Brunswick Challenger Cue


Brunswick Challenger Cue

Anyone have any information on my one-piece Brunswick-Balke Collender house cue?

I think it might be from the 1920s or 1930s. It's a 19 OZ Brunswick Balke Collender Challenger cue.

The decal reads:

Brunswick-Balke Collender Company

Also inscribed just above the decal are the letters "BT". I am guessing that is the owner's initials.

    Steve Saylor out of Lansdale PA completely restored both of my old Brunswick Deluxe series cues.

    If you don't mind, post some pics of your 1920-1930 Brunswick Challenger cue. I wouldn't mind seeing them.

    The cue on the left is probably from the late 1950s, based on the butt cap style. I actually see this style of bumper and decal in Brunswick catalogs up through 1963.

    Here it is in the 1958 Brunswick catalog:

    The cue on the right has a bumper that is more similar to those found in the 1940s, but I don't see a decal on that one, so I can't identify/date it.
