That was a great Craigslist find! The Jax can has skyrocketed in value over the last few years.

Bought 3 different sets of Carling Black Label collections over the last month and received all 3 within the last week or so. One came from Australia, one from England and one from the Netherlands. Out of the three collections, I obtained 70 new cans for the shelf. Not often that I add that many new cans over such a short period of time!

Typically from ebay and follow up emails to the sellers to see what else they had and what kind of deals they wanted to make. It is actually amazing how many cans I get from ebay sellers through follow up emails to sellers I have bought from.....
It was just pure chance that all three auctions came up in the last month.
"Klassnines" from the Netherlands always has quality foreign sets of cans for sale on ebay and his website. He is THE man for foreign cans online.
After a couple of initial purchases, the guy from Australia let me cherry pick his auctions/Black label cans for any cans I wanted "since he found my name in the BCCA roster". He actually had several more that I did not have but the condition was pretty poor so I passed on those.
The guy from England started with a purchase of one can and follow up emails established even more that I wanted.
I always look to see what else a seller has for sale and often times make deals with them for more cans....
It never hurts to ask.

Some Energy and Chocolates for a side collection. Also Not seeing the Slenderways in the book. Any thought on rarity? I don’t think I have ever seen them on eBay before.

On Wednesday, I received a can for my CANvention cans collection. The 1973 John Paul yellow conetop. It will rotate after you click on it.

So now, does anyone have a blue 1973 conetop (see 2nd pic)? Or any other color than black, yellow, or blue?

Happy Thanksgiving.

Bill, The paper labels are glued to the cans, not taped. So I do not intend on checking what is underneath.

From the yellow cone picture above, you can see the blue color near the seam. Both cones have a flat bottom and are probably not beer or soda cans.

The blue 12 oz does not give up any clues.

The black 12 oz has on the top, Busch and Please Don't Litter. You can see white to the bottom with blue at the seam.

The yellow 12 oz has yellow near the top with silver stars about 1/8" down.

I'm sure all the cans were common in 1973.

Recently acquired cans. All but the Red Fox (withdrawn free), Schmidt’s quart & Tennent’s FT were acquired via some good old ‘cashless’ trading with RBers.

Great group of cans. They look good together too. :smt023

Nothing like a solid trade. Congratulations!
