    CANvention'

    Beer can enthusiasts head to New Mexico for 'CANvention'

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Hundreds of beer can collectors are heading to New Mexico for a "CANvention."The Albuquerque Journal reports the Brewery Collectibles Club of America is scheduled Thursday to start celebrating different types of beer cans at its three-day national gathering at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

    The club says the event attracts collectors from around the world who trade, buy and sell vintage and craft beer cans. It is a chance for those attending to sample beer from local Albuquerque brewers.

    The gathering began in 1969 after collector Denver Wright, Jr. put an ad in a St. Louis newspaper asking anyone who collected beer cans to contact him.
    Six collectors responded and they held an event in Denver months later.

    Jeff, bet there will be some valuable cans at the show. It reminded me of the time in the 70s when I was helping a friend clean-out his parents basement and I found an old cone top beer can. My college roommate's Dad collected cans so I asked if I could have it. My friend agreed so I gave it to my roommate's Dad and his eyes almost popped out of his head.

    He looked up the can in his books and stated that it was worth about $35 then and was his most valuable can.. I was glad I was able to get it for him.

    Here's a pic of a cone top beer can for those that haven't seen one...

    Unfortunately all Mine came from deep in Lake Mud.
    When First Pulled out they Were Sell-able.
    But after 18-19 years

    I Was told the Kaier's is the Rare one.
    It is possible, As I Couldn't find a Pic online.

    Though Not a Cone, Or Beer.
    & I Don't like the Taste,

    I Think the Politically incorrect Hillbilly Mountain Dew Can is my Favorite.
    So I'm adding it here Just Because
