North Shore Billiards, Hustlin’ Lion Poster

11″ x 17″
Origin of the Hustlin’ Lion Logo

When we were about to open the legendary North Shore Billiard Club on Chicago’s North Broadway in 1979, one of our charter members, Jack Gunne from Queens, NY., a television commercial producer, offered us a little help. He had a friend in Texas, a top cartoonist named Dave Bartel who was also a pool aficionado. Dave had previously been awarded Cartoonist of the Year a few years earlier. Jack asked him to draw up a logo for the club. So as a favor, and for a lifetime membership in the club, Dave drew up this unique lion logo. As a sidebar to the story, Dave never stepped foot into the club.

Poster comes autographed by one of the original owners, Freddy the Beard Bentivegna.
