Something New in Pipestud’s Consignment Shop!
I am pleased to be able to offer my RYO brothers and sisters some sublime old stuff in order to taste the huge difference a little age can make when rolling your own with some famous tobaccos. Ogden’s of Liverpool, Bugler in an old Key Twist tin, the famous Players and the old McDonald’s Export from Canada, just to name a few. Like all the tins I sell, these are full and factory sealed and ready to please. 1970’s into the early 1990’s tins that contain leaf that will shock and amaze you once rolled up and lit! Dizzying and gratifying! If you see something below that you might like just follow the easy ordering instructions located on the menu and we’ll get you fixed right up!
RYO1 – Sears & Roebuck Cigarette Blend in a key twist 8 oz tin that has a tin bottom so puffy that it looks ready to burst (a good thing meaning fermentation gasses have really aged the contents to a smoothness that probably can’t even be described). This 8 oz tin hails from the 1980’s and sells for $40 – SOLD
RYO3 – Perhaps the most famous Roll Your Own tobacco ever to hit the market; these are factory sealed with tax stamps still intact 200 g tins of Player’s from the early 1990’s. John Player and Sons had 2/3rds of all the cigarette sales in England for nearly a century before divesting and Imperial Tobacco Limited continues to make the brand in Montreal, Canada (the location of manufacture for these tins). Noted for its easy to roll cut of rich Virginia leaf, and a touch of Orientals, Player’s is as smooth and rich tasting as any RYO ever produced. I have 1 tin still available for $40
RYO4 – From Ogden’s in Liverpool England, this is a 8 oz factory sealed with tax stamp still intact tin of Ogden’s Mild Virginia. This still sealed tin is in fabulous condition and sells for $40
RYO5 – From 2001, this is the famous RYO, Drum, in a 150 g tin. Bright Virginia leaf is combined with some Burley to produce a rather strong sensation for the smoker. And as noted on the side of the tin, 200 rolling papers are included inside! This tin sells for $30
RYO5 – Produced by W.C. Macdonald, these are the long-standing Canadian RYO, Export Medium in 200 g factory sealed tins with tax stamps still intact. They hail from the early 1990’s and is a 100% Virginia RYO. Although touted as “medium” in flavor presentation I am told that this is a fairly stout short shag cut tobacco that is no doubt very mellow by now due to all the aging of the Virginia leaf. I have 2 tins available for $35 per tin
RYO6 – Produced by W.C. Macdonald, this is the long-standing Canadian RYO, Export Mild in a 200 g factory sealed tin with tax stamp still intact. It hails from the early 1990’s and is a 100% Virginia RYO. Although touted as “mild” in flavor presentation I am told that this is a short shag cut tobacco that has some punch but is no doubt very mellow by now due to all the aging of the Virginia leaf. I have 1 tin available for $35
RYO7 – Although not dated on the tin, the owner of this Macdonald’s British Consols has a spread sheet indicating 1992 as the year of purchase. It was made in Montreal, Canada and is 200 grams. Hey, I think the picture of the cute gal in the kilt makes this one worth the price alone! This 25-year old RYO tobacco in perfect factory sealed with tax stamp still intact condition sells for $35
RYO8 – Here’s another Canadian RYO tobacco – 200 g tins that are also dated back to 1992 from the same seller as above. It is called Matinee. A handsome pair of tins with tax stamp still intact. I have 2 tins available for $35 per tin
RYO9 – This is the Danish made Long Full Flavor cigarette tobacco in a 150 g factory sealed tin from the early 1990’s. As noted on the side of the tin – “… consisting of the finest Virginia and Burley tobaccos – providing a full flavor cigarette taste.” Just 1 tin available for $30
RYO11 – Another wonderful find here – From the Pinkerton Tobacco Company in the 1980’s, these are still beautifully conditioned and perfectly factory sealed 1-1/2 oz tins of Velvet pipe and cigarette tobacco. As noted on the tins – “Made from the best sun-ripened Kentucky Burley tobacco aged to mellow perfection in nature’s slow but sure way. Burns cool and sweet in pipe or cigarette.” I have 8 of these marvelous old tins available for $20 per tin
RYO12 – The ultimate for the RYO lovers! This is a hard plastic covered display case that even has a wall hanging holder on the back to display (or, even smoke), some of the all-time great Roll Your Own tobaccos. I almost purchased this one myself when I saw Stud Smoking Tobacco pouches in the mix! This display contains 20 still full and factory sealed pouches of some truly remarkable old RYO’s such as Laredo Cut Plug, Country Gentleman, Bull Durham, Duke’s Mixture, and Hoosier. There’s even a Maryland Club tobacco and here I thought they only made coffee. It looks like these pouches are all approximately between 1-1/2 and 2 ounces. A really fun old classic display that I thing would quality for admission into the Roll Your Own museum… well, if there was one. How do I price something like this? It is priceless! But, I will take $85 for it
