ID McDermott Cue with Many Professional Player Signatures

I have this McDermott pool cue which has many signatures of professional pool players.

I am trying to find information on this Mcdermott cue stick and maybe it's value.

    Thanks for the photos... cool piece of cue sports memorabilia.

    1. What can you tell us about the cue that might help us in providing a valuation?
    2. Can you list out all of the names/signatures? And anything else written on the cue?

    One of them looks like Ewa Mataya Laurance, but can't make out the rest.

    Value of this cue will be highly dependent upon knowing the event the cue is from, and whose signatures are on it.

    The event for my Cue was in Valley Forge PA 1996 With Allen Hopkins.

    When Loyd Schonter, FOUNDER and CEO of TAP, LLC came up with the concept of a dream team event, it was a concept original and of its own in the billiard industry. Loyd and Allen Hopkins decided in 1996 to partner up and in conjunction TAP would hold their own event, during Allen’s Super Billiards Expo. Hence, a perfect time to release the TAP Rally in the Valley event/concept.

    That is great info! Thanks for sharing it.

    How did you end up tracking it down?

    I found who bought it at Valley Forge Pool Event.

    I am willing to sell it, but I don't want to be ripped off. That why I am trying to find it's value.
