Second from the left is stunning.
Fourth from the right is my type of player.
Hats off to a great collection.

Thanks for posting Troy..
Joel is an amazing story in himself.
From Cue Dealer ( Sending Photos like John Wright), to
one of the most respected Cue Makers.
We're fortunate to be able to see his works when collectors like yourself
show your collections..
To see all that work done and completed.
The total hours spent during those days and nights.
What were we doing when Joel was creating art?

Joel/Troy has a lot to show..
I got memories, worth diddly..

Honest questions, have any seen hours of play, or do you just store them for safe keeping? If I was lucky enoght to look, I would remove my glasses for fear of them falling off, and scratching something. Awesome collection.

used to be in Chicago , an Asian Doctor...
I think Dr Wu "
He had a really nice group of cues-
Several nice Herceks, DPK, Gus Szamboti ,

"You sure have really unique cues from Joel,
I like the hoppe style cue, next to last on the right-
Super Sharp old school cue

All contain amazing work. I lean more traditionally, in spite of appreciating fine work in any config.
The second one from the right really speaks to me. Style, colors, materials... All right up my alley.
Joel has done so much to like!!

If you're gonna sell cues, buy a scale and calipers.

Main players: 1930's Gilbert Titlist, Custom Olneys. Piloted joints for me.
Play shafts: Cash Cues ferrule-less and OB Classic
Break: X Breaker & Gilbert JB - both w/ OB Break shafts
Jump: Lomax

Oh my, to be blessed with this many cues from my all time favorite cue-maker would be a dream come true.
Your predilection for ivory joint cues coincides with my own preference so this assembly is even more special.

There are some glorious examples of Joel’s amazing cue-making skills and the 2nd from the right is my favorite.
The cue’s forearm wood is amazing, the wrap looks like my favorite kind & Szamboti sleeve design is beautiful.
