Help Identify and Assess a Palmer Pool Cue

Help Identify and Assess a Palmer Pool Cue

Just as it states in the title, I'm asking for help in identifying and assessing the value of this Palmer pool cue.

I recently found it in an estate sale. It's in superb condition, lovingly preserved in a (non-Palmer) soft case with all sorts of accessories.

I fully admit I'm no more than a casual occasional pool and billiards guy, just for fun with friends, so I'm no better than a newbie in terms of better quality gear. Antiques and vintage cameras are my thing, I buy and sell and collect, and this was an unexpected extra bonus among the load of photographic stuff I recently bought.

If it has significant value, I'll eventually sell it, as it's wasted on an amateur like me, but I need to know what I have and what it's reasonably worth before I pass it along. If it turns out to be low value or some sort of cheaper knock off, I may keep it anyway.

Many thanks for your time consideration.

    I don't know the exact model number of this "Palmer" cue as I don't have the catalog from this particular line.

    These were made in Taiwan in the 1990s and early 2000s.

    I used quotes around the Palmer name above because this "Palmer" brand is not related in any way to the sought-after Palmer Custom Cues from the now-defunct Palmer Custom Cue Co. of Elizabeth, NJ.

    It's an imported cue with the Palmer name on it from after the original U.S. Palmer cue company closed.

    They've used a number of different logos, but are generally all from the same overseas manufacturer. They generally have no collectible value and would only be worth their utility value - somewhere under $100.

    There are many other questions (and answers) about these imported Palmer cues on this site. Here are a few:

    There are lots more. The search box will find them easily for you.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Just my luck. It's a "keeper" for me then, not worth the time and effort to sell.

    I'll take it with me when I go play pool with my buddies, make a big fuss of taking it out of the case and screwing it together, and they can all go, "Ooooohh!" Most likely I'll still scratch twice as often as any of them because I'm nearly blind and I have the finesse of a water buffalo, but I'll look good doing it. So it goes...
