    Went to a garage sale to look at this 8 ball. When I got there I couldn't believe my eyes. A true HUO Bally 8 ball. Struck a deal with the nephew of the guy running the garage sale for $450 and paid him. I started taking apart the game and was walking out to my truck with the head in my hands, when suddenly the Uncle stopped me and said the deal was off and that the price his nephew told me was way out of range. After standing there in shock and pleading with him he handed me over my cash back and asked me to leave.

    I still think of this game even though it's been over 10 years ago.

    I had two other Bally 8 balls and enjoyed for a while, but this one because of condition would have been a keeper for life. It was so nice!

    I wasn't too upset that day since I was pulling in 5 games per week from homes here in NJ back then and almost everyone was in excellent condition with low plays. I never was a greedy person and shrugged this lost off with ease. Never found out what happened to the game.
