Anyway, I found it ironic that the seller of the repo who stealing other ebayer pictures to make the repro cans has his pictures protected. When you right click on the photo it says 'Images protected by Auctiva. Sign up at http://www.auctiva.com to protect your images'. Give it a try with the link below.

Link to viking auction.
Turn off javascript and you should be able to right-click & save the pics. I use opera, so when I right-click it asks if I want to stop executing scripts on the page. I don't know if firefox has something similar.

Mike, you are the frontrunner in the "Hall of Shame"! Congrats!!!

You represent the epitome of what the Rusty Bunch is all about. Only a true beer can collector could understand why you kept the can.

Just when you thought fallscityfreak was a total "shiny can snob" here is my offering for the hall of shame!

I dumped (and I use that term loosely) these cans in Missouri this May on a fishing trip with my Dad. We checked into a local Mom & Pop type motel and I asked the owner if there were any old dumps in the area that were acssable. She clued me in on one that was just up the road. I checked it out briefly on the second day and this was my find. No digging, metal detectors or maps (ya, I know, where's the fun in that) but I didn't have a lot of time. But I know right where the dump is and plan on returning this fall.

I just picked up these cans on sight. Cone tops right on the surface! What lies buried??? From left to right Stag with cap still attached, the low pro is a Goetz Country Club, Schlitz soft top, IGA soda can and the ever present Budweiser flat. The pick a pac soda partial was a schlep-a-long as well.

Will fallscityfreak proudly desplay with the other collection? . . . .NOT! :lol:

Mike, that is one great label. Note I didn't say great can, as that wouldn't be true.......

Mike, is that Apollo one of mine by any chance? I remember giving away a couple and one of 'em crumbled in the mail. Was that you or maybe it was Mike C? Don't remember.

Dave it sure is. i think it was one of a group of cans that you originally traded for the krueger bock...I do remember when the box came it looked like it was delivered by the usps football team. The rest of the can was just little chips :cry:

Another entry for the hall of shame, I got this speciman thursday from Dayton Digger. He dug this one, along with the one on his shelf in Kentucky. One of those crazy undervalued cans in the book, ($150), I finnally got one on the shelf after 35 years in this hobby.
