If someone bought this and opened a museum ( I don’t think they want to found one)
How far would you travel to see it?

Jim <——— not buying it

Maybe drive about an hour if I had nothing else going on that day. Think I would rather just go to the poolhall.

This is the type of thing that I think NO ONE would go out of their way to travel to or see. If it was located next to a pool hall where they held some big tourneys, yeah. They'd get some traffic. If it was located near VF, they'd get a TON of traffic... for maybe 4 or 5 days out of the year.

Apart from that, this is the kind of thing that's pretty incredible... for a website. But I think maybe 9 out of 10 people would be like "Yeah. I'd rather PLAY than travel 1/2/3/4/5 hours to go look at pool stuff." (unless they're high AF)

The last two or three lines of his speech are interesting, but misguided. This collection would be AWESOME to the pool CUE and memorabilia buff. But it's not going to breed champions. Most of those buffs are already past what might be considered a pool player's prime. And most of the younger crowd could give a rat's ass about the game's history.
