View Full Version : estimate cue value....?

I posted earlier asking about a hagar cue that I've never heard of before... I was wondering if anyone could give me some idea as to its value.. I can post some pics if needed, but I wont waste the time if this post gets no response...
A brief description:

i'll start off by stating that i have no idea what kind of wood is in this cue.. the inlay looks to be some kind of burl, the rest of the cue is dark brown w/straight & even grain.. there are a total of 12 ivory inlays,
4 are tiny circles at the tips of the 4 points,
4 are medium sized diamonds within the points, and
4 are at the butt end, arrow shaped & large.
the joint is ivory, w/delicate wood inlay ringwork
the buttplate is ivory, "HC" inscribed
this cue appears to be old, as the lacquer is very yellow..
2 shafts w/new mooris, the guy selling it is asking for $900, says he paid $2,000 6 years ago..
The cue hits great & is very well balanced..
I was told it was made by hagar cues out of chicago.

Any ideas...? thanks for any help you can give...

Are you sure it is not a Hunter Classic cue.

It could be, but the logo is different, and the guy I picked it up from said the maker was based out of Chicago. It is a pretty old cue, so I'm assuming the maker is no longer in business. Thanks.

Sounds like a pretty detailed cue. I have a friend who does appraisals, do you have a photo you can send me? Email me directly at michael@zimsrack.com if you have any photos. I can get a pretty close estimate of the value and origin of the cue. Thanks...Zim

I looked in my bluebook and found no mentioning of Hagar Cues. There is however a Hagan Cues out of AZ. Maybe this might be your cue?

That could be it.. B. Mordt of azbilliards told me that it was made by Hager cues in AZ, and the description of Hager's styles & preferences he gave matched the cue I'm wondering about..

Anyhow, I still would like to get some input on what the cue is worth, so if there are any experts out there, I would appreciate the help.
