Signed Abe Rich Cue from 2005


Signed Abe Rich Cue from 2005

I don't recall the exact year I purchased my Abe Rich cue. It was likely 1995 or 1996. I love that it has no logo, just Abe's signature and the production date. The wood is Bubinga. If I recall correctly, it weighs 19 oz.

I live in Miami Beach, FL, so going to his shop was no problem.

I don't play pool anymore, so the cue just stays in its case. It may be collectible some day.

A couple shots of my Abe Rich cue:

    The fact that the cue is signed and dated is a value boost and a collectible boost, for sure. The earlier the cue, typically better, and the fancier, the better.

    It's not a particularly fancy cue, nor an early one, but being signed and dated is a big plus IMHO. Abe Rich didn't sign and date many of his cues.

    Nope. It's not fancy. It meant to be played...

    First one of Abe Rich's cues I've seen signed and dated like this.

    Very cool cue. Thanks for sharing!

    I agree it is very unique to see a signed Abe Rich cue. I don't collect Abe Rich cues but if I did, this would have appeal to me. So many cues are mistakenly identified as Abe Rich cues, it is nice to see one that is undoubtedy the real thing. Thanks for sharing these pictures.

    Why did you stop playing pool?

    I got old:

    • Leaning over the table started hurting my back.
    • My eyes started not seeing so well at the far end of the table!
    • I don't go out drinking like I used to.

    Same here, but I keep playing.

    I do NOT however go to smokey pool halls because I don't want to get lung cancer.

    I'm convinced that the poor health of older players is the direct result of cigarette smoke in the pool halls.

    I think smoking isnt allowed indoors in Florida here, nowadays.

    The smoke is another issue though, it could not have been good for all the beautiful wood cues that were spending endless hours in bars. Dirty hands touching them, beer and alcohol splashed on the cue. Amazing they last

    If we would have thought about it, we never would have brought any prized possession into a disgusting place like that!
