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!

Re: Dawson’ Master Ale Playing Card

Haha! I wish! I have not been on CL for about a week cuz I was on vacation in the Azores!!! A beautiful island if you ever get the chance to visit! Delicious food, good wine & beer. As for the Dawson, there are plenty of beer can "hawks" in the area. If you think it went for $400, I guess somebody g...

Craigslist score!!! The Can Gods Are Smiling Down On Me!

Hi all, Perhaps I was just overdue, or perhaps because I displayed my cans in the Public Library, but the Can Gods have definitely smiled on me this week! Like many of you, I was searching thru Craigslist and found a posting for some cans nearby for 'Best offer'. The picture looked interesting, but ...

Re: 7 Up Flat Sells For $443.67

Interesting choice of backdrop—literally for the auction... Ha! I never even noticed until you made your post. WOW! Sex sells!!! That background art is superb! In a related theme - I am glad I picked up a super clean 7 UP flat this weekend @ Woodfest for only $10 (alas, not a fancy export one)

Re: Prayers go out to our fellow members expected to be directly impacted by Hurricane Florence

I must admit, whenever I hear about flooding, fires, tornadoes and hurricanes one of my first thoughts is "what about the beer cans?" or any other similar collection. Most people are smart enough to seek shelter and most home furnishings can quickly be replaced or upgraded, but those beloved collect...

Re: Another way to attract new collectors to the hobby!

Bob, Nice job! One thing I would suggest adding is an example of a few dumpers, maybe a before and after. I have always recommended propping up the dumper or off grade cans because this may encourage someone who has less shine on there cans that there cans are good too. I remember when I first join...

Re: LAST WEEKEND on RB! World Champion Clydesdale sign w/BONUS!

Thanks Scott! I agree with your assessment. The truth is I did not sell it because I needed the money, but rather that I was tired of storing it. At approximately six feet in length, it was a two man lift for safe handling. It sat in my attic for roughly 12 years and it was time to sell it. I knew t...

Oh well! I had it at a few shows in 2014...even the Seekonk show if I recall correctly, but no bites. Life is all about the timing :)

Holy cow! This is an old post. I sold that to someone on Craigslist for about $400. I think I tried to sell for over 1 year and finally got sick of towing it around and storing it. I "re-invested" the funds into some nice cans :) The sad thing was when I first got it, I was told it was worth $2k, bu...
