I know... i know... I could have just bought a new Rat! But i got this one cheaper actually, lucky me. It has some mild mojo to it, some scratches and wear, but everything works great. Have no idea what year its from. I like the old Rat 2 box more than the new slanted one Gut shot! Just have to smile when you see a signed sticker inside saying "Sir Dolph" (on the pots).
