The Goebel is not made so can't be "Retro"

Rand,
Interesting choice! Looks like 0 209 09 0 from Volume II in the Commemorative section. That would open up the Retro project to some more cans.

Maybe anyone interested in this list could chime in and answer the following questions to possibly narrow down or more firmly define what a Retro can can be.

Retro Questions
• Does Retro refer to only a brand being brought back?
• Does Retro refer to only a can’s design being brought back?
• Does Retro refer to both of the above?
• Does a Retro can have to be in current or recent production?
• Can Retro include “Commemorative” cans?
• Should a Retro can include “flavors” not existing before, but using the new design? (Only had beer before but now lists ale, bock, light, etc?)
• Any other parameters you can suggest for consideration?

I did a project a while back with thoughts of a BCCA magazine article. I looked up possible reference cans used in the design of the BCCA commemorative cans. Could qualify a couple of them if so decided.

While getting suggestions for retro cans, no one stepped up and offered what they thought the criteria for a Retro can should be, so I posted the question in the General Discussion Forum. Got a couple responses that made sense. Here's the link:

https://www.therustybunch.com/phpBB3/vi ... =1&t=45060

With what was offerred, I modified the original list (first pic), created a new list (second pic) and created a third possible list (third pic) in case someone wants to include some commemorative cans as Retros.

I summed it up this way. It's becoming obvious that with these responses, we can't really pinpoint a true definition of a Retro can. Every opinion is legitimate in its theory and examples.

If Retro cans have a place in your collection, then by all means, they should meet YOUR definition of a Retro can.

Yes, John. The 9-0-5 is in the middle image above. It's in the middle row, 4th can from the right.

There were a lot of offerings for Retro can samples. I revised the first image to go with what seemed to be the response making the most sense between this thread and the one in General Discussion. That comment was:

"Retro should resemble the original can. Name with a new design is a new can."

So, I created a new list (2nd pic) based on that theory. Never got any feedback if CANv cans could be considered Retro nor did anyone include the series of Coors commemorative cans as Retros. So unless there's more dialogue on the topic, I'll stay with the middle image and revise the Excel file when I get a chance.
