Rather than post this in Ever so Sleightly, I feel it is more appropriate here.

I have recently acquired cups that belonged to Gazzo. They are in the cups and balls museum, in the Jumbo cups section. Go to http://www.cupsandballsmuseum.com and head over to the jumbo cups page that is best for your connection.

Oh yes, I do think I was told about those cups! I do believe those are cups that he sold to a guy along with his vest and a table some years ago.... the guy was a collector, I think in Europe.

That is a nice addition to have in the museum Bill.

Thanks, Jim. Those are the very same cups. He sold his table and his pouch along with the cups. The fellow was in England.

Gazzo verified the cups last night.

Very interesting, Bill. I wonder if it was one of these cups that wound up at the bottom of a lake as described in Gazzo's book. Apparently you don't want to tick off the wrong person. Fortunately, a friend was able to retrieve it.

Thanks for sharing, Bill.

I believe that what happened was someone got ticked off and threw it out into the ocean. Then a diver rescued it. These cups have got HISTORY!!!!
