Ok, I know some guys are sitting on some great old classic cases out there. We've seen a few sea turtle prints come out of the woodwork in recent months. What other neat ones do people have tucked away ??

Here's a nice one I picked up at the SBE.

I don't have anything "special", just a black one. But I have had it since 1985 and it holds my block letter JOSS, so it is special to me.

A few extra keys, 20 of them :thumbup::

Here are a couple from in the back of the closet. Black one bought from original owner here in Seattle holds one of the nicest Roger Pettit cues he has made. Diamond back holds first snake wood tascarella cue made. Great Cases for great cues.

I need to dig out the cases and take newer pics, but for now you can see a couple of nice Fellini's (and a Centennial) hiding under a couple of rare Rambow cues.

Thanks for all the pics and links. Keep 'em coming. I'm sure everyone would like to see more of these treasured cases. They are some of the most iconic ever made imho.

Absolutely.

It's amazing how true that is. There are obviously other cases of this genre that are of equal quality and even more rare, yet they don't carry quite the same iconic status.

I myself am very fascinated with these cases.

Why? How?

I think that one of the things that has helped the Fellini cases gain their status is the cues that they held. Fellini cases have famously held many of the best and iconic cues out there. When such cues "turn up" they are often in a Fellini case. Even more than that, we know that these were often "real players", which gives them a kind of "mystique" as we associate them with many great matches, great action, road players, and simply great pool.

Right now, sitting in the closets of old players all over the country are cues like JOSS, JW, Scruggs, Spain, Gina, etc, and even a Bushka or two that haven't been touched in years, maybe decades. The cues have dark shafts, likely with ivory ferrules. They are wrapped with Cortland or masterfully finished leather. The finish is likely thin and maybe yellowed. They were made by the hands of masters and played a lot of great pool in old school pool halls...many of which are gone. You can picture them. You're hoping you will be the one to find the next one. Even just holding one is a thrill. And you know that you are picturing them all in Fellini cases.
