    This nicely designed matchbox plugged Hav-A-Tampa cigars. It's catchy design helped sell a lot of stogies, and is a real beauty.

      Darn good piece. The old hand rolling factories are still here but mostly vacant. Another memory. Stuff like this sells like hot cakes to tourists.

      Thank you fhrj2! Sad to hear about the demise of the hand rolled cigars...another part of life that has left us.

      But good news to hear that there is a market for items such as these. I think that I'll hold the matchbox for sentimental reasons...
