Value of a Playmaster Renassaince Pool Table

How much is a Playmaster Renassaince pool table worth?

I don't have any information on the table, other than the pictures.

    With the market for used pool tables being what it is, it is a buyers market.

    I would advise against paying more than $800 for a residential pool table in excellent condition.

    The exception would be if used pool tables are hard to come-by in your specific geographic area.

    As with a search for anything, patience is a virtue.

    I classify this pool table into the group I refer to as "furniture-grade" pool tables.

    They are nothing special, and designed more for mass production and their furniture look rather than for it's quality as a well-built and well-playing pool table (though some of them certainly were both).

    As @Type79 mentioned - there's a mass sell-off of residential pool tables. You can often find posts on Craigslist with folks literally giving them away (or selling for next to nothing).

    I agree with the advice given above with regards to what used residential pool tables should top out at. Of course there are exceptions, but that Playmaster pool table isn't one of them.

    Some fun facts on the Playmaster company as told in 2012 by AZB member zoomer:

    Charlie Bailey, the Playmaster founder, was an attorney in back in the 1960s, and ran Fischer pool tables for many years after handling the sale of the business (for the Fischer family) to Spaulding.

    He started Playmaster in the 1970s. AMF Bowling then bought Playmaster in the early 1990s, then AMF Bowling later sold AMF Billiards to an investment group in 2006 (?) which then went belly up in 2007 (?).

    Charlie & Chuck Bailey (his son) started C. L. Bailey in the late 1990s, and sold it by the mid-2000's to the same group that owned the Aramith brand.

    The Bailey family and some key managers bought C.L. Bailey back a few years ago, although their pool tables are now made in China.

    Thank you so much for your reply.

    We were told they run $6,000 and thought that was way out of range.

    Thanks for your time to help us with our decision.

    That might have been the MSRP 20 years ago. Actual retail would have been about half that.

    That was (and still is) a sales strategy used by pool table companies. Jack the MSRP way up so they can give you a "huge" discount.

    That $6000 MSRP is meaningless in today's used pool table market.
