    So I went to a local antique shop this afternoon, and made an offer on a lot of 5 pipes, 2 Brighams Sportsman, a very nice p-lip Peterson, a Shannon(which if I'm not mistaken is a Peterson second?), and a really neat little York House(I can't find much on the interwebs about it, if anyone knows anything please feel free to share lol). All that for 50$, they are all in pretty bad shape, but I already started the restoration, will try to post pictures of the finished products! So... was it a good deal? lol

    ......I guess it must be - as your title says "awesome" aquisition" ;). But difficult to say - without seeing the condition, $10 a pipe is around average ebay price (over here, at least) for run-of-the mill pipes. Look forward to some pics? after clean-up.....enjoy!
    OT :th1:

    I got a Castleford set, it seems a little gentler yet efficient, my old one was a Chinese butner styler, I had paid like 3$ shipped free lol.

    ps. I really like that whitehall BTW.

    I love that whitehall ... it's an unreal smoker ! Are the Sports pipes that you scored smaller in length w/ a regular sized bowl ?

    No, they are just unfinished brighams from the 70s, that's just the model name , I think it's because they used to make them every years for the Toronto sportsman conference, I'm smoking one as my avatar.

    The Brigham Sportsman pipe is a Canadian classic. My grandfather's pipe is a Sportsman (big bent billiard). They were gently rusticated and unfinished pipes that were good for the outdoorsmen who frequented the show, where they were quite inexpensive, though not cheap in quality. I have been trying to find as much info about them as I can, but Brigham took their history off their site. I did a rescuer job on one and sanded I smooth and there was a very pretty pipe under the grime of decades.
