Trick Billiards 1934
Ogdens Sports Miscellaneous Trick Billiards 1934 Trick Billiards 1934 50 - These contain trick shots performed by A. Newman-Mond who was an expert and knew every trick shot in the book. Indeed there is a British Pathe clip online from 1940 showing him in action. This set was also reprinted in 2001. The cards feature the green baize of the table with diagrams showing how to hit the balls to make the shot required and the numbered adhesive backs give full details of how to achieve this. We particularly like the ‘Potting a ball with a penny’ trick which uses a penny resting against a cushion as a cue-ball and we are told that you just had to tap the coin with the cue and the penny would roll in an arc and knock in the ball at the other end of the table. Mr Newman-Mond assures us that “with a little practice this trick can be done almost every time”. Somehow we doubt that, but it does make you want to have a go. Size 68 x 36mm.
