Bob Vanover's cue - 06-09-2019, 09:27 AM

that he won about 10 Texas Opens in a row
Including running 11 racks in a row

comes with a Fellini with his name on it
$1985

really a great Schrager cue,fancy and it won all those tournaments
with a little help from BobVanover

this is a true piece of history ,sure to please you and
attract attention

dean


by the way,this is a very fancy super inlay cue worth more than$2000
on its own


i am hoping to sell it to a friend of Bob Vanover

214 477 7323

The cue was identified by Jack Potter,a friend of Bob's and mine and Cathy Vanover,Bob's wife

I was told he ran 2 racks to finish the semi finals and 9 racks from the break against Lizard

Now I am told he might have played Mc Dermott in that tournament,but had played
the scrager for many many years and won many Texas Opens

Right, Robin. And also a race to 9, not 11. We were both there. Steve won lag, broke, nothing fell, and the rest was history.

He is widely known in Texas as a genuine monster player.
Great Schrager cue, a great value, and a special named case to go along with it!
Cathy and Jack giving provenance, it gets no better, a genuine collectible.

Thanks to Will for the kind words
but I may have misrepresented the part of my story
about Bob running 11 racks to win the texas Open

Robin has informed us that Bob was playing a mc dermott for that special feat

so i was wrong,but i have been told he won a bunch of Texas Opens with my schrager


Thanks for straitening me out,I had only part of my story right

I sold one of bob's Felleni cases and I have his tooled one
that this cue he played for years was in

Bob's Shrager cue is truly one the nicest I have ever laid eyes on. Deano is offering up a bargain and no one has jumped on it yet.

thanks for the kind words


i was hoping it would find a loving home

bob was truly loved by people in the area
he was a pool legend down here,won every time he played
and he was an honest businessman,and family man

i didn't know him very well as he was more of a tournament player and i wasn't anywhere near that level

he was not flashy ,but he seemed to be always in shape

Little about Bobs Cue - 06-11-2019, 05:13 AM

This really is a beautiful cue. I have a picture of it on my phone.When Dean
was buying it he had the seller send me a picture to verify that it was the cue.
I am not as computer savvy as Dean so I will try to get my wife or grandson
to help me post a picture. It is fancy but very tastefully done, with one of the
coolest butt sleeves ever. It has a 3/8 10 pen and the old Westinghouse
micarta joint. I was at Dean's last week and it is in very good condition. I
remembered that Bob sent it back to Scharger to be refinished shortly before
he retired it. Oh by the way (are you ready for this) it hits a ton.

If there was ever a Texas Billiards Hall of Fame/Collectables that cue would be in the top 10 things to find, such history and a shame its not really appreciated like it should be.
