pricing help....

#1

Post by jinsequa » Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:54 pm

Ran into this Schlitz cone at a rummage sale with a few other flats. What is it worth? The guy wants me to make him an offer and won't give me a base price. This was the only can I wasn't sure of what to offer. Any help on this would be appreciated. I don't collect Schlitz so I would be reselling this can so that should figure into its value. Is the book price even close these days?

That looks like a really clean example.

USBC price for that is $135.00

I've seen those sell from anywhere between $200.00 to $400.00 when they are clean like that.

I would show him the book if possible and start from the $135.00 book value.

I sold mine for $395 or $495 not long ago, it's was only slightly better & mint 1+. I had 3 different ones so can't remember which ones got what. Maybe offer $200 & should get $300 or more easy. LEON.

P.S. Yours has no Alcohol % statement. not sure if thats a tougher variation or not?

FWIW, I would buy that can from you, for $280 PayPal Friends and Family. No ebay fees etc.

If you want a quick turn around, offer less and flip it to me. Just saying!! :smile:

That can is only dirty. That will clean up like a new penny. Since it's just a rummage sale, offer him a $100 for it and see his reaction. Have at least another $100 on you if you need to go higher to land the can. Like it was previously stated, have the book with you so it shows that it's not some holy grail can. You really shouldn't have to pay full market value(or anything near that) for a can of this nature coming from a rummage sale, unless it's some crazy label that you've been waiting forever to land. Good Luck!!!! That's gonna be a great example of one of the early classics!!!! Woody :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile: :smile:

Not that tough but those Schlitz low pros always do pretty well on ebay when clean like that, I would agree getting it for anything under $200 and you should turn a nice profit.

Sort of off topic but for Conehead or others who would know how tough are the concave bottom Schlitz Lagers? I don't think I have ever seen one available, USBC doesn't seem to think it is any tougher than this Vitamin D.

Yes, Schlitz Lager concave bottom are much tougher than the Vitamin D's. The USBC doesn't give them much love. When you do see them, they are usually in off grade/dumper condition.

I would offer something that is commensurate with what ever other cans you are buying. If the “other” cans are tabs for example I would offer around $100. If the “other cans” are nice cones and flats too you will have to come much stronger. The guy obviously doesn’t know what it is worth and wants you to basically bid yourself up. It is at a rummage sale so NOBODY pays more than a few pennies on the dollar for ANYTHING.

Flip side is: Don’t get too cute to where you screw the whole deal up...lol
