Hey guys, I am new here but not new to the pool community. At least locally in Round Rock where I shoot out of Skinny Bob's Billiards. I recently acquired this beautiful case and wanted to see if anyone may know anything about the case. I have searched all over for any identifying marks but i don't see any. The case seems to be wrapped in crocodile, it's a 1x1 and the sliding latch works perfectly. It does not have a locking function like others that i have seen. I'm going to post several pics and very excited to see all of your responses. I won't tell you quite yet what I paid for it. But it was a great deal! Thanks in advance for all of your input.

Thanks man! This is definitely the closest i've found so far! Jayman posted one just like it before here in the forums, its almost identical except for the lock.
The lock and inner lining are what define Fellini's from all other look alikes. I believe Palmer made a few back in the 70s, early 80s, if not mistaken.
Palmer also made the square box case that was so popular among players back then. Only case big enuf to hold multiple shafts and all the accessories, but looked like a rectangular Suitcase!! Lol. Similar to a Shotgun or Rifle case today. Hope that helps.
Lemme know if you're trying to sell yours. I know a few peeps might want it for nostalgia's sake.

I passed it along. So far no takers. Sorry bud.
If you can get anything near that for it, sell it fast!! I don't think the guys I deal with would go over $125. Apologies. Thanks for getting back with me.
Hope I can return the favor someday. Good luck my friend.

Would 125 plus the buyer covers shipping?
In most cases like this, shipping is on the seller.
Unless some agreement is made in advance, nobody will pay extra for shipping. $125 for that case was on the high end to begin with. I see those pop up for $75 to $100 from time to time. I said $125 simply to try to help out a fellow member. I do that a lot and should probly rethink it. Lol.
For something small like a cue case, send it UPS, not USPS.
Too many probs w loss, theft and delayed items.
Pain in the ass for everyone. Hope that helps.

One of my buddies says he thinks that might be an old Viking case.
75 to 100 bucks in that condition.

Original Scruggs w 3 shafts?? In good shape and rolls straight?? Whatever a Scruggs freak is willing to pay for it. Lol.
I wouldn't go below $2500. Probly list it for 2700 to 3k. Possibly more. Hard to tell much by those pics. You need to show inlays, butt and shafts in more detail.

Just took these guys. I will get diameters on shafts and weights soon. But yes, all original. The person I picked it up from had a photo of her husband with Tim himself with this cue she claims. Gonna try and find it and send it to me.
