East India Trading Company to Release ‘Prize Fighter’

(Tamarac, FL) – June 20, 2013: The East India Trading Company is proud to announce the much-anticipated launch of ‘Prize Fighter’, that will unveil at this summer’s IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas, NV. Named after historic boxing fighters from the 1900’s, Prize Fighter brings another meaning and a new dimension to the hand-made cigar category by offering a premium smoking experience at an affordable price-point.

Made under the blend masters from K Hansotia & Co, Prize Fighter is a consistent, mild-medium bodied cigar with a smooth and elegant flavor profile that can be enjoyed at anytime of the day. This hand-crafted cigar showcases a gorgeous Connecticut shade/Ecuadorian wrapper, that pairs perfectly with an Ecuadorian/Indonesian binder and a 3-year aged Dominican filler.

“We are very excited and optimistic about the launch of Prize Fighter,” said Juan Lopez, National Sales Director of Gurkha Cigar Group. “We like to call this product ‘recession proof’, due to its affordability and great quality.  This is a new venture for the company as we enter into the value-priced cigar category. We have very high expectations for this brand.”

    15. Yet another phrohgtapoic group was taken in St. Louis at the same time. A fourth person joined the group, Major or Col. C. C. Campbell. (On the back of one copy of Plate 16 he was identified, but nothing more is known of him.) The exact size and location of the original of this rare pose are unknown. In 1937, it was in the collection of Carl Haverlin, but it vanished shortly thereafter. It has been published only once before, in Mankind magazine, vol. 1, no. 8, August, 1968.16. Major or Col. C. C. Campbell is the central figure in a very unusual group photograph, most likely taken at the same time as the other group pictures. This picture exists in two formats: one, an unmarked carte de visite, and the other, cabinet photo bearing the imprint, Bowman, Ottawa, Illinois. Because of the unusual cropping, Booth is merely a vignetted head in the left corner. It would appear that both of these are copies made for Campbell, probably taken from a vertical format picture, which has been lost. This curious photograph is published here for the first time and is very rare.
