Default Would you guys buy these?

Came across this on Craigslist and is a little tempting. Quite a few I haven't heard of though.

http://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/for/2977563261.html

If someone else wants them, feel free to snatch em up and save me from spending money

As long as they look authentic and as though they've been reasonably well cared for- yes

Personally, no only because I've only heard of about half the names listed (that's not to say however, that they are bad sticks). If you do go through with it, make sure they were well cared for and properly stored. Just my opinion!

Yeah that's what makes me paranoid getting cigars anywhere besides a shop or folks on here.

I'll probably hold off. Don't really have the space for them anyway hah

Looks like a Thompson "90" rated sampler that isn't worth the price of shipping IMO.....no

Yeah, I would pass on it. Maybe buy a sampler from a trusted vendor instead.

I'd be most worried about how they've been stored and treated...that being said, with the cutter it's a good deal but you'll have some rockets in there.

I would NOT but it's not a terrible purchase, just be cautious of condition. For the same price you could probably pick up the well known cigars there on CI, so it really just depends on whether you want to try those lesser known sticks.

Yeah I can't help the curiosity. I've bought one cigar-related thing on Craigslist, and it was a cheap humidor. I ended up reselling it a few days later because it was crap.

Typical non-cigar-guy thinks cellophane will keep them fresh or humidified. Beware the dried out cigar! Offer him $35.00

Also:
Don't do it by mail. Setup a time & place to meet. Inspect before purchase.

I've looked at CBid in the past and I usually don't buy enough cigars to make it worth it with the shipping. Cigar Sprint Sale and Cigar Monster however
