Hi all, Just wanted to relate something to you that happened recently. We handled some trophies that had been packed in cardboard - bad idea! There were a group of 4 boxes, and most were torn & squished. They also looked like they may have gotten wet. There was a box with horns, and one of the tips had protruded thru, altho I believe it was okay. Unfortunately, most people that handle your trophies in the transit over don't know or give a darn (remember the Samsonite commercials with the gorilla?) I suggest that you ask to have your trophies packed in wood crates if you have any choice in the matter!
