Pool Ball Collector
Here's my two Camels.
Good evening, Brandon.
Ah, you have the pool ball collecting bug, sir, there's no going back now I'm afraid.
That's a lovely set you've posted up, older than any in my own collection. Would they be bakelite? They seem to have the same rich, bright lustre to my eye. I'm not really qualified to appraise the value of anything pre 1970, my expertise lies elsewhere, but I'm sure a few of the regulars will pop in later to offer some sound advice.
Here's my first set by the way. Can't wait for my table to get here in a few months!
Nice showings of balls, boys.
May I suggest a friendly game of "Blackball" Rubik's, using your splendid OLD No. 7 BALL along with 7 reds and 7 yellows - and to make the game enticing, let's have an encased bottle of Jack Daniels Sinatra Century be the prized possession we are after.....of course a drawn out race to 100 points would seem appropriate ---- and let's play using the rules of Point System Eight Ball shall we?
See what collecting balls does, folks? Gets one thinking of new ways to play the games....rack em, RC!

Some sensational sphere sharing, Mr Bond!
What can you tell us about the strange man's face on that 12 ball ;-) Is that part of a set or is there a more intriguing storyline?
Are your showings part of your personal collection or destined for the Museum, sir?
Mosconi could have been a part of a set, I'm not sure, but I kinda doubt it.
I found the ball attached to a memorial plaque featuring Mosconi. There was a small round ball holder attached to the plaque with the ball inside. Perhaps there was a set of individual plaques featuring various pros at the time? But, I have not seen others like it, so I suppose I can't be sure.
I'm showing you a few of both mine and The Museum's holdings. Mine will all end up in the museum collection anyway lol
