Will be launching on Tuesday. If you are next in line you will need to figure out puts and takes BEFORE they arrive to allow for discussion and a minimum of downtime. Also, consult http://www.cigarcyclopedia.com/webapp/content/view/944/48/ for relative pricing. Rarity will be taken into account as well. That being said, captainjeebes is on the clock and can submit puts and takes for pass approval starting...NOW.

I'm unsure what it would take to get the Rat but that's my main interest. Patrick and I discussed it and while Drew told him that Pig will ultimately be more rare, given the unreleased status of that one I don't know what I think takes it.

...I have a shuckins special still in tubo.

Bigtotoro
05-28-2010, 10:57 AM
My thought is when released, it is a $12-15 stick. Unreleased...maybe a little more plus a rarity factor. I guess we'll figure it out when someone wants it. Jeebes you can call your puts and takes now.

Do we think the Flying Pg is an even trade? Surely the rarity between the band and the unreleased nature currently has to add to it....

...Perhaps I'm just overly excited about the Rat.

Collectively it looks fine.

Individually the Anejo Shark for the Bengal poses some questions.

Damn both the Shark & Hemingway are gone! :( But I knew they wouldnt last.

I think it looks fine collectively, the Aurora & Illusione are nice sticks, and of course the RyJ ...

I have a couple of issues.
1. Is that an original release Tat Black? Approved if original release, needs reworking if not.
2. Rarity and price don't work for me on that one. See if you can rework it.

I didnt realize it was a 1 for 1 either, but I think thats a GREAT idea.

thegoldenmackid
05-28-2010, 02:18 PM
I'm not sure if 1 for 1 is necessarily good. The original offer (minus the PAM) seemed fine to me collectively given I think there are a couple of trades where there was more given then taken.

But Patrick that's your call.

Bigtotoro
05-28-2010, 02:21 PM
I think 1 to 1 is the way to go. I donot mind a little discrepancy either way, I am just looking for more or less closeness.

Whatever, too expensive to put into production! I call shenanigans. At least until someone can explain where this expense is coming from... and too expensive for what?! Fuente sells $50 cigars regularly! If they're that great, and that expensive, put them in a shiny box and make some $$....

Bigtotoro
06-02-2010, 06:15 PM
As I understand it, the blend is something like seven different tobaccos. I don't completely buy it either. And FYI, I pay $50 for some of those Fuente's and am happy to do it.

Hey guys, am going to have to bow out of this pass. Very Sorry for this. Have been trying to match up cigars the past couple of days and have not been able do to my work has been piling up. I have not been able to even look into my humi or smoke for about week. Instead of holding this pass up, I will drop out. Sorry for the trouble.

Hmm... Have we put a value on the Dirty Rat?

Bigtotoro
06-03-2010, 01:22 PM
I'll stand by my earlier estimation of $15-20, but I will let the peanut gallery have final say on this one. How do you really say on something unreleased that may never actually be released?

FiveStar
06-03-2010, 01:32 PM
Whatever you say goes with me Patrick.

thegoldenmackid
06-03-2010, 02:41 PM
Previously you had stated Jonathan had said that the Pig would be rarer then the Rat, is the Pig good?

Hmmm...

Dirty Rat - Flying Pig
Partagas Benji - Camacho Triple Maduro
SLR Corona - Davidoff Millennium Piramides

Is the value of the God of Fire over/under... screw it. My guess is $35? How much more for rarity.

Bigtotoro
06-03-2010, 02:48 PM
God of Fire retails for $22-25. That is a brand new 2007 that I just bought for $25ish.

Bigtotoro
06-03-2010, 02:49 PM
And they are not especially rare when you find a dealer. I have a local shop that ALWAYS has them in stock.

thegoldenmackid
06-03-2010, 03:22 PM
Hmm... perhaps I can switch the GOF with the SLR. Need to put more in though.

