Identify Old Karl Meyer Pool Cue

Identify Old Karl Meyer Pool Cue

I purchased this new back in the late 1980's at a local pool hall I frequented. At the time I was told by the manager that it was a Palmer Cue. I remember paying a nice sum for it back in the day. It has been stored for almost 30 years and I wanted to try to get any additional information about it that I can

Can anyone help to identify it?

    What you have there is a Karl Mayer cue IMHO. Better pics would help. But I am about 95% sure.


    Maker of pool cues in North Plainfield, New Jersey until 2003.

    Karl Meyer made Merry Widow-type cues, either plain or with inlays of dots and diamonds, in North Plainfield, New Jersey for many years. Karl and his wife traveled around the East Coast selling them to pool rooms, and Mrs. Meyer handled the cue sales. The cues retailed for $60-80 apiece. Karl is believed to have worked for Frank Paradise or Palmer at one time. He passed on in 2003.

    Thanks for the information. I am adding a few more pictures if it helps to confirm your initial thoughts.

    Yes, it's a Karl Meyer cue.

    Looks like you kept it in nice shape too.
