Seen this one on ebay. Seems odd the beer can book gives it a high $50 price but it's hard to even get a .99 cent bid on ebay :smt017

I just sold one for $10 on ebay (rusty pit can) but my shipping costs are 1/2 of that seller's. + it took 3 months to sell mine. ... had no idea about the $50 price tag but 90% of all reference book prices are dead wrong.

The one that sold for $430 on June 23 was not nearly as nice of a can. I think this one at $590 was fair. The people who are looking for $2,000 for this can better have something that is absolutely pristine. In today's market, this can is not achieving that price for whatever reason. For anyone who may be interested, I previously posted a picture of the June 23 can. Just scroll up a bit.

Prices on better Michigan cans were grossly inflated for a number of years, but a few key guys got out of the hobby and prices dropped.

I'll have to agree with both you & Marc, The $2k price on this offgrade can was ridiculous to start. And, a lot of Michigan Collectors who once paid big money for cans (sometimes myself included) have now dropped out of the Hobby or slowed down some. Certain people (wont mention any names) paying big money on these Michigan cans in the past grossly overinflated the Michigan can prices from realistic to unrealistic & some times absurd & insane. But I wonder who the new guys are paying $700+ on some of these Pfeiffer Scenic cans. even in the old days they never got that much? I remember around early to mid 2000's when Ted Larsen sold at least 2 mint 1+ white Patrick Henry's on ebay. One one week & the other the next week. Both times they got around $2,000 but they were mint 1+. what would they get nowadays? LEON.

Really, $700+ on Pfeiffer scenes? Were they real clean? Set cans have been popular for a long time, and they are very attractive. You know how it goes with collectibles - good stuff gets better over time, and mundane stuff gets more mundane.

Well, those were on the 3 of the toughest out of the set which always got more. But some of the more common ones that I said were $100-$150 cans & some others said more like $50 cans have gotten like $400 on ebay which is insane.


P.S. Link to old Pfeiffer post.

Yeah, eBay has been bonkers for the past few years. Half the stuff I put on my watch list shoots past my limit with days left to go, and I'm not talking about rare cans or real high grade stuff.

I paid around $1,370.00 for mine back in September 2018.
It’s a Dave Stark can.
I thought it was a fair price at the time, the $2,000 + price tags always seemed a little high to me.

While looking through Ebay offerings, I came upon this notice regarding returns. I'm guessing DNA is the next alternative for can identification. :shock:

"We mark all our items and you must send back our item with its mark on it, for a refund. We DO NOT do partial refunds. Please do not wipe item clean before you are happy, my thumb print has to be on the item for its refund."

I do not think it is a common problem but I have heard of sellers before who ran into a problem with a buyer and received a can back that was different than the one they sent. This seller probably got burned and it now taking steps to try to prevent it happening again. That's one advantage of going to a local show. The transaction is completed face to face. Unfortunately, attending a local show is not an option for everyone.
