I didn't mean to come off in the way I did in the earlier post. I have so many posts to go through and respond to every day, sometimes I just quickly rattle off an answer and don't stop to consider the tone, etc. This site is a side-gig for me. A hobby more than anything else.
Regarding value, my earlier answer was based on several things, but most significantly:
- It's a very recent/modern BMC model, and
- While it was only produced in limited numbers, it is also a very obscure BMC model.
As such, demand isn't high for this particular model. For $900, give or take, someone could get a brand new BMC cue of similar complexity, etc., with warranty and all. In fact, there's a good chance that if you called Budget Billiards or Meucci Cues, and asked them to make you another one of these, they would (yes, I know, it's BS, but it's a Meucci thing).
Also, some of the rarer Meucci Originals go for prices in this ballpark (and less), and would be more highly sought-after by some Meucci collectors than would a newer-model obscure BMC cue.
If you find that you have interest in your cue at a price point of $900 or higher, then that's great. I usually encourage starting high anyway, if you can afford to hold on to the cue for a while, as a way of gauging interest.
I don't have a magic 8-ball and I don't always get valuations right. But I do look at 100's of cue auctions and classifieds every single day, and probably many thousands every month, so I do have some idea of how things go.
If you are able to fetch more than $900, that's fantastic, and I would love to know about it so I can factor it in to the valuation information on this site.
