Can anyone tell me the best place to sell an original Balabushka cue (circa 1973) and what the price ranges are? Thanks.

If it's an "Original" Bushka, it's only worth $50-$75 and I'll buy it from you to help you out. But only this once.

If this is in fact a real Balabushka, you might check www.cuecollector.com (http://www.cuecollector.com) . A friend of mine recently sold a Franklin-era Southwest cue through their services and are legit. In order to get a price quote from them, you would probably have to get the cue verified (they have information on who can do this. For instance, if you had a Gus Szamboti cue, it would be sent to his son Barry, for certification. All info is on the site).

There is still a big demand for their cues, so if this is a certified Balabushka, and it's in reasonable shape, you could get a good amount for it.

Good luck,

I have found Dick Abbott at www.billiardcue.com (http://www.billiardcue.com) to be honest and reliable when buying and selling collectable cues. Contact information is on his web site.
