Re: SIX RINGS by Lord Hobo Brewing - Very Limited Edition

Sorry! These cans are all spoken for. I saved one for my own collection. I do have extra Lord Hobo 617 Title Town cans if interested. These are a liquid tribute to all Boston sports teams. I can ship full or empty. I can ship empty for $10 total or full will be a few dollars more to cover shipping. ...

OK - I am done here...the final clean before it goes up for sale or on the "gee-whiz" shelf. This was a fun project! I already found another and KNOW I have more of these either on the shelf or in storage boxes....

Thanks for posting that book pic. I have not been able to find this can online. I did not rub to the "NEW" part of the can because I wanted to maintain the Land of Lakes image...hmm.

SIX RINGS by Lord Hobo Brewing - Very Limited Edition

Hi all! For all you NE Patriots fans out there, I found another great tribute can to Tom Brady and his New England Patriots. These are very rare like the Sam Adams GOAT cans. I only have a few available for sale, so I think the fairest way is to post on eBay. Here is a link to my active auction... I...

Hmm. No response. I was curious too. The best I ever heard of was Blue Poly (as told by Woody and the Can Dr), but you will be hard pressed to find this out of production product. Personally, I usually wipe down with water. Use Goo Gone for any sticky residue or stains. Then I use ICE Spray Wax (mad...

I would pay $10 for the water can if it is clean. I have about 3 different variations and I think they are cool. I think I have two different Boston and one Brooklyn.

Yes, it seems excessive that they jumped 10% on stamps! It used to be 1-2 cents per year!. Shipping is becoming cost-prohibitive on these low priced items.

Re: Update - No Opener Needed 1962-1963

Thanks for sharing! What a great look back at history. It must have been considered a great marketing achievement to have "self opening" cans. I wonder if the average consumer got excited by the NEW technology? I would think they did!

Re: Antique Mall Consolation prize

As for your Shell can, there is no zip code which indicates it was from before 1962/63? In addition, the use of the word INFLAMMABLE was typically switched to simply FLAMMABLE in the 50s and 60s, although I could not find an exact conversion date for that.

Nice colors and my first job was for an ARCO station that became a Shell station. I may have bought it too rather than go home empty-handed.

Re: Dawson’ Master Ale Playing Card

The guy who bought it is named Franky Mitton and lives in Salem, MA. He just posted on Facebook. I think he is some sort of antique collector, etc and says this was the first can he ever bought. Lucky SOB! His pics on FB make the can look even nicer. WOW!
