IMHO Any 100/200 etc.. cue is a milestone. Especially with the guys who have very low output...
However this cue sticks out in my mind because of a SBE. My friend comes in with cash and he is looking for a piece to put away. So at that time, this cue was 2500. We had a fancy floating spear ivory McDaniels, fancy , lotta ivory for 2500 also.
Against my recommendation he bought the McDaniels. He reminds me of this every time I talk to him. He couldn't get over the fanciness of the McD....
Great piece of history there, Joe. It reminds me of the 1993 cue exhibition held just outside of Baltimore. Barry was there, and he had his first cue made for sale for $1,200, and a four point Balabushka for $2,500. His first was a four point Hoppe.
Those seemed like high prices at the time. Not today though. It would be an easy call.
All the best,
