Early Brunswick Ralph Greenleaf Two Piece Custom Cue Stick

Not much is known about this early cue. I believe it was manufactured by Brunswick and pre-dates the Titlist blank. Notice the unique veneer colors and simplicity of the butt section. It was probably produced during the Great Depression when Ralph Greenleaf was in his prime, traveling the country playing pool and billiards. The cue is not unlike Rambow Cues that came later. This cue features a full splice of rosewood into maple, with four veneers on each point. There is a leather wrap and a brass joint. If you happen to have some documentation of this model cue, please contact me so that I can update this page. This cue is in excellent condition and belongs to the Rich Sheerman collection. Thanks to the Sheerman collection for the photos and the permission to publish them on this web site.
