The Connecticut Ecuadorian blend is offered in a 50x7 Churchill 5 pack in a commemorative, collectors edition box - a tribute to legendary golfer Dr. Charles “Charlie” Sifford.
Born in Charlotte, NC in 1922, Charlie Sifford began smoking Cigars at an early age. While working as a caddie at a local Country Club, Charlie would give his caddie wages of $0.50/day to his mother , to help support his parents and Sifford siblings. He would keep the tips he received for himself , around 10 cents , most of which went to the local tobacconist for his cigars. Charlie would go on to become an accomplished professional golfer, and be referred to as the Jackie Robinson of Golf, for being the first person of color to obtain a Professional Golfers Associations players card.
Charlie had plenty of grit and determination to withstand the injustices of his day - doing so with grace and dignity - while scoring many victories , oftentimes with his trademark cigar. Please enjoy the Legend Brand Sifford Centennial Cigar - dedicated to the life and legend of Dr. Charles L. Sifford.
