Trying to determine if a Willie Mosconi signed Sneaky Pete with pre-cert of COA is worth anything. I have tried to find more signed Mosconi cues but it seems he signed a million balls but not many cues. Any of you AZ'ers have any input? You think this is worth more or less than $250, I will be updating this on Sunday with a count. Anyone who answers with a legit opinion will be entered into a pool to win a free box of Magic Chalk, now is your chance to try it and not have to buy it, to be shipped via USPS on 8/19. Your opinion is appreciated. Thx

His Signature Is Valuable - 08-13-2013, 10:06 AM

Don't sell it for <$250........the cue is worth a lot, lot more than a signed cue ball or object ball. You could also play with the cue and not worry about the signature being ruined.

Heck, I'd put the cue on display in a case if I owned a pool hall and collectors might feel the same way. If you're not hard pressed for money, I'd hang onto it.

I'd buy it in a heart beat, with provenance.
$250 seems like a bargain.

I would think any cue with a Mosconi sig would far exceed 250$
If its the real deal you better grab it or someone else will
Who did you say had the cue?

How much would the sneaky be worth if it didn't have a sig? (not all sneakies cost the same, details might help)

So far three in the running for the free Magic Chalk, that is pretty good odds, what a small price to pay for the opinion of some real players and pool lovers. Thx guys, ShooterO8

I think that's the difference maker here. You can get a roundabout of what his signature is gonna be worth,but the type of sneaky it's on is gonna make an impact on the price,regardless.

^^^^^
What he said...

If his sig was on a Tim Scruggs sneaky it might boost the value up around 1K. If it's a Dufferin house cue/turned sneaky, maybe you could get $250 just for the sig?

I highly doubt Mosconi's signature is worth that much to autograph collectors/dealers. I may have a price in my autograph books but they are packed anticipating a move to a new house soon as we close. You might get that price from a pool player but he could probably get the sig for less from a professional autograph dealer.

I agree with Pushout. I don't think Mosconi's autograph would bring even $250...especially on a plain cue that wasn't even his. I have his autograph on three of his books. If his autograph brings that kinda dough they are ALL for sale! LOL

Depends on the type of cue and condition of the cue, depends on the clarity/condition of the signature, depends on the reputation of the company that issued the COA.

If it is just a no name, good condition SP, with a pretty decent signature, and a good COA, yeah, I'd sat it's wortha few hundo. He signed many things, balls, books, etc, but not many cues, and that makes it a little cooler in my book...

I'd say the best way to find out is to post a picture, with the COA, and put in the For Sale section with a BEST OFFER, and that will tell you exactly what it is worth, what somebody is willing to pay. I'd love to have something like that....

Mosconi signed lots and lots of pool balls and lots of other stuff, but not that many cues. The cue is not a valuable cue (as far as I know), so the only value is the signature on a somewhat rare item. The balls sell for around $50-100, usually with provenance. I'd say $2-300 would be about right. If the provenance showed he used this cue to win a big championship, or it turns out the maker of the cue was Gus Szamboti, well....

Estimate value assuming that the cue is nothing more than an old SP of inconsequential value by itself. I have seen books and balls signed, but who would hang them on a wall? It seems to me a cue would be more unique and appealing in addition I have not seen any others w/ provenance. I'm pretty sure we can all go order signed balls from Ebay, there seems to be plenty to go around. Thx
