I have 2 Fuente Fuente Opus X cigars from 1998 that have been kept in my humidor (fresh) all these years. They are both 5 5⁄8 x 46. They are pristine.

Was wondering if anyone had a guess as to what they would bring today?

Thanks.

Welcome to forum Kap. Head over to the introduction side and say hi.

Vintage cigars a a fickle business, some love them, some despise. I would say that as an infrequent buyer of others inventory, I don't pay much attention to age and in fact generally lower what in willing to pay if they are older then 2 years. But as I said, everyone is different. My recommendation is you smoke them, post pictures, and tell us your thoughts.

Like Dave said, value may go down as NC's don't seem to age like CC's in fact I have smoked some older NC's and they had lost a lot of flavor.

The short answer is "not a lot" - certainly not as much as you might think having gazed longingly at them for all these years.

Sadly, even though CC's improve with age, there are very few (if any) cigars that appreciate in value.
Aside from some "gee whiz where did you find that" cigars, NC's are probably worth less than current retail in the same vitola.

Only one thing to do man......

Smoke 'em!

Should go nicely with a decent cognac!

On the flip side, FFOX is a line that is generally considered something that ages great, actually some would argue, needs age.

That said, two single sticks, no way to verify age, no history selling cigars(assuming this)...probably lucky to get much more than MSRP.
