How much does a used Bata Reyes cue stick go for? Apparently, $50K

Efren "Bata" Reyes' brilliance on a felt table is so mind-blowing to his peers that, at his peak, it bordered on sorcery

That's why memorabilia seekers who want to own a piece of Reyes, still revered in the US billiards circuit, don't mind forking over a fortune.

Efren Reyes' personal cute sticks are a hot commodity for memorabilia seekers. George Calvelo, ABS-CBN News
National coach Rodolfo Luat, Reyes' contemporary and close friend, told ABS-CBN News on Thursday that collectors in the US and Japan have expressed throughout the years their desire to acquire many of the "Magician's" accessories.

Reyes' cue sticks, for instance, are a hot commodity. Some are willing to pay thousands, especially the stick he used to win a tournament championship.

According to Luat, one stick Reyes used for 20 years drew the interest of one American collector who was willing to buy it for $50,000. Reyes bought the stick for P200.

On eBay, several cue sticks with Reyes' engraved signature are also being auctioned off.
