Default Billiards Fans? Old Spalding Pool Cue Rack...WELL on 2nd Thought maybe FISHING FANS?

I got this pool cue rack at a recent local auction - i have never seen another early spalding one - the spalding markings look great - i have not even attempted to clean it up .....i know what the baseball back racks bring, but have never been able to locate another pool stick holder ----- i have no idea on value or other info on this bad boy - anyone seen any of these?

A similar design by Brunswick Balke-Collender would be $300-400. I have never seen a Spalding one, but billiard antique collectors are generally more practical than we are, so it wouldn't be much more if any.

Default spalding billiard rack

Hi Run Scott, this could be a billiard rack, but more likely a fishing rod rack. Spalding got back in the fishing tackle business from 1928 - 1932. Are you interested in selling it? I know its been a while since you posted this, thanks

Well that changes the equation!!...Somehow I like it better as a Fishing pole holder/point of purchase display...I must say it's hard to grasp from the photos but interesting. By the way I believe bwild22 would be the owner....Cool piece

Fishing POS display makes more sense to me as well.

carlton - you are correct...i am the owner... i bought it at a local auction here last summer ....it comes apart into many pieces as well.... it was in a long narrow box at the sale, nobody knew what it was.... i happened to stick my head in the box before it sold and i saw the spalding emblem...and right away i went crazy thinking it might be one of the old baseball bat displays...but quickly realized it wasnt but was still thrilled to get it home and see what i had and this is how it pieced together... the fishing rod idea might very well be correct - no idea why i assumed it must be for pool...

emblems and markings are great - dust and dirt came with it - i should get around to getting different pictures of it sometime haha

Could it possibly be a golf club rack? What is the height on the display?

Spalding made millions of wood shaft golf clubs. The notches at the top appear to be suitable for a golf shaft. The bottom having the piece of wood on the bottom looks like just the right size for the length of an iron blade or mid 1910-1920 wood head. The angle of the display also fits perfectly for the display of an iron/putter.

Cool Piece coming from a Golf collector.

i never even considered golf.... i might take out an old wooden club, a fishing rod and a pool stick tonight and put them all in there and try to see what works best

this is really a mystery to me

still head scratching, as i have never found another one from spalding like this one at all personally and have searched for some time
