I posted a picture a while ago of one of his cues I have. Last I heard ('94-'95) he was in FLA somewhere. Couldn't get any info on either. Also heard somebody in Toledo bought him out around that same time. I knew a guy that had Joe make him a cue around '94. Plain BEM front and back...linen wrap. Played with it at the Ship n Shore off front street all the time.
Used to be a pool hall in the old north end that had a sign hanging out front that had Joe's name on it. Said something like "Custom cues by Joe Thomas" on the bottom. Doubt if it is still there.......this was back in the early 90's and was looking pretty rough then.
Thats about what I know............
Put some pixs up.......
