The Q u have with the name Mike Massey is the same as the model 80-2 and 84-2 as seen in the links below. The model was started in the late 70s and ran thru the 80s. Yours has the older style rubber bumper indicating it is from the late 70s. Depending upon condition, it's value would run from a lo of 250 to a hi of 375+-. Back then, I'm told that more pros shot with Meucci cues than all other cues put together. I do know that Mike Massey used Meucci cues then. If u are thinking that this was Mike's personal Q, I doubt it. Many were made. Are there any specific questions?
The most rare and famous of the "signature" cues is probably the Earl Strickland "Frog" cue. Very unique and rare. I am fortunate to have one in my collection and hope to someday get Earl to autograph it.
This is exactly the kind of info I was looking for.
Thank you ever so much.
As for the other poster's asking if I have a specific question the answer is NO!
I wasn't even sure what questions to ask to get the above info, as lease you have the intelligence to respond with the exact answers anyway. My friend is NOT looking to sell the cue, he merely wants to know and understand what a jewel he has and be able to confidently bragg about those qualities and attributes.
My friend and I truly appreciate your knowledge and you willingness to share it.
Maybe someday I will be able to do as even close to as much for someone else.
