|Gary Sheffield HR500 2013 Edition.|
As we noted on a report from CigarNews.com, 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Finally, the baseball ball stitch-styled box has been replaced by a more traditional box.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.
