I like knowing that I've had a lot of enjoyment from every cue I've owned with no loss in value.

There are a lot of cues that went up in value that were made pre 90's but those cues values have consistently decreased over the last 20 years. The 80's Schön cues have been one of the few cues that have ridden out the up's and downs, even making gains, over the last 20 years. They were never considered a very high dollar cue even though they were very nicely built and a great playing one. Now that they're more readily available they've kind of become the "poor mans" Szamboti imo. Also the many fans of early Schöns, me included, are a big reason they're staying desirable and for now, keeping the prics fairly steady.

That said, their values have peaked and are no longer going up imho.


Design is a fingerprint of the mind....

I sold it last fall for $4850 on e bay. In the last 5 minutes it went from
$1900 to $4850

Seems like the spread between bid and offer is huge for well know high dollar cues, so unless you buy right figure on a big bloodbath.
They may go up in price but it could take years to be able to sell at a profit. Cues are for fun,not making money.

It's like they say about art, buy quality that you like and if you are fortunate you'll enjoy it and as a bonus it can go up. On the other hand, $850 put in Apple stock in 1993 would be worth somewhere between $100,000 and $200,000 today depending on how early in the year you bought it.

And that would be a monster loser compared to buying Bitcoin in the early days.

Was bitcoin around in 1993?

But yes, I get it, there are more extreme examples. I went for a realistic one.

Rick Howard's are fixing to skyrocket, probably surpassing all but Burton, Herman, and George.
(This, of course, is my opinion)

You fail to mention the hundreds of start ups that are now worth 0.
Also, I got the use of the black boar for many years

The days of cue value appreciation are gone. Nothing made today will appreciate. My only caveat is if one receives a cue directly from a tier one maker, and then flips it due to supply/demand. A cue bought second-hand in today's market is worth what one pays, or below. You'd have to luck into one hell of a steal to make a profit.

Lambros, probably best hitting cues ever made.

Once this guy retires his cues prices will skyrocket.

I agree with Buster8001. A good mutual fund is MUCH better. Get any cue you like, buy it for fun, not making money.
