Buddy Hall Cue on Ebay - 10-06-2019, 09:46 AM

https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-ENG...Condition=3000


Ends tomorrow.

Looks a bit fishy, but who knows.

Does the packaging look old enough to be Buddy's cue?

It definitely looks right, cool piece here


Make sure you check your references before you buy on this site. Even a mod here engages in bad business!

that looks good to me
it was a buddy hall model way back then

i heard buddy actually played one for a time

the box adds credibility to it as well

the case and large number of shafts add to the likelihood
of it being buddy's player for a while

if it belonged to buddy $1600 or so seems reasonable,case ,shafts etc

if not $500 seems generous

25 years ago maybe 30.Meucci cues were a little better than they are today

i bought cues like this by the dozen for a while until the quality cgot worse

Guy says he's a storage locker buyer and has 400 pieces of crap for sale to prove it.

Can anybody confirm his address at the time?


Update: plenty online to support Buddy living in Seffner, Fl.

So the cue of arguably the best 9 ball player ever is for sale on Ebay!

It already bid up to $1800 since these posts.

Same cue for sale here years ago.
The birdseye maple forearm in this cue matches the eBay cue.
It's the real deal.
Wonder where Buddy's LOA is?

Yes it's real and I still have a couple of the same boxes here.

Just can't believe some of the prices on Ebay lately for Meucci cues.




People have too much money to spend or they just don't know the values of cues.

Good for me though since I'll be selling some.

Be a little careful, I can't speak on the butt as it looks legit to me, but two of the shafts actually have different ring work than the other two. And, none of them actually match the ring work on the butt.

If you count the colored veneers you will see they are not all the same. Two have 4 veneers, and two have more 5 or 6. Colors don't match well either, but that could just be age,finish, or even sweat from hands on joint rings.

Nice cue either way.

Its a Rifleman series cue. Model BH-3. Not all that rare. $1800 is waaaaaaaay out of line.

Sefner is where he lived. He was house pro at a place called Planet 9ball down there. Played a lot at Baker's also.

Don't believe Buddy ever used a cue with a finish over the linen wrap. If there is a video of him using one, I'd like to see it.

All the best,
WW

Buddy used to be sponsored by Meucci for years and years. Part of his sponsorship was instead of cash Bob would send him cues to sell... I'm guessing he has probably played with and then sold over 100 different ones...
