A few miscellaneous notes on BMC Casino-8 cues:
According to Cue & Barrel, the numbers were around the high teens or early twenties by August 2017.
Not all BMC Casino 8 Spades cues are numbered. Some are signed and numbered, some are signed and dated (no number), and some are just signed (no date or number). This is typical of Meucci.
Some folks have been calling this model the BMC Casino 8 "Yellowjacket" cue, no doubt in part due to it's yellow and black colors. This nick name seems to have originated from Cue and Barrel (a BMC dealer) who started calling it the "Yellowjacket" on their first eBay ads selling cue #02, and continued using this name through future sales of serials #04, #05, and #12, among others.
