Fancy case made for Bob with his name engraved

Bob was the best player in the world who held a full time job,never a road player but
generally recognized as one of the greats

Many in Dallas thought he could beat anyone in the area including CJ

I saw him play a set with Buddy Hall and to my surprise many locals took Bob
to win even money

Bob won countless tournaments with this cue beating great players including Keith Mc Credie

and other great players

I just bought the cue yesterday to sell to someone who loved Bob or famous players
historical cues

After his playing days bob loaned the cue to Jack Potter who won many the dollar and loved the cue

This is one of the few threads, I wished you would/could post pics. I bet you have had more gems than most.

I know this is from an old post:

(Re: GB)-
Quote:
At the time I was fooling around restoring, inlaying and refinishing cues so we talked for quite a while and he showed me how he put on his finish and gave me a jar of his finish to try
Was it ever determined what the finish was?

Also, how did GB do inlays?
Did he have a pantograph?
If so, was it a Gorton, or other?

thanks!

I actually hit a few balls with that cue..
Jimmy is from my hometown Scranton ,Pa.
I am guessing it was around 1980.
HE came into Idle hour lanes to practice and called me over to see his cue.
I asked to hit a few with it and he handed it to me..
I knew him pretty well so its not like he handed it to anybody..
just a little FYI on History of it.....

You just never know who is online and this one is living proof. I would like to see CJ back on here, he's on another website and he sent me a Friend request a few years back. A Friend request among 5,000 others is nothing compared to you owning that cue.

Thanks for posting this, the cue is legendary.
I've been playing with this cue for the last 3 or 4 times I've played and it plays well. Maybe not as well for me as it did CJ, but whose counting balls?
