Few more satisfying feelings of accomplishment than finding and adding one of your Grail cans to your collection. Congratulations!

Re: Bud Light NFL can question

The past couple of years, they have sold them all in the same pack. Are they doing that again this year? I wish I could find out before I leave for Omaha. I will not have Saints cans at Canvention after getting torched by them last year. I expect that they will because they did sets last two years

Re: Rusty Bunch Chapter Table Volunteers Needed in Omaha

Can't believe we're less than a week to Canvention and there are so few volunteers for the table. Maybe if this thread was on the general discussion page? I would do more if I could- it all depends on how fast I can run out of stuff to trade or sell.

I will have 39 Saints and 39 LSU cabottles for sale or trade in Omaha. May buy another 20 of each. Have not decided yet.

My two cents, I would keep both of them, especially if that brand is one of the focuses of your collection. That is a significant difference. You'll regret it later if you let one go.

Re: We will be busy for a while

From my experience, those oddball brands from Royal actually move at larger shows or more distant shows from New Orleans. Some of them are rather rare. Good rule of thumb- keep the crimped steel. Dixie only did crimped steel for like a few months and none of those are very common.
