ID Old 1960s Pool Cues

I just got some old 1960s pool cues from my mom.

What brand and models are they? What are they worth?

If somebody could help, I be in your gratitude for ever...

All I know is Mom lived in The USA and got them from someone, who told her they were from the 1960s.

Kind Regards,

    I am not sure about the top cue in your picture.

    The bottom one with the white wrap is a Brunswick Professional Series "Imperial" pool cue.

    Brunswick "The Imperial" Pool cue.

    A stylish cue from the eight prong family. Solid maple construction with intricate patterns of inlaid woods. Pearlized inlays and trim rings enhance the beauty of the wood and unique design. Grip is wrapped with green and white nylon cord for comfortable control. Brass-on-brass joint offers maximum security against loosening as well as the feel of a one-piece cue. Hard leather tip on crack-resistant ferrule with protective rubber cushioned end.


    Cues from this series sell for between $150 and $500 depending on the condition. Yours appears to be in rough shape compared to others I see out there at the higher end of the price range.

    Here is a Brunswick catalog showing the 1981 version. It is item "D" in the photos:

    Yeah thanks dude. Loves your answer.

    A girlfriend hit a dude in the head with it because he grabbed her ass. Haha. He went down like a dead pig. Hahaha.

    I think the top one has Ivory from an Elephant in it.

    You can add a little more to it's value because of that great story that goes with it LOL.

    Yeah hahaha. Thanks again dude.

    How much do you want for the pool cues?

    I pay via PayPal or with cash.

    Oh, I don't know who much these old Brunswick pool cues are worth.

    Make me an offer I cant refuse.

  7. user1511091732Mark Bellamy on 12/21/2017 3:29:10 PM

    I could give you $100 for both. They will need to be completely restored which is very expensive. I recently bought a Brunswick cue in about the same condition at an auction for $7.50. And it will also need to be completely restored which costs hundreds of dollars. I would like to have a 'sister' stick to the one here.

    I am a retired disabled Navy war-time veteran. This is a hobby for me. I started played pool back in the late sixties. Played at the Bexley Rec Center at Jeffrey Mansion. It had 2 vintage Brunswick tables with the drop leather pockets. Also played at the Golden 8 Ball on Livingston Ave (Columbus, OH). That's where Howard Vickery (Color of Money) hustled. Did NOT play him for money.

    I remember these types of cues from back then. Let me know.

    Im sorry the Brunswick is woth 100 dollars, and the other one is worth much more... Rather sell em on ebay..

  9. user1511091732Mark Bellamy on 12/22/2017 4:44:49 PM

    No they are not. Good luck brother.

    Hi Owen,

    Best thing you can do is post the auction links. Either you or Mark will be wrong and the auction market will prove it out.

    Hey wait, I think I just discovered a new thing to gamble on. :)

    Happy holidays to all!

    I'll take that bet.

    The cue pictured above has chips and scratches in the butt and the bottom part of the wrap is stained and discolored (a greenish hue stain, mucilage?). As I said before it will need to be completely restored. The wrap needs to be matched and redone at the very least. The other stick above is a no-name not worth restoring.

    The same cue sold for $100 on eBay (details below). This particular cue on eBay looked to be in like-new condition and definitely in better shape than the one pictured in the original Brunswick catalog. Plus the eBay listing included a very nice hard case with the Brunswick cue.

    Condition is everything when it comes to pricing cue sticks. My offer was more than fair. Upon further reflection I believe it was quite generous.

    Did you ever figure out what the the top cue is? I have a similar pool cue.

  13. user1511091732user1511091732 on 3/27/2022 10:03:04 PM

    @user1648418155 - I am sorry to say that I did not. I am just going to hang on to the cues as a keepsake.
