You never know someone with more $ than sense might buy it but it's not likely. W O P for $500, well it already happened. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif A fellow from an "upscale" room in DC bought it. LOL I won't mention the name but there is one born every minute! His buddy got upset at me here on this board for calling the game one hole. ha ha ha They just need to find a Prima-Donna with enough cash!!!

I don't know...I saw a Winning One Pocket go for $500 autographed. LOL. If someone gave me $9950 to front most of this I still wouldn't put up my $50 end of the cost.

Mike...World's Greatest Poolplayer??? P.T. Barnum said it best: "There's a sucker born every minute...and TWO to take him!" Nobody could be THAT dumb! LMAO For that kind of money, you should get Rudolph's bones! This is almost as funny as the $10,000 entry/$1,000,000 1st Prize 'alleged' pool tournament...that NEVER happened!

FWIW...I have an autographed copy of Winning One Pocket, autographed by the author, and several prominent older players, as well. Anybody wanting to offer ME $500 can have it RIGHT NOW! I'll even pay shipping! LOL

What's going on with the Des Moines poolroom? BTW, I emailed you a week ago about early dinner on 1/22...maybe I should have emailed Jen? LOL

Since Minnesota Fats was a fictional character created in the novel "The Hustler", who signed the certificate of authenticity, Superman?

I think I got one that's better. Read the description, look at the price, and bear in mind he's selling a cue worth about $200. This is how not to describe it. And... how do you like the picture?

E-Bay Meucci Auction (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&amp;item=3646059092&amp;category=21 212)

This seller does not believe in punctuation.

Holy Sh*t!

I think that guy is serious!

Amazing, he has been registered since Nov 98 but has no feedback at all. Just browsing I guess.
