Has anybody seen this? It looks a bit odd. I have a hard time believing these kind of things that sell for "charity." Of course, $399 is a bit much to ask someone to give unless these are actually quality cues.

The auction is written very poorly and gives very little detail on these cues, not to mention poor pictures. What do you all think?

It looks like his signature, not that I'm an expert or anything.

maybe cueless joey can shed some light.

Tbose look like Efren's signature.
How legit the charity is, I don't know.
The cues look like they are replicas of Efren's Jessie cue.
But, that design is so easy for them to copy down there.
She's not going to get $399 for those cues I think.

Not very modest is she? Mentioning that she is a beauty contest winner, etc. I'd be afraid of being ripped off.

DG - wants to see the person sign the cue

Efren's famous $14 cue had a cutup cueball ferrule.
That ugly stick won the 1994 US Open, 3 world-8 and one world 9-ball. Not bad. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Hey, it's a one of a kind... there are only 199 others just like it.

Of course the cueball farville and avalone shell inlays do add the the uniqueness of the cue.

Looks legit to me but the cue is not worth $400 plus I hate those ugly Filipino inlays.

LOL Hi Chris,

I seen a cue my friend has and he paid like $800. for it. It's a local guy and the inlays were all crooked and not lined up in anyway. It looked as if someone threw them up in the air and put the cue underneath it when they landed. I asked him why would you spend $800. for this cue?

He told me that it has a mosaic look and everything was made by him. Even the joint pin down to the rubber plug. I thought he was crazy myself but to each his own, I guess.

Regards,

C.C.

Ha, that's a good one.

Perhaps we should not use the word "inlays" but instead refer to them as "stickers".

I wouldn't even consider that deal. Not a good buy for the $$$, and I'd be skeptical of the charity.

Agree. I would consider buying a signed photograph for $10-$20, but asking for a $400 handout is a bit steep, even for a cue.

It also makes me feel bad if it is for a charitable purpose, cause I don't think she's going to raise those funds. Oh well, you learn as you go, lol.

I think this lady needs to stick to bake sales.

Why do we pressume she's scamming?
She just has no idea how much those cues are worth.
I'm going to send her a pm.
