Gary Sheffield HR500 2013 Edition.

As we noted on a report from, baseball great Gary Sheffield is back with another cigar for Rocky Patel Premium Cigars.  The HR500 (Gary Sheffield 500 Homerun Club Cigar) 2013 edition brings an all-new blend and some different packaging.

The HR500 2013 edition uses an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper Unlike 2012 edition, this year’s edition is box-pressed as opposed to rounded.

The 2013 edition features some new banding.  It features a new primary band and the secondary band is now on the footer.  There is also a wrap on the middle of the cigar with Sheffield’s image on it.

Finally, the baseball ball stitch-styled box has been replaced by a more traditional box. The boxes will now contain 10 cigars as opposed to 20.

Last year, we had an honor to have a brief conversation with Sheffield.  He genuinely seemed excited about being a part of the industry.   He is now one of a select few celebrities with more than one cigar blend bearing his name.

At a glance, here is the Rocky Patel HR500 2013 edition:
