Luther Lassiter took his pool cues seriously

A Luther Lassiter Balabushka joins the ranks of fabulous pool cues hitting auctions this year.

Luther "Wimpy" Lassiter's pride and joy, a George Herman Balabushka custom cue, was recently posted on eBay.com for a starting bid of $45,000.00 US. Why so much money?

Lassiter is arguably the greatest 9-Ball player of all time. And add Balabushka's devastatingly brilliant cue craftsmanship and you have a real winner.

While I admit to having paid four figures for really fine cue work, I at least got to shoot with my most expensive cues. I can't imagine anyone but an enthusiastic millionaire ever taking more than a few shots with his new Lassiter Balabushka--unless he wanted to potentially incur the wrath of an insurance company. Out of sight!
