Slo-mo has caught on much quicker than his moniker implies...he recently introduced himself as fresh meat here, calling himself Mr. Noobie McNooberson AKA Slo-mo...

A package arrived yesterday, without a return address.......red flag...danger...shenanigans...somethin bad bout to happen...

the box contained a ziplock bag full of cigars bands, which he had PM'd me about, out of the blue...never heard of him, since he hadn't posted before...he said he'd been lurking for awhile and saw my thread on the Trades board ISO cigar bands...he said he had a bunch and wanted to give them to my son for his art hobby...sure, send them...

damm if he didn't pull off a CBid sucker punch...in the box, below the bag of cigar bands, was another zip-lock - full of a nice assortment of cigars:

Alec Bradley Prensado
Alec Bradley Nica Puro
Black Pearl
CAO Flathead
CAO La Traviata
Montecristo Fer de Lance
Montecristo White Series
Nub Sun Grown
Partagas Icon
Sancho Panza Triple Anejo
Cohiba Club (2) cc
Jose L. Piedra Cazadores cc
Jose L. Piedra Crema cc
Quintero Londres cc
Romeo Y Julieta Petit Corona cc

plus a Goabroa mini hygrometer!


All this.............................................and no return address!!!

a lesser noob would have sent an open carton of Tarrytons.
this guy might be a keeper.

back in the day, I smoked Tareytons...until someone said they were like the original Virginia Slims...I switched to Camels, just to make sure...

Just now saw this thread, guess I am a little slo.

Thank you all for the kind words.

Delta1, I know that it was a total CBid Noob selection that I sent but I hope that there was at least one or two that you haven't had or wanted to try. I've got another few bands saved up, they'll probably be in the mail in a couple of weeks. Hope the art project is going well.

Noob selections don't generally include a half a dozen CCs. Just sayin'

I think it took around a year before they tracked me down, LMAO! I would always put their address for the return and mail them from another small town here in West TN, hehe

Nice hit