Bigtotoro
06-03-2010, 03:33 PM
I think the Davi for GoF would not be too far off. I had a Davi Millenium Church that I paid about $26 for. What do you guys think?

CaptainJeebes
06-03-2010, 03:38 PM
sounds fair to me. the piramides is around 25 a stick i think

jaydub13
06-03-2010, 03:55 PM
I think that's a fair trade. Similar size, price, and quality, as well as relative rarity.

Bigtotoro
06-03-2010, 04:05 PM
Alright...what do you guys think about the Dirty Rat?

CaptainJeebes
06-03-2010, 04:25 PM
both are fairly rare. the dirty rat maybe a little more.. they probably both have the same msrp so i think its fair.

CaptainJeebes
06-03-2010, 04:26 PM
final call is yours though patrick

Bigtotoro
06-03-2010, 04:39 PM

The DR is a LOT rarer as it has never been released. It is only available at LP functions. It is like comparing the Padron 44th and 45th. One of which you can pick up at a store. I am going to say no on the Pig for Rat. Work on that one, everything else looks good. I am totally good on the GoF for Davi.

thegoldenmackid
06-03-2010, 05:08 PM
I'll just pass on the Dirty Rat. I might get a NUB Cain F and I might think about that.

It wasnít expected for a couple of more months, but weíll be leaving for Korea at the beginning of next week.

thegoldenmackid
06-10-2010, 05:24 PM
I'm no CC pricing expert. I offered up a Davidoff Millennium Piramides for the SLR. The stick is priced around $22ish, so I'd assume anything in the low 20s.

CaptainJeebes
06-11-2010, 01:02 PM
thoughts?

jaydub13
06-11-2010, 04:50 PM
The AB for RP I am fine with. Both are well regarded blends, same size, same price range. The SLR for RP Decade I am hesitant about. Price is the same, but there has gotta be some consideration given for both the fact that the SLR is a CC and that it has 5 years on it. Both are rarity concerns, so I think that ups the actual value, IMHO.

thegoldenmackid
06-11-2010, 05:04 PM
I'm with Jason as well. I think the CC factor and age increase value, it's hard to say just how much though.

rajuabju
06-11-2010, 09:27 PM
Well Patrick said it the SLR was in the $7-11 range and also not to worry much about the rarity factor, which is why I went with a $9 right in the middle stick.

But I can understand that "CC" mystique lol. Lemme see what else I have in stock ATM, as I have wanted to try an SLR for some time now, will check and try another option shortly.

My gut says the same thing, but I agree on paper it seems to work. I am a rookie in the stick for stick trades; are there any standards on what premiums are given for age or ISOM?

I understand. For me, it isn't the "CC mystique," it's the age. I could buy an SLR today for $7-11, but not one with 5 years on it. I don't think it merits a more expensive stick, necessarily, just something, i dunno, a little more "special." Hard to quantify, I know, just a gut feeling I have.

Just opened the package, and wow, this is the most neatly packed and well organized package I've ever seen. Totally well insulated and cushioned all around. Nice.

IMO, because of the Tupperware and the humidity device, best to leave the ziplocks open (and in reality, I dont even see a need for the ziplocks at all, but I will leave them).

My knowledge of Cubans isn't enough to really speak on that. I don't agree with the LFD/Camacho.


The LFD was limited to 3k cigars and isn't anywhere near as available as the Camacho. The prices don't work out, particularly b/c the Camacho's can be had easily via CI at $13.50 a stick.

The Cubans are fine. I wanted everyone's insight on the other two. I know that I gave $22 for the LFD. The Camacho is what I wanted to hear about. CI is selling 25 count boxes for $500. But, they are also selling a 3 pack for $40. I am not sure if that is 3 PE's or 1 and 2 other of something else. Personally, 1 to 1 private trade I'd do it because I have wanted to try one. But I do not account for $ in personal dealings. So...are they still out? Are they still made? Is it fair to you? Respond privately if you like.

