Home Trades, Passes and Bombs


Being a cigar smoker and a part time "Picker" I was shocked while clearing out an estate with a friend of mine to find this "UNOPENED" Box of Hupmann. Wooden box, 8 3/4" x 7" x 1/2" in a small humidor. This gentleman was a retired University Professor and had a nice collection of alcohol, books, reading room and this UNOPENED Box of Humpann. I was tempted to open it up, try one out but thought the value in this box is the fact that the stamp has never been broken. I must say, the house has been empty for years so I don't know how these cigars are, sitting it that un-checked humidor (no power humidor)....but these have to be worth something to someone. So; I am offering these for consideration to anyone reading this post, I'm located in Ohio (44406) but will ship anywhere; hey even if "you" are not interested, share your comments or suggest where best I can sale these - eBay doesn't allow tobacco sales so that's out. Look forward to some comments. On a side not: with the current COVID19 "STAY HOME" PANDEMIC, I can't tell you how much I miss my weekend trips to the Casino, my glass of Crown Black and my weekend My Fathers Cigar; smoking in the back garage is ok, but just aint the same. Thanks for reading.

    One million and one dollar and a can of SPAM.

    I'll offer $20 for them.
    Probably dry, stale and brittle by now, but the box may be worth the $20.

    The cigars in my photo can describe how worthless theses closed box purchases can be .

    Hey there @JPLSr

    Can you post up a pic of the unopened box?
    Can you post up a pic of the small humidor it was in?
    Can you give us an idea how much you'd like to get out of this box?

    Let's assume the cigars are un-smokable, and if you gave it no thought whatsoever, you might consider it to be a collectable to place on a shelf. However, anybody who knows anything about cigars would recognize it as a visual contradiction, because cigars do not belong on a shelf. But this just occured to me,..... if you had a POS glass top - desk top humidor laying around, you could consider displaying it inside that humidor. It would appear to be logical and legitimately displayed in tandem, even though both are pretty worthless.

    First of all, that catalog belongs in the recycling, Ernest. I mean, you have a dual compartment can, and you throw recycling in the refuse? I mean maybe they don't recycle paper in Carolina. He'll, maybe the laws of physics cease to exist on your stove. Did you get those cigars from the same guy who sold jack his beanstalk beans? Are you sure about that 5 minutes?

    Secondly, stop feeding the troll. The only trolls allowed to be fed are JD, Patrick, and Fvcking Calvin.

    Third, I live with a university professor and she would never take care of a cigar.

    Fourth, quit feeding the fùckīng trolls!

    I love how eagle eye @VegasFrank caught the cigar catalogue on the wrong side of the dual compartment can. Let’s be honest , I was emotionally compromised , and that was not my only mistake that day .

    And I share this with the BOTL, so they won’t, in a moment of weakness, buy sketch sticks and subsequently spike all cigar related propaganda in closest compartment of their trash can.

    Dear @JPLSr ,
    You can find sale of item you seek to sale to an individual who would like to buy model cars and other fake items, most likely an insecure **** who reads Cosmopolitan Magazine and likes to buy sale items because he thinks he's getting a deal. Bear in mind, your mark may also be a woman who is seeking to sale an item to please her unsuspecting husband. Obviously, nobody ever told her that an extended trip away from him or a sensual massage from an attractive Asian lady would suffice. I like San Pellegrino "Limone E Menta", but only with Vodka and Gin, because it literally tastes like Hupmann's **** on its own.
