Re: Pop can shows

Is there a Cocoa Cola collecting organization like the BCCA or RB, and if so, can a connection be made if there is a show to be put on (on-line or in-person) to get some cross-over interest? Getting even 5-10 people from another organization to join the RB or BCCA would be a "win" if it was in conju...

Re: Post Office pranksters?

I got one of those a couple of months ago. If memory serves, it was a magazine that was partially torn, or something similar. It was nothing too important, that I remember.

8 oz currents

Re-reading the Sept/Oct BCCA magazine, I see the article about the baseball themed 8 oz can just out on the market. Additionally, there was mention of 2 other 8 oz cans recently put out. Does anyone have any extras to part with? looking for one example of the three cans. Yes, I collect small cans. T...

Story and question about old BCU

Right around 30 years ago, perhaps 28-30 years ago just after I married and moved to St. Louis and got back into can collecting, I was at a outdoor trade show (not Swap A Rama, but a smaller show) and I had my BCU book with me. I was very attached to the book at that time, as the BCU was perhaps the...

Re: Searching for Dr Pepper imitations

in the store again and I saw a 8 oz Dr. Thunder. It was in Walmart this time, so I assume you either have it or can get it?

I am talking to DrWho, by the way.

Let me know if you need me to pick some up for you

Pop can shows

Are there any pop can shows that occur in either Wisconsin or perhaps Minn. or Illinois?
Just wondering, as I have two different relatives that collect, at least causally, pop cans.
You know, shows like our beer shows, except focusing on pop and soda.

Forgot several more things, but thought of three: Make sure you attend the craft beer night early rather than late. They usually have a glass to keep, but sometimes run out after the initial rush. Secondly, the BCCA business meeting on Friday almost always has a give-away item as well. You cant get ...
