Question
My Fiance purchased a Sportcract pool cue many years ago. we are looking to sell it. However,both of us are unfamiliar with the value of a cue. I can tell you it is in a Halex case. It is in fair condition. Code on sticker says 210Z.

I tried reseaching through eBay, craigslist and even the manufacturer. I am unable to find anything similar in design. We are trying to figure out what the value may be, especially since through my research cues can range from $20-$500.

I am sure I haven't given you enough information but i don't know where to find more information to give you, other then colors, which I doubt to be helpful.

I am writing from the US would appreciate any information you could offer or direct me to where I may go to find what we are looking for.
Thank you so much in advance!!

Answer
Hi Ashley:

Yes, cues can range vastly, and not $20 to $500, more like try $20 to over $100,000. In fact, the Thomas Wayne's "Celtic Prince" cue, shown here http://img458.imageshack.us/img458/174/2034celticprinceuq3.jpg sold in the 1990s for over $100,000. But Sportcraft makes bargain basement cues. At the high end, it's worth $30.

Best of luck,

Expertise

I have wide ranging knowledge of all the cue sports, with the exception of snooker. I can answer most questions related to playing any of the standard games such as straight pool (14.1 continuous) eight-ball, nine-ball, one-pocket and 3-cushion billiards and the variations on these games. Questions welcomed regarding technique, strategy and rules, history of the sport, trick shots, the mental game, practice, practice drills, pool/billiards publications, and so on. I DO NOT DO CUE OR TABLE APPRAISALS OR IDENTIFICATION. See below.

Experience

I have been a dedicated player of pool and 3-cushion Billiards for many years. I have given lessons professionally and have run and participated in too many tournaments to name, including professional events such as the U.S. Open. I am also a cue collector and student of all aspects of the game. Note: I was starting to get far too many questions about pool cue (and pool table) valuation and identification and will no longer take these questions, sorry. I am a player and historian of the sport and the heart of my expertise is not product comparison or appraisal.
