Brilliant! Very good answer.AAlmeter said:they're auctioning the collectable american made packaging (ziplock bags) that these cigars come in. by removing them from the packaging, the packaging would be altered and its value, which is much greater than the value of the cigars, would drop quite a bit. so it is in the best interest of both the collectors and dealers of collectable packaging to leave the cigars inside the packaging. as long as the packaging itself, but not the cigars, is being auctioned...all is legal (i believe).
plus ive heard that poker and cigartexan may be autographing the ziplock bags....sending their value skyrocketing.
