I got this cue sitting in the closet in original condition from the 1996 Million Dollar Challenge Tournament, where Earl Strickland ran the 11 racks of 9-ball to win the $1,000,000 prize.

This was CJ's TV cue and he won the tournament with it...beating Earl in the finals.

I've seen this greeting card a couple of times. I found this copy while going through some old files. It might still be available somewhere. I still have a few pool friends who don't do email (or try to avoid it).

Over 100 years ago, an English Billiards pro found himself in this delicate position,,,
..he was prepared...he took a pen from his vest pocket...it had a leather tip on it...
...he made the billiard without double hitting.....the ref was astounded...
...after much pondering, he called it a foul stroke

Well, Cuebuddy would’ve given the ref a much bigger headache...
...he makes REAL cues that could handle that billiard.

It looks like an angle that shows you the in-off angle for a half-ball hit at English billiards (roughly 35 degrees of cue-ball deflection off the object ball for a rolling cue ball).

A nice piece of memorabilia would be the first multi-function tip shaper/tapper that was in wide use. It was developed and sold by Lou Butera in the mid-1970's. I'll see if I can get my hands on one for you.

If Buddy Hall put his name on it, it must be good.
Bought mine around 20 years ago, they still sell them.

I like the story! And I am glad you like the case.I needed something that was decent protection and wouldn't cost an arm and leg....originally meant for a toothbrush
The wood on that mini cue is curly Cypress (maybe the only cue ever made from Cypress) and it has Buffalo horn butt cap and joint.
I'm glad you have the cue and thanks for everything you do for the forum.I intend on making a snooker cue for your collection also.

Afternoon,

Here's a couple cool pool related advertising pencils. The "8 ball" pencil was made in USA by a company named Redipoint. It features marketing for a local company that's long been defunct. I have to believe Redipoint made similar pencils for other companies as well? The Bruns pencil is a score that I picked up recently from an estate. Both work.

Both pencils are very cool, the Carom King pencil looks to have a real label and I bet it dates from the very few years that the real cues were produced. There can't be many of those that were made or maybe that was a "one off"? Maybe it was not even made by Brunswick but from someone that had an extra label, what ever the case its very unique.
