Wow! Just thought I'd check in to see how this was going. It's a shame to see all of those damaged sticks. :angry:

Here are my proposed puts and takes....

matt and I are meeting tomorrow to transfer the pass.

T: #76 WOAM P: #89 Hemingway Classic Maduro
T: #81 BTTB Don Pepin Garcia P: #90 Tatuaje Especiales
T: #83 VSG Wizard P: #91 Tatuaje Cojonu 2003
You might want to check on the rarity of the cigars you are looking to trade for. The WOAM only comes out twice a year, and the BTTB is a special release that only came out once for The Outlaw. Both the Hemingway and the Tatuaje are regular production released cigars.

I was under the assuption that WOAMS and Classic Maduros only come out twice a year, together. I PMed the person who put the BTTB to ask about price and rarity. I was directed to the outlaw website where the stick is avaliable from $11 for a single to $8 per stick if you buy a box.

I don't know too much about the Outlaw Pepin, but the WOAM and all the Hemi Maduros only come out once or twice a year...depending on the year. As far as rarity between the two goes, it seems just from casual reading that there are far more WOAMs in circulation than Sigs and Classics, as these are the primary Hemi Maduros I see going into and coming out of passes. This probably due to the fact that Fuente keeps including them in their samplers (Holiday 2006, Holt's Father's Day, etc.). Just my $0.02, but I'd say a Classic Maddie trumps a WOAM any day of the week.

That is correct. I called Holts and PM'ed Moki and just found out the same thing. Learn something new every day! :thumbs: beaucredo and I are PMing back and forth trying to figure things out. Thanks for the heads up though. :)

Holy crap, I can't believe this one is over. Thanks a lot Blue Dragon, aside from the learning process it was a blast to get that package and "have" to go through it.

OMG ... David, I need to apologize. I read this completely backwards. I usually always see them listed as 'this is what I want to take and this is what I want to trade for it'. You have them listed as Puts and then Takes; AND you even spelled it out for me... my bad. :blush: These would have been completely appropriate as well. If you still want to trade for the Hermosos, please do so. :thumbs:
