Not much (if any) would be my guess, unless you happen to find somebody with more money than sense.

Imagine if Bingham wins it would be something he would like to have in his snooker room at home assuming he has one.

Indeed, and I wouldn't be surprised if he could easily arrange it.  When I was involved in the game buying the match table was quite a common occurrence, they didn't go for fortunes by any means and you just needed to know the right people.

Snooker doesn't have a big memorabilia market like other sports as the players just have a cue and one can last them a whole career. But if you were the one off winner of the world championship I could think of nothing you would like more as a keepsake than the table. Imagine it would be quite motivating to practise on too.

Stephen Lee famously put his cue on eBay and the bids reached over £1500.  Some sort of legal case ensued, though, if I remember correctly.

There was someone on this week who have either the 85 table or the 85 balls used in the final wasn't there? can't remember who it was.

Was Stephen Lee caught trying to sell a cue he had just bought and passing it off as his match cue?
Report Pokermonster May 4, 2015 7:56 PM BST
I'm not sure, Paddletoe, the exact details of the case have escaped me.
Report paddletoe May 4, 2015 8:00 PM BST
I just assumed that was the case.

Did he sell the case separately then?

Bingham claims he `has his hands on the table used in the final`, he also wants the balls and the referees gloves. He wants to move to a new house with a room dedicated to the table. Who can blame him.

As someone who has played plenty of snooker on match tables, as soon as i walked into the Crucible theatre i was instantly taken away by the table. `it`s like the ferrari of snooker tables` i said at the time. Bingham may have some wealthy competition for  the table, but i hope they back down and let him buy it.

I would be very confident he will get the match table and the balls used on it. It would be wrong for anyone to bid against him if it was going to be sold to the highest bidder because it will always be worth more to him than anyone else.

he wont have to buy it surely? wont they just give him it, whats one table
Report Angel Gabrial May 7, 2015 2:22 PM BST
If they give it to him, then every winner of a tournament will want one. There will be a price, it`s memorabilia, a collectors item.

He will probably drop a few quid to a good cause in lieu of any payment. What one off winner would not want the final table in their snooker room.
If I won the lottery I would buy a vintage table but get a modern top put on it. An old snooker table is a lovely piece of furniture.

I was actually in a mens clothes shop recently and instead of decorating the store in the kind of retro stuff you sometimes see they had a full sized antique snooker table in the middle of the store. It looked class.

Snooker/billiard tables are certainly aesthetically pleasing paddy.

probably a good investment, could be worth 10 X that in 20 years.
Report Angel Gabrial May 15, 2015 10:43 PM BST
The table price is close to the manufacturers price so he paid no more for that.
But he had to go through auction for the balls.
Report Pokermonster May 15, 2015 10:45 PM BST
I beg to differ, App.  I'm unsure regards the retail cost of the table as I've been out the game for many years, but as a ball collector I know Stuart has paid well over the odds for the match set.  Everything will depreciate in my view, only having sentimental value to Bingham for what they represent.  Good luck to him, though, it was a marvellous victory so can't begrudge the chap for wanting every possible souvenir.

Hi PM, i thought that if the table had gone to auction it would have gone for a lot more and it seems so as the balls went for about 4 times the price.
They are beautiful looking tables and Stuart will be in heaven in practice with the generous bags.