I think the Solomon is much harder to get. CI seems to have the Camacho in stock, and I can not find any Solomons. Also, according to the tracking site they had 5 of Camacho Pre- Embargos for $49.99 on a Jam on 5/20/10. I am not sure how the rarity thing plays into this pass, or if the cyclopedia is more where we should be looking. Not saying I am against the swap just putting out what info I found.

Ok, I need the dirty rat for a Puff BOTL. Not sure what I should be shooting for here, or what a reasonable trade is... so, here are some things I can put up to trade (listed from the trade I'd most like to do, to the one I'd least like to do)

Dirty Rat > Padron 1964 Anniversary Imperial
Dirty Rat > Anejo Shark
Dirty Rat > Tatuaje RC 233
Dirty Rat > Tatuaje Cojuno 2003 or 2006
Dirty Rat > Tatuaje T110
Dirty Rat > Flying Pig

I'd also like that LFD Salomon, but i don't think I have anything in the $20 range... my box goes from $10-$15 a stick to $30 a stick fast. I guess I'll put down a similar list and see what people say...

LFD Salomon > Padron 1964 Anniversary Imperial
LFD Salomon > Tatuaje RC 233
LFD Salomon > Tatuaje Cojuno 2003 or 2006
LFD Salomon > Tatuaje T110
LFD Salomon > Flying Pig

If nothing flies on the LFD, no worries.

I also have no idea what a 1998 Partagas is worth... but I LOVE Partagas CC's...

'98 Partagas CC > Padron 1964 Anni Imperial
'98 Partagas CC > Flying Pig
'98 Partagas CC > Tatuaje T110

The last one I'm interested in is the Davidoff, which is exactly $20 a stick - DAMMIT!

Davidoff > Cohiba CC Siglo III

So, there we go... let me know what everyone thinks! I have other sticks if I missed the mark on these...
(Sorry for the long list, I suck at this apparently)

What do you guys say about this one - Dirty Rat > Tatuaje T110? Price points should not be too far off. The t110 is pretty rare on it's own. I think the RC233 is a little much for the Rat, but we'll see what folks say, I guess.

Same Here. Also, I could live with the Rat for the T110 but think that Patrick should make the call.

I do not have a good handle on the age factor and "good years" of the CC market to be solid on the Partagas trade. But my gut feeling is I think either the flying pig or the Padron seems fair.

I enjoy looking up values, info and commenting on the trades - excelent pass guys! Thanks for listening to a noob passer !! :blah:

I disagree with pulling the T-110, it's not any more expensive, but the rarity is extremely high given the 200 boxes.

Magnate
07-02-2010, 06:37 PM
La Aurora Preferidos ($13) - Torano 50 Yr ($6) [No rarity factors]

La Aurora Preferidos ($13) - T-110 ($11 + Rarity)

So, the T110 rarity is there, but we're looking at a $26 Put for a $17 + Rarity Take... And this gets a Tat out of the pass...

EDIT: If you add 80% to the T110 for rarity, it goes from $11 to $20 and that evens it up to $26 = $26... and with that, I sincerely doubt you could post single T110's in the WTS section for $20 a stick without getting some PM's about gouging BOTL's... $100 for a 5 pack of T-110's? No way...

I can see reason to question the T110, but it does help make the Torano take make more sense.

As always, up to Patrick for final approval...

CaptainJeebes

didnt we decide earlier it was 1 for 1 and not collective?

I think you're right (without going through the thread)... but, in that case, he also shouldn't take the Torano for the La Aurora...

I'm fine either way, honestly... I put my spin on it... perhaps we can get some more opinions!

Ducrider
07-02-2010, 07:32 PM
On a single basis, I can see the point about the T110 rarity, but seeing as how the other La Aurora is going in for a $6 stick, it seems fair to me. :neutral:

Bigtotoro
07-02-2010, 07:37 PM
Not worried about the $, but rarity is an issue. I shot it down when Charlie wanted the dirty rat so I have to do the same for the stick it was traded for seeing that rarity made that work. I'd love for you to have it, just rework that a little.

