Identify an Old Mali Cue


Identify an Old Mali Cue

I have this old Mali pool cue and was wondering what year it could be from and how much it might be worth?

I got the cue in 1990 and it was already kind of old.

    That is a Mali cue from the 1970's, I would think 73-75 era. The green logo identifies it as a 1970's cue.

    Based on the condition I see in the pictures, I would rate the cue's condition as poor (but maybe they are just bad pictures). In good condition it is desirable because of the ebony butt and points.

    It has 4 ebony points at 1/4 inch apart with veneers. The railroad tracking on the base and collar joints seem to be in good condition.

    I saw an almost identical Mali cue go for $172 USD about a week and a half ago. However, that cue had been reconditioned to "like new" before being placed up for bid. It was immaculate and even then it brought less than $200. In the current condition yours appears to be in, you may get $75 to $100. Maybe.

    I just bought a Mali cue from my local pool hall and I'm trying to identify it. I believe the cue in this thread is the exact Mali cue I have. It's got green points, a green linen wrap and a rosewood butt.

    Earlier responses said it's ebony but I'm pretty sure it's rosewood or something. The owner said it was about 20 years old but you say its from around 1975 and the green logo indicates a cue from the 70s?

    I can't tell from the pictures but it looks like the cue has the same green points that mine has. I don't know if either of you have any extra information.

    As for how the cue plays: I love this cue and in my mind it's priceless. I spent $150 on this cue and I think it was worth every penny. It plays great and has that traditional feel that my Poison Cue doesn't have. I would honestly have to be offered over $1000 for this cue to part with it, especially if you're saying it's around 40 years old.

    If you still have yours, I'd advise you to hold on to it. There's just something about it.

    This Mali cue is definitely from the 1970's era as the previous poster noted. The green Mali label is a clear indicator.

    As long as the cue is straight and not too beat up, this cue is worth $150 all day long. It good shape you should get $175-$225 from the right buyer. I've had two of these, which I bought for around $125-$150 each. I sold them for $150 each and I really wish I would've kept one of them. They do hit good.

    It looks a little like a Mali Trophy Series T-11, but it's impossible to tell from the photos. It is from the early to mid-1980's.

    Here is a Mali Trophy Series brochure just to give you an idea of the series, but your cue isn't in this photo.
