Someone wants to sell this cue for $1500 Approx. 30 years old. Anyone know if his price is anywhere near where it should be? I checked the blue books and couldn't find it. ive included a picture of it.

I have not been on this website that long but I have never seen a Meucci go for that much online, or in real life.

I wouldn't pay more than $350 for any meucci, past or present. But that's just my opinion.

It would have to be in PERFECT condition with at least two shafts, then it might be worth $700 at the very most.

IMO of course

I bought that exact same cue either in 89-90 for I think around $400 brand new. There isn't anything special about them. Standard production cue. Way over priced. Imp

When I was a kid a friend of mine's father had one similar to that with the cards, but it had a steel joint. I want to say it was a Meucci 1 or Meucci 10 but I might be wrong. It would have to be around 40+ years old now. Would that cue be worth anything these days?

I had one also and it's just plastic inlays and over the years even know it was never used except for the first couple when I bought it, the difference in color really changed. I got rid of mine in about early 2000's and got $400 with 2 shafts. And it was an original, my friend has on now and is his player and looks the same with different color tones in all the white plastic...I never seen one go for $1500. << ED

the originals tend to be higher priced than non-original, mostly due to people have the opinion that their quality is superior. the gambler series seems to be almost revered it seems by those that have them or want one.

i bought a gambler 3 years ago for 200.00. every time i took it out of the case and started shooting i would have at least one person offer to buy it. one guy was pretty persistent abiut wanting it. every time he saw me he would ask to buy it. after a year i finally traded it to him even for a brand new predator black 4 he had just bought.

i know 4 peole in my town that have gamblers and every one of them have turned down offers as high as 1,000.00 for them. they all say they will never part with their gamblers but any other cue they own they will sell if the price is right.

btw i saw one on nashville craigs list last month for 250.00. dont know if its still on there, oh and its not an original if thats what you are prefering.

Where is that cue for sale? I just had that cue stolen from durham NC.

And as a meucci collector, 800 is fair price in exemplary condition.

Original Meucci Gamblers, while certainly very desirable in great condition, are extremely unlikely to fetch $1500.00.

Realistically, I could see a very motivated buyer paying in the neighborhood of $600 - $800 tops for one in truly excellent condition with 2 shafts.

Best,

I used to play on a league team with a guy who would buy any Meucci Gambler cue he could. He used to brag all the time about his collection and expected me to be just as excited as he was about Meucci Gambler cues. I didn't have the heart to tell him I wouldn't trade my Bluegrass for 22 or so of his Gamblers, lol.

the only real difference in the original gamblers and the newer gambler are that the original had a 100% ebony forearm.. where the newer ones have some sort of sh*t wood with a black plastic covering on it.. the originals always played better then the newer ones for that reason..

and it is a true fact that they used much better wood in all the meucci original cues then they did during the 90s and later...

it seems the originals gave Bob Meucci the large following so he made some decent cues in the early 90's , he was so big then he could have sold anything and then after that he started to produce pure garbage and ruined his reputation...

moral of the story is.. dont go mass production...
