What do you think the reserve is?
I think around $12K?


New cue-Schmelke custom Bocote merry widow
Best of the bunch- The Mighty Lucasi Cocobolo
Back up cue - Troy Downey
I woke up.
Triangles tips and Masters chalk are good enough.

Bid 12K and find out...lol

All I will say is that the reserve should shock the winning bidder. You will probably never find a cue as unique as this one at any price. This cue is exceptionally rare and historic when you add it all up. On top of that, this is an un-restored example and has the documentation.

If someone wanted to own this cue, now is the time. I seriously doubt this cue will be any cheaper to own with the passing of time. How much would you expect to get for this cue?

I talked to Greg Balabushka about this cue when he first reached out for market advice. As the story goes, he said his brother George Jr. begged their father often to build him a cue. Every chance he could but his dad wouldn't build him one. We can only speculate why. Until one day in what seemed out of no where George Sr. built this cue and gave it to Jr..... It's a very cool story and I think ads to it's desirability ....GLWS


Design is a fingerprint of the mind....
