Everything from CD's to a 529 and even some stuff too embarrassing to list, but nothing, and I mean nothing, has given me the return that the couple of grande spent on my Mobley has given. It's the investment that just keeps giving.

So you bought the cue directly from Randy, and then flipped it due to supply/demand. That is specifically the one caveat I listed. The next person will not fair so well.

No, I bought it direct from Randy and will die with it. The returns Iím speaking of is the joy it brings me every time I get to play some one pocket. I could easily double or triple my money selling it but what would be the point of that? I have a JW in the closet just in case something ever happens to my Mobley. I canít imagine selling that one either.

The only way Iíve ever made any money buying/selling cues is when someone goes bust and sells me their cue. Usually itís just a cheap cue and a quick flip. But itís been a long time since I was hanging out at the pool room enough to have that happen.

Very very few makers you can buy a cue from at retail and "easily" double or triple your money....

It wasn't meant to be a complete history of start ups or in any way a suggestion that you didn't make a nice cue purchase. It was just a little fun fact about Apple after I made the very point about buying what you like that you just tossed at me.

Some of the best cue appreciation times were buying custom cues such as Scruggs, Richard Black, Joss West in the mid 1990s and selling them in the 2005-06 timeframe - that ten year appreciation period on some custom cue makers will be hard to repeat again.

Any other cues you notice doing the same thing?
Thanks for your input.
