I was wondering if anyone had information about where I could find Meucci Original cues manufactured from 1970 - 1975 for sale.

Good luck! I don't think Meucci existed as a cue manufacturer in 1970. The first I can remember of Bob Meucci selling cues under his own name would be in late 1973. He used to come into the Golden Cue on Winchester in Memphis and hand them out to get people to try them.

Some of the early cues (I have a $40/retail Meucci made in 1974 or 1975) don't even have his name on them - you have to know where it came from. And many of the Meuccis from this era have been junked because the butts warped.

Spiderman...My first cue was a Meucci, circa 1972, purchased from a billiard supply store on the south side of Chicago. Like yours, it did not have the Meucci name on the cue. I paid $100 (a LOT then), and I still have the cue...the butt is not warped. However, the plastic collar around the bottom of the shaft cracked two different times, over the course of several years, and was replaced by Bob for free, both times.
