About the only thing I could find of significance is that they are made by BCE Billiard Cues of England. Nothing pertaining to value at all.

Interesting cue though.

Good luck with it.

If winning is so easy why aren't the losers doing it?

Some people think these cues are valuable, but it depends on how much someone wants one. I have seen plainer model ones that the person wanted $700 for which I thought was way out of line. Yours looks like it was probably the top model with all the design. If it is straight and in good condition I would say maybe $300 tops. That's my opinion.

This is a C&P I found from a credible source:



"Biagio was a 'house brand' offered by Crystal Leisure<Colorado >,
a billiard product distributor
the 'Biago' cues were originally made by Adam Cues<owned by Dick
Helmstetter >
the production was later switched to Danny James of Joss East - I am
not aware of 'Joss' appearing on the Biagio cues, but it could have"

I know this info. is late, but better than never??? I found the information while researching a "Biagio" for a friend/cue collector friend of mine. The pictures you posted match the description that he provided exactly, seems to be the same model he just obtained??? Very nice looking cue in my opinion.

Sincerely,
Sledge

Obviously you don't know about the "Biagio" cue. You may think $700 is way out of line
but actually in great condition is probably worth more. $300 tops for one in good condition...Pleeease. Before you comment on something you ought to know what your talking about.

I know the cues pretty well.

$700 is out of line for any of them.


There were at least three manufacturers involved. The best Biagio cues ever made were made by JOSS, and none of them would break into the $700 range unless you found a really "uneducated" buyer that didn't know he could find one for substantially less than that.

Of course...one could always simply pay too much if one wished....

Enlighten us. I have seen them on E-bay for years, They really don't sell for a whole lot. So how much are you willing to pay for this one?

It wasn't a bad shooting cue, you just couldn't get much action from it. The guy I sold it to over 15 years ago still has it, I might get it back someday for sentimental reasons.

Do you know if yours was JOSS or Asian made?

I would love to have a good example of each in my collection eventually.

I never really knew and at the time I didn't know enough to ask. For some reason I always thought it was an English company. lol

The 'Biagio' cues were made in Japan and in USA, one by Adams-Helmstetter company and the other by JOSS (East) Janes family.

Values, who knows, when they sold new they ranged from $200 to $800, but re-sale, to each his own, only as valueable as someone is willing to pay.

Hope this helps a bit,

All of the cues were of good quality, but were, production level cues, not CUSTOM

Actually, there was a third maker and they were in Taiwan.

And there is no such thing as JOSS East. There is no Joss West either. There is Joss and there was Josswest.
