Searching for a member from Grand Rapids, MI area

#1

Post by Lieutelant » Tue Mar 14, 2017 5:47 pm

Hello all. I am new to this forum-and this hobby, really. I collect Mountain Dew cans and bottles.

I'm searching for a specific member I met a few days ago. I did not get his name, but he mentioned being a member of this site. Here is what I know:
We were both waiting to get into an estate sale, to look at cans available. The estate sale was last Friday (March 10th), in Grand Rapids MI. I was looking for some Mountain Dew cans, he was there to look at beer cans. He left before he could get into the sale, because he was headed for Toledo and didn't want to wait anymore. I believe he said he was married. I hesitate to guess an age, but between 30-50. I think he said he used to have thousands of cans, but not as many anymore.

Not sure if that's enough info to locate him. The reason I'm searching for him is because I grabbed some of the beer cans that were available at the sale, and thought I'd offer them to him if they were what he was looking for.

If any of this sounds familiar to you, please respond! Thanks!

Thanks! Since I mostly focus on just the Mountain Dew cans, I don't expect to have much to say around here. But I'll definitely keep you guys in mind if I ever happen across any more beer cans-I might even go digging to see what I can find for you! ;)

I live in Grand Rapids (actually Hudsonville) and otherwise fit the description but I did not go to any estate sales just prior to heading to Toledo. However, I was not the only collector from Grand Rapids at the Toledo show. I will contact the other one.

Welcome to the Rusty Bunch. This site mostly focus on beer related collectibles but some people on this site collect pop cans and related collectibles too.
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

I was actually just browsing through that. Seems like most of the members are interested in older stuff than what I collect, but it's still fun to look around.

Lieutelant, the person you talked to is Jack. I just texted him and he is working one of his long shifts right now. He will contact you via this site later tonight.
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.
