GEORGE H. STEVENS, OF TOLEDO, OHIO.
POOL OR BlLLiARD BALL.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 666,333, dated January 22, 1901.
Application filed April 12, 1894.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE H. STEVENS, of Toledo, county of Lucas, and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Pool or Billiard Balls; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the numerals of reference marked thereon, which form part of this specification.
My invent-i on relates to pool or billiard balls, and has for its object to provide as a new article of manufacture a ball having a representation of a playing-card inlaid, stamped, carved, or otherwise placed thereon, whereby the game of pool or billiards may be rendered more susceptible to new combinations in counting the points in the game, and independent specific games may be played at the option of the players.
The invention consists in inlaying, stamping, carving, 50., or otherwise placing upon the balls the representations of playing-cards appropriate to the game being played.
In the drawings I have illustrated in Figure 1 a pool-ball having inlaid, stamped, carved, or otherwise represented thereon the representation of a playing-card. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same. Fig. 3 is a like View to Fig. 1, having a different card represented thereon.
1 designates a pool-ball which comprises a ball round in cross-section, constructed as heretofore,and upon which is inlaid, stamped, carved, or otherwise represented a representation of a playing-card 2, a set of pool or billiard balls as constructed in accordance with my invention comprising one complete suit of the cards inlaid, stamped, carved, or otherwise represented in succession upon each of the balls, the cue-ball having some distinctive mark or color.
In playing pool with balls constructed in accordance with my invention a great variety of games may be played. As many of the same combinations may be produced as are produced in playing different games of cards, thereby making the game more interesting.
In playing rotation-pool the balls compris- Serial No. 507,255. (No model.)
ing a set have the cards represented thereon and comprise a complete suit. By this arrangement any game of pool now played, as well as various new combinations, thus forming new games, may be played. By representing upon the balls the ace, king, queen, and jack of each suit the game of poker-pool may be played, many of the same combination being made as are now played in the well-known game of poker.
While I have shown the representation of a playing-card as inlaid, stamped, carved, or otherwise represented upon two sides of the ball, this being the preferred construction, as the value of the ball is apparent in any position it may lie, I may place the representation upon only one side of the ball or I may place a plurality of representations upon the ball, if desired, without departing from the spirit of my invention.
While I have shown and described a new article of manufacture comprising pool or billiard balls having inlaid, stamped, carved, or otherwise placed thereon the representation of a playing-card, it will be obvious that I may inlay, stamp, carve, or otherwise place thereon any representation appropriate to the game being played.
What I claim is 1. As a new article of manufacture, a pool or billiard ball marked with the representation of a playing-card, substantially as described.
: 2. As a new article of manufacture, a pool "or billiard ball marked upon diametrically opposite sides with the representation of a playing-card, substantially as described.
3. A series of balls adapted for play on a pool-table, said balls being so marked as to be divided thereby into groups, each group comprising a plurality of balls, all of the balls of the group bearing a common or group mark that is different from the common or group marks of the other groups, and each of the balls of a group bearing a value-mark that is different from the value-marks of all the other balls of its group, substantially as set forth.
4. A series of balls adapted for play on a pool-table, said balls being so marked as to be divided thereby into groups, each group comprising a plurality of balls, all the balls of a group bearing a common or group mark that is different from the common or group marks of the other groups, and each of the balls of a group bearing a value-m ark that is difierent from the Value-marks of all the other balls in its group but similar to the valuemark of a ball in each of the other groups, substantially as set forth.
5. A series of balls adapted for play on a pool-table, said balls being so marked as to be divided thereby into groups, each group comprising a plurality of balls, all the balls of a group bearing a common or group mark that is different from the common or group marks of the other groups, and each of the balls of a group bearing a value-mark that is different from the value-marks of all the other balls of its group but similar to the value-mark of a ball in each of the other groups, the valuemarks for the balls being the value-marks such as are used in playing cards, substantially as set forth.
6. A series of balls adapted for play on a pool'table, said balls being so marked as to be divided thereby into groups, each group comprising a plurality of balls, all the balls of a group bearing a common or group mark that is different from the common or group marks of the other groups, and each of the balls of a group bearing a value-mark that is different from the value'marks of all the other balls of its group but similar to the valuemark of a ball in each of the other groups, the value-marks for the balls being a sequence of the value-marks such as are used in playing cards, substantially as set forth.
7. A series of balls adapted for play on a pool-table, said balls being so marked as to be divided thereby into groups, each group comprising a plurality of balls, all the balls of a group bearing a common or group mark that is difierent from the common or group marks of the other groups, and each of the balls of a group bearing a value-mark that is different from the value-marks of all the other balls of its group but similar to the valuemark of a ball in each of the other groups,
the group-marks and value-marks for the balls being the suit-marks and Value-marks used in playing cards, substantially as set forth.
8. A series of balls adapted to play on a pool-table, said balls being so marked as to be divided thereby into groups, each group comprising a plurality of balls, all the balls of a group bearing a common or group mark that is different from the common or group marks of the other groups, and each of the balls of a group bearing a value-mark that is different from the value-marks of all the other balls of its group but similar to the valuemark of a ball in each of the other groups, the group-marks and value-marks for the balls being the suit-marks and a sequence of the value-marks used in playing cards, substantially as set forth.
9. A series of balls adapted for play on a pool-table, said balls being so marked as to be divided thereby into groups, each group comprising a plurality of balls, all the balls of a group bearing a common or group mark that is different from the common or group marks of the other groups, each of the balls of a'group bearing a value-mark that is different from the value-marks of all the other balls of its group, and each of the balls of the series bearing a value-mark that is diiferent from the value-marks of all the other balls, substantially as set forth.
10. A set of pool or billiard balls bearing representations of playing-cards, a card to each ball, the balls being arranged in suits and in numerical progression, to correspond with the Whole or part of a pack of playing cards.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I hereby affix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
GEORGE H. STEVENS.
