I was just thinking last week that a BALL SET COLLECTOR thread should 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 and weights of the cue ball and avg object ball weights. I also put together many "custom" sets for certain games so it 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
You just had to get this started, didn't you!
I better run off quick and confess to my ball collecting addiction before this thread leaks out to my wonderful, understanding wife somehow
