Inherited a bunch of old cues - 06-30-2014, 03:48 PM

I just joined this weekend, and I am in high hopes that some of you will be able to help me identify some older cues that I have inherited from my father-in-law. I have been shooting pool for about 25 years, and I am pretty well versed in the bigger name cue brands like McDermott, Meucci, Players, etc. But in this collection, I have found some brands that I had no idea about (John Guffey is one, and my father-in-law has a handwritten letter with the stick from John Guffey himself!), and there are some with no markings that I hope some of you can help me identify. I'm sure some are junk, but I'm also sure that some are great sticks. I'm going to post a few pictures today, and as I get thru more of them and come to the ones I have questions about, I will post them individually. 67 cues in all... Here they are.

Sorry to hear about your family's loss. To positively identify every cue in your possession, it may be worthwhile to invest in a copy or subscription of the Blue Book of Pool Cue Values.

What catches my eye in your line-up:

-Guffey
-Huebler
-Parrot snooker cue
-Wood pin cue
-Cue between two Adams that has a light signature on the curly maple buttsleeve

I'm sure I've missed one or two cues hiding in the bunch. you mostly have some neat older Vikings and Adams. You have a nice collection there. Those adams and vikings are underrated players that are cheap, but tend to be built pretty decent. This forum, google, bluebook: these are all your friends!

Best of luck.

Some Older Players - 06-30-2014, 04:57 PM

Condolences to you, your wife and all the family.
I do see some great late 70's players for sure and some others that may definitely be recognizable in the blue book series as suggested by CH. Check out The Palmer Collector, http://www.palmercollector.com/Index.html, specifically the PB Line of cues he has so generously catalogued for all Palmer fan's!

Good luck!

Third one from the left in the second picture. Is that a Palmer or another Viking? I can't tell.

I don't have one with a checkered design on the butt. I will be posting more pics as I get time. Thanks to everyone for the well wishes.

Are you talking about the rainbow butt or the one with the orange design on it? I'm not sure on the rainbow one, but the orange design is a Players Edge.

Galipeau, that signed cue is a Ray Schuler. I also have this one. Ring any bells with anyone?

I'm talking about the rainbow one. It has the trademark Palmer glittery stuff but Viking uses that as well so I'm curious.

I have a question; in the first picture; starting from the closest cue, Can anyone identify cues 3 & 5? The two with the colorful veneers.


The best cue; is the one that's with you.

4x8 JB Cases - Rugged Navy Blue
Mcdermott G218 - I-2 Shaft - Kamui Soft Tip
Mcdermott Sledgehammer - Maple Shaft - Phenolic Tip
