Wow!… He really smoked that one into the bleachers!
The HR 500 is a celebratory cigar brand from Rocky Patel commemorating Gary Sheffield’s milestone 500th home run. To celebrate such a momentous achievement Rocky created a large 6.5” x 52 Toro size to capture Gary’s larger than life persona. This impressive size delivers volumes of rich savory smoke with notes of coffee, earth, black pepper, and sweet spice. Rocky worked closely with Sheffield to create this special blend. Sheffield himself has been an avid cigar smoker for 20 + years and proudly states in numerous interviews that “this is the only cigar he now smokes”.
The cigar comes in a collector top quality humidor box that’s covered in white rawhide with red stitching, just like a real MLB baseball. In the center there’s a gold-toned plaque with the date of his 500th homerun. On the inside of the box lid is a full-color picture depicting Gary hitting that famous number 500. Below that is where the real treasure lies....20 gorgeous long filler cigars wrapped in dark Ecuadorian Habano seed wrappers that are so oily, they almost glisten. The long filler is a special blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos held together by a Honduran Jamastran binder. This combination creates a beautiful medium to full bodied smoke, with an easy draw, and smooth burn. These are a definite must try cigar! So whether you're a die-hard baseball fan, or lover of the leaf, don’t wait too long to order these, because this “homerun” is a limited-edition release by Rocky Patel & Mr. 500 himself Gary Sheffield.
