Ten Inexpensively-Nifty Ways to Accessorize Your Love of Billiards

If you’re like me, I am sure you have a diverse array of interests; which no doubt are a big part of your life. That is how interests work. We find them, we cultivate them and they become a part of WHO WE ARE. So, it is understandable that one would have the desire to accessorize their life with the things that they love.

One of the most popular interests, as we know, is billiards and people from all over the world have embraced this game (or sport) of focus and precision as their own since its early inceptions in the 15th century. In honor of this hallowed pastime, let’s take a look at some of the interesting and affordable ways a billiards fan can express their love of the game via accessorizing.

Given the snail-paced growth of the current economy, I have chosen to compile a list of some of the more interesting items available on Amazon.com that are all under $20.00 for you the conscientious billiards fan, or for the fan you know best…

1. Herywan / Billiard Pool Galaxy S3 Case

Everyone has a smartphone these days – even Grandpa! So, given the technologically obsessed nature of our society these days, it makes perfect sense that there are some really cool smartphone cases out there. If you’ve got an interest I am sure there is a smartphone case for you, regardless of niche. But for the more obscure interests, you may have to do a Google search, because not EVERYTHING is available on Amazon, but almost. Even this!

Made by herywan, this very sleek Galaxy S3 III case is durable and lightweight and features a sharp green background with the colorful “break” in progress, prominently featured. This case is surely a must-have item for any billiards fan and one that won’t break the bank.

3. Sterling / 9-Ball Money Clip

Not only is carrying around a wallet SO old fashioned and CUMBERSOME, studies have shown that using a wallet is detrimental to the alignment of your spine – not to mention uncomfortable and painful to sit on! A money clip is the WAY TO GO. Trust me, I have been using a money clip for years and I have never looked back.

This Sterling golden-colored 9-themed money clip is brass plated and made of steel by Sterling, and can hold around ten to twenty bills comfortably. This most stylish clip will be a welcomed-addition to any billiard fan’s wardrobe.

I wish I was into billiards back in those days because I could have picked up this little gem to show everyone that I’m a fan of the Eight-Ball. Very few images are more iconic than the good old Eight-Ball and the instant association it has with the game of pool is palpable. So it would be a no-brainer for the pool enthusiast to head on over to Amazon and pick this bad boy up.

10. BuXsbaum / T-Shirt Cue Sports-Pictogram

As far as novelty t-shirts go, there are SO many out there in the internet wormhole that it is an exhausting proposition trying to find one that can fit the exact niche you are looking for, while also NOT featuring a distracting design that has TOO MUCH going on. Personally, I am not a big fan of BUSY t-shirts and have always leaned towards the less is more philosophy when shopping for t-shirts. Happily when sifting through Amazon’s novelty t-shirt pages, I found this little beauty, which can accomplish the job of saying I LOVE POOL, while not being visually jarring.

This minimalistic but awesome Fruit of the Loom tee is made from 100% cotton and available in black, white, red and green (my personal favorite). Also, the white billiards design is a high quality durable print that is sure to look amazing in the mirror for a long time.
