More sad news from NYC... I am certain many of you are familiar with NYC staple, Sam Barnett, co-host with Rich Esserman of the long running NY Pipe Show, has sadly, passed away.
The following is from Rich Esserman from his Facebook post:
Rich Esserman posted this tonight.
Broken Pipe - Sam Barnett passed away on November 11, 2018, Sam had been battling severai illnesses, I knew Sam since April or May of 1978. Sam was introduced to me at the time as another 'pipe nut". We shared many wonderful pipe adventures through out our life including hosting the NY Pipe Show for the last 24 years. I will miss Sam greatly as he was a one of kind personality and a true friend. I will write more in NASPC The Pipe Collector. May Sam RIP.
Sam asked me to contnue the NY pipe - so I will - more to be announced.
Sam was a very sweet man. I will miss him,as I am sure many will.

I've had quite a few chats with him at the NY show. He was typically the doorman and usually had quite a few well worn treasures on his table. Last year he had two Dunhill LC's (priced around $2k if I remember correctly) That was probably my only chance to hold an LC! Who replaces guys like this?
