The American All-Star Humidor

Licensed by the NBA and Handcrafted from the 2011 NBA All-Star Game court

J.C. Newman Cigar Co. has begun shipping  The American All-Star Humidor to premium cigar retailers in the United States.  All six sides of this humidor are made from wood from the floor of the 2011 NBA All-Star Game. An officially licensed product, this humidor is part of the NBA Reclaimed program, which repurposes authentic game-used NBA courts. Each humidor contains 30 The American All-Star cigars, one representing each NBA team, along with a signed certificate of authenticity and a Boveda starter kit.

“Basketball is an American game,” said fourth-generation owner Drew Newman. “My great-grandfather founded our company four years after basketball was invented in 1891. As the oldest American cigar company and maker of the all-American cigar, it’s our privilege to celebrate the greatest basketball players in the world with a humidor made from the wood that they competed on.”

Due to the scarcity of wood, only 40 humidors were made this year.  Each humidor is one-of-a-kind because of its unique pattern of authentic court wood. Pieces of the blue three-point line are inlaid on the lid of each humidor. The humidors highlight the scuffs and scratches made by the greatest basketball players in the world. They are lined with Spanish cedar and are designed to hold 90 cigars. Each was handcrafted by Jason LeGear in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The American All-Star humidor has a suggested retail price of $3,000.

“Running your fingers over the top of this humidor, you can feel its history,” said Newman. “The planks of the floor are uneven and still bear the shoe and ball marks left by the legends who played on this special basketball court.”
