Well, believe it or not (I can hardly believe my own good fortune!), one very kind Café' member was extraordinarily generous He allowed me to obtain from him, exactly what I needed: 2 and 1/8" white Fakini billiard balls and shells in brand new condition!!

This never would have happened without the Café' and the many wonderful people who share both their knowledge, friendship, and in some special cases... their own personal stash of magical rarities.

Roy Benson's set got smaller as you went towards the little finger. Not enough to notice. Walter Cummings used what seemed large spheres. I think they were 2". I personally doubt you'll find 2 1/8". Ricky Jay always thought you had to use real pool balls. Of course he was wrong. Cardini used large ones. He was actually pretending to be coming home from a gentleman's club where they would have had Billiards. How big is a real pool ball? 2 1/2"? Anyway, good luck. Maybe Fakini will do a custom order for a lot of bucks.

Gregg-

Thanks for your insights and I always enjoy your posts!
Fortunately, I DID obtain those 2 and 1/8" balls as my post indicates.
Cardini used 2 and 1/8" as reported in several books.
Standard pool balls a re 2 and 1/4"
in the Russian Pyramid game ,the cue ball is 2 and 11/16"!!
Fakini is for all intents and purposes out of business with the passing for Frank Radtke.
