Hello,
It's been a long time since I was last here.

My cigar smoking has dropped to one or two handfuls a year and one of my last Herfs was years ago in Seattle at the Vertigo Club when Pete Johnson was there.

Needless to say, I have been out of the cigar loop and have lost touch with cigar values.

Anyone have any idea what a Pete Johnson signed, Tat Black Ceramic Jar, Box and Cigars are worth? 1 of 1000 jars & 19 of 19,000 cigars.

The cigars are still in the foil wrapper, but years ago, I did open the top flap to check on them when someone online felt that they could mold in the foil wrapper. They look fine.

I see that someone has a ceramic jar on ebay for $1250.00:r

I had a few of these when they came out and added a jar and cigars to an auction for the Troops shortly after I acquired them.

I am down to the above jar w/cigars and an empty signed jar, but I don't remember if I still have the box for it.

I originally planned on smoking these cigars when they hit 5 years old and then moved the date to my retirement (which was last October).
Now I am thinking that due to the small amount of smoking I now do and seeing that I have acquired the palate of a goat, it would be foolish to waste these rare cigars on such a diminished palate.

So, anyone have any idea of what these are now worth?

Thanks
Ken

Nice to "see" you, Ken. :)

I am out of the loop on NC values, but I'm sure someone here can help.

Great to see that you are still here, but I'm a little disappointed, thought for sure that you would have over a 1/4 million posts by now.:banger

Looks like many of the originals have not posted in a while.
I need to call BillyCigar and setup a visit at the Vertigo Club. Hope PapaJohn is still doing good. I lost touch with them while I was handling my parent's estate.

I hope that all is well for you and yours.

Take care.
Ken

Thanks Tom and Ben.

I dug out the Blacks to get some pictures and found a box of limited (200 boxes/5000 cigars) edition SODO El Truinfador that Pete Johnson made for his friend John Ohm, owner of J&J Cigars in Seattle.

I t was a pleasant surprise because I thought I had smoked all of the boxes I bought. I really loved the SODOs.

I confess, I was a Tat whore and still covet the few West Coasts I have left.

Anyway, I'll try to post some pictures.

Sorry, looks like the pictures did work.
I'll try to figure out what happened.

Seems the file size is too large and I can't figure out how to reduce the file size on my iPad. Sorry.

Actually, I might have a buyer for you on the jar with or without the cigars. He tragically had two jar jump to their death recently and is a Tat whore. Let me PM you.

The guy that Beagleone is referring to definitely deserves those cigars and jars - including the SODO! (and whatever else you may be looking at parting with...) :noon

After seeing the pictures of the tragic humidor jar death, a MontyPython sketch came to mind.

If I remember correctly, John Cleese was an auctioneer selling rare antiques.
During the auction of a rare set of glasses he wasn't getting the price he wanted so he dropped and broke a glass.
When the price still did not go up as much as he wanted, he kept dropping them until the price got to where he wanted.

We have here 2 of 998 Tat Black humidor Jars, do we hear 997?:r

Sorry about that, but if you read some of my old posts, I can get a little demented :sl

LOL - I had a few guys thank me as they perceived the value of their jars went just a tad higher...
