Host it somewhere on a website and link to it using an [img] BB code. Let me know if you need help.

I know none of us can begin to compare with Bill's 800+ collection, but I thought I'd post something close. We just finished an interview with him about the cups.

Anyone who wants to listen to it is more than welcome. Come to think of it, feel free to listen to the show while browsing the beautiful collections posted in this thread!

Thanks again, Bill, for your time and sharing your insights. Thanks also, to everyone who is posting there personal collections. They are beautiful!

HOw does one load a photo?

You reveal a ball under one of the cups and use the misdirection to load the photo. Smile

I appreciate the opportunity to discuss the cups and balls as well as collecting cups in a podcast. I hope I can actually meet Pepka and Scott at Magic LIVE this summer.

I had a chance to look at the article that will be in the August issue of MUM. Dick Hatch did a really great job of representing me and the collection. Most of the photos were done by John Star, who recently moved to Houston from London.

For those of you who have not read the mission statement in the cups and balls museum, I urge you to do so. It will explain a lot about the museum and why I collect cups.

This whole discussion reminds me of a time when my now ex-wife was planning a party for the kids. Well she was bi...er griping about the cost of treats. Well when she said "do you know that they are charging 25 cents each for nut cups!"

That's when I told her "you might get then for free, call the school athletic department."

That woman had no sense of humour.

I forgot to add the picture in my last post! It isn't much, but here are a few cups on my shelf. My favorites are the front: (from left) Miller, Sisti, Sherwood. (The Sherwood and Sisti cups are normally in my closeup case, not on the shelf.)

Paddy:

Some people just have no sense of humor. Have you ever priced a set of sterling silver, engraved nut cups? I think Bike may be making them soon. Smile

Fortasse:

Thanks for your kind words.


Bill Wells:

Thanks for visiting and listening. BTW, I remember seeing you perform at the IBM convention in Little Rock during the 1970's.

Here's my small accumulation - too random and directionless to be called a collection.

Totally driven by what appeals to me or that I find cheap! (The silver plated PF cups came from Danny Dew when the earth was still warm and I was young = $25 I believe - sigh!)

I tried to send pictures of my chop cup stuff and wands, but I'm apparently not catching on to the BB code.

I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I only lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three. Elayne Boosler

I hope this works. The photo isn't that clear - maybe I could do with some lessons from Pete. Anyway, here's part of the collection...

and a slightly different view here

There are a few sets missing, and the photo doesn't include my Chop cups, but there are some interesting sets there for you to spot.

Wow! Richard, you really have a lot of cups there and this does not even include the Chop cups.

Thanks both.

I've just noticed that one Chop cup snuck in there - it's that massive van Dokkum Chicken Chop cup on the far left.

Seeing all of these beautiful cups reminds of something an old coin dealer told me years ago - "the oportunity to buy a coin is frequently rarer than the coin". (Why didn't I remember that when the smooth silver Sherwoods were available?)

Assuming Dave V's advise works (thanks, Dave), here's my chop cups:

and here are the wands I can't spin (except the Mercury, which I can't find):