Bigtotoro
07-02-2010, 07:39 PM
I consider the 110 a $17-20 stick for reference sake.

thegoldenmackid
07-02-2010, 11:57 PM
I originally was on the other side of things, I thought that collective puts and takes would be helpful, if you were off a dollar here or there, we could make up a lot. However, given the leniency, it's easier to stick to one to ones.

At the end of the day, there still needs to be some super rare sticks in there, like the Dirty Rat/T110, etc...

Bigtotoro

I think the RC233 is the rarest thing in there. I could be wrong.

I don't know enough about all the Tats (only did tons of 110 research b/c I acquired one) my point was more... sure, you can through in $20 sticks to the box, but rarity has to be a factor, independent of price, or at least that's my opinion.

Bigtotoro
07-03-2010, 02:13 AM

07-03-2010, 11:04 AM
If anyone wants RC233's, I think I know where they're just chillin' on a shelf... If I'm not mistaken, they're just under $20 a stick and if you've never seen one, surely have $20 worth of tobacco in them - they're 9x55!!

I want to be there when you smoke the Gran Cojuno!

Gran Cojuno for Opus seems plenty fair as the Cojuno's are even available at CI for about $14 each on a box, but Opuses can be hard to get for some people... and is probably worth more than $14.

I guess Cohiba for Cohiba is fine with me... If it doesn't satisfy the pass, I'll trade you outside the pass, Russ.

As for the Tat for a PAM... I'm feelin' iffy on that one... PAM's are easy to find and those are $10ish but the 2003 Cojonu are hard to find now and more than $10. You should know that there were some on the shelf @ Smokey Joe's today for like $12 or so if you wanna just grab a couple before they're gone. (That place is awesome)

I am fine with those. I have several locals where I can get Cojonu 2003 off the shelf pretty much every day. On a side note, I will pretty much always approve an Opus being put. If the box gets back to me full of Opusii, I will be content.

I just received the box.

Everything is in good order, except I did inventory and the Emerald Tubo is actually a Sapphire Tubo. Otherwise everything is here and happy.

The LFD Salomon was a miscommunication, as I was expecting a different stick. I thought it was the one in this post - https://www.puff.com/forums/vb/cigar-pifs-maws/257640-non-cuban-maw-3-a-15.html#post2911677

While I was wrong on the LFD, I'm not going to screw up the pass... but this does make me want to be more careful in the future.

Also, the tube of gel that was in here opened and there were gel chunks all throughout... I picked them up and put them back in the tube... appears to be no damage done, though.

Will post pic of puts and takes ASAP.

Magnate
07-15-2010, 06:08 PM
Actually, I realized in this process that I do prefer waiting til I have the sticks to make my puts and takes... I get the time saving aspect... but, there's a big downside for me, personally... Once I got the smokes, there was one I took (the LFD) that I wouldn't have taken... and there are 2 - 3 more that I would have tried to get... It sucks opening the box and saying, OOOH, I want that one, and I can't have it...

Oh well, why cry, I've gotten some AWESOME smokes anyhow!! Thanks for putting this together Patrick! I don't want to seem ungrateful.

Here's how it goes.

Take LFD > Put RC233 | Take Partagas CC > Put Cojonu 2003 | Take LP Dirty Rat > Put T110 | Take Davidoff > Put Cohiba

Got it today, will be back out tomorrow.

Box looked good, and smelled even better! I added a 5 ct zip lock so that all sticks (except the RC233 and the tubos) will be in its own slot, and refilled the humiditube.

Both the Padron's were the exclusivo size, but one was good few shades lighter then the other. I took that one as it had a small piece of wrapper missing at the head and I did not think traveling anymore would be good for it. So Landis will be getting the exclusivo Maduro size for sure.

Will post DC after I drop it off.

Thank you all for a great pass!
