Best Rustication Ever

Post by JudgeRusty » Wed Feb 28, 2018 7:33 pm

I could not decide whether to post in Latest Pipe Purchase, Pipe of Man's Desiring or Ugly Pipe Thread (in deference to Coco & Joshua).

My latest, is a Randy Wiley from 1983. It has a chip in the stem, but a pipe cannot be perfect, I guess.

Hold off on offers. This one is not for sale. :lol:

Should have been National Champs instead of just 1983 SEC champs. #3 team going into the Sugar Bowl. Won. #1 & #2 lost their bowl games. Polls voted #5 Miami as National Champion after beating Nebraska.

I’m just glad we found this one and got a solid bid in for this beauty; pure chance that the other 5-6 Auburn pipe smoking fans missed this one on eBay. ;)

Gloriously repulsive. When we meet for the first time, you’ll need to sport this bad boy.

Apparently, there used to be a lot more.
Here is the message I promptly received from Randy Wiley via email: These pipes were ordered by colleges to be sold in their book store. I did many of the top colleges on the eastern U.S. They sold like hot cakes. The pipes were so time intensive I had to cease making them after a few years. I hope you enjoy it and it brings you much enjoyment.

I first read this as the Best Rustyfication Ever!
And thought it would be about one of our friend Rusty's many briars.

I saw one of his UF ones on eBay, let’s just say at first I wasn’t sure that it was a gator that was carved on the pipe. The quality of the carving on your Auburn pipe is one hundred times better than that one. Guess he figured the Florida fans would never be sober enough to notice.

You know, in my day you could get a pipe inlaid with your year of graduation and college in silver. That's a friggin monstrosity....
