The original line of cues consisted of 8 designs, letters A through H, showcased on a flyer produced in 1965. These designs were incorporated into what is now considered the "First Catalog" in 1966 and with 3 added designs. The First Line Catalog now numbered each cue and also featured two cases, which were made in Brooklyn to Palmer’s design and specifications by a company called the Fine Brothers.
