ID Old Meucci Custom Cues with Sticker


ID Old Meucci Custom Cues with Sticker

I have an old Meucci cue. I just don't know how old. I can't find anything like it, so I turn to you all.

Here are some pics of the shaft and the butt and end cap.

I sure hope you can help! It looks like the words "Meucci 20 oz" is handwritten, but I could be wrong.

    About 20 years back, Meucci put out a couple of inexpensive cues called the high run and low run. They called it the "Starter Series".

    I could not see the pics that well but it looks like the high run to me.

    So that probably means that it is not really a collectible then, right?

    I'm not sure but probably not. I'll bet however that it is worth just as much now as when it was new. I think the high run sold for about $140. I'm not positive that it is a high run. Where are you located? Are their any pro tournaments in your area? You could take it to a pro tourney or billiards expo and get a for sure answer.

    OK, I received the pool cue today, and it still is not much help having it right in my face.

    There is actually a clear sticker on the butt that says "Meucci Custom Cues" and "20 oz" in script. It also says "Made in USA" in very small print at the bottom of the sticker. The dot for the "i" at the end of "Meucci" looks to be an 8 ball.

    Anyone seen anything like this? Do you still think it is a high end, or a fake possibly?

    Not sure what it is. Is there a store in your town that sells Meucci cues?

    If there is check the logo on the new Meucci cues. I don't recall stickers or decals.

    Take some close up pics and search for a cue expert.

    I can't help identify your cue; sorry, but I might help you find the right path.

    The shop where I go to have work done is owned by a Cue collector. He has a book as large as a phone book with thousands of Cues listed. You might do a search here.

    Might also be a good idea to find someone who has one of these books. Are you a Collector or planning on becoming one?

    Not sure if you ever got this old Meucci sticker cue figured out yet, but for the others coming here...

    You have an early 1970s Huebler aka Meucci Custom Cue. The most common is the Huebler QB line and yours looks like it might be something similar from that series. Yours has had the bumper replaced, as those came originally with the small pill-style bumpers.

    Yours is either a Huebler Meucci Custom QB1 or QB2 (can't tell from the pics, but if it has "pearl appointments" its a QB2, if not, QB1.

    QB-1 - Merry widow butt, unwrapped hardwoods of Bubinga or Mozambique, white implex joint, white butt-plate, urethane bumper.

    QB-2 - Same as QB-1, with pearl appointments.

    Bob made cues out of Huebler for a while before starting Meucci Originals. Bob signed away the right to use the Meucci name early on and I believe these were cues by whoever held the rights at that time.

    I just found a few pics the other day. Will post some more later today but for now here is one...
