Pool ball collecting. - 03-12-2016, 09:58 AM

Good afternoon, everyone.

Over the years I have amassed quite a varied mix of pool balls. Does anyone else share this hobby and could perhaps post up a few photographs? I'd be keen to increase my collection if there's some nice sets attracting dust in your attic.

UPDATE.

As the thread has proved popular (we're at a mighty 660 posts and counting) I thought it might be a good idea to compile an index in order to help folks find a particular ball or set of personal interest. Post numbers are indicated in red. Many thanks indeed to all who have contributed thus far, I'll endeavour to update the index every couple hundred posts or so.

Best wishes,
RC.

I have been looking for a BBC Ball Rack so that I can start collecting some of the older different styles of Clay Balls. I do have a newer Clock with a set of clay balls.

I don't have any clay balls in my collection, mine are all forty years old or younger. The ones that got away for me were a complete set of marbled balls with Joe Camel logos where the numbers usually appear, I balked at the price tag and have regretted it ever since as I've never seen another. If anyone has a set in mint condition I would be a willing customer.

Do you have any pictures you could share, sir?

Pool ball collecting. - 03-12-2016, 10:45 AM

I was just thinking last week that a POOL BALL COLLECTING thread be started to share just a hobby within this great diverse game of pocket billiards

I am an avid and passionate "ball set collector" myself and think this is a fabulous idea - from sharing ideas and info on sets to pictures and even buying/selling.

I have focused on those sets that I can pull out of the display cabinets and actually play with - all modern sets within the last 5 decades with each set having its own tray, complete with set names as well as the weights of the cue ball and avg object ball weights. I also put together many "custom" sets for certain games so a particular tray is ready to go without cannibalizing numerous sets to create a certain game - such as Baseball - using the Aramith Premier balls pictured here as one example...



My collection is passing 70+ sets so far, and starting to acquire the more rare, lesser known and less available sets that can be played and appreciated. Someone has to care for these balls

Most appreciative that you started this thread, Rubik's Cube!

I better run off quick and confess to my ball collecting addiction before this thread leaks out to my wonderful, understanding wife somehow

You just had to get this started, didn't you!

That's a lovely Baseball set, sir, many thanks for sharing.

I ordered the same set online many years ago, but when they arrived the black-striped 16 ball was missing! I've been trying ever since to buy that single ball in mint condition to no avail.

Sincere apologies my photographs are so large by the way, I'm not sufficiently computer savvy to know what's going wrong.

No, sir, I'm far too protective of my collection.

I only ever buy mint condition and never play with them. More fool me, I guess, but it's just the way I'm wired; I get depressed if one is dropped or scratched.

Well ---- I may have that ball you need and its new never hit - polished and cared for though

And if not --- I know where you can get the baseball add-on set in those Premiers...

Many thanks, indeed, Stickman, that's a beautiful and interesting set.

I have seen the Roman numeral sets for sale online a few times, but they have always been quite scuffed and worn so haven't placed a bid. Do you know how much the gentleman from your link wants for his set, sir?

Many thanks indeed, sir.

How much would you charge me for the single 16 ball? Please bear in mind the shipping costs as I live in England.
