    Just curious, what beverage items, if any do you collect?
    I collect Dr Pepper stuff that I can afford, cans and bottles of Dr Pepper imitations and everything to do with Dr Pepper racing.

    I collect cans and bottles that are different or one's i like and find interesting. I'm not really looking to get my hands on every single bottle i can, but I enjoy collecting. My collection is pretty small at the moment (just 324 bottles/cans right now). As far as other things, not really. I have a couple of nostalgic signs too (Red Rock and Nehi)(also a 3 stooges one). That's about it for now. I also have an odd obsession with taking new quartes out of circulation(I also have around 200 or 300 of those).

    I collect bottle caps! I collect crown caps (the type you pry off). I have over 4,300,000 caps from over 165 countries and territories (some places that no longer exist).

    Pry'em off and save them for me; I'll surely appreciate it.

    And by the way, this is a major incentive for me to dislike cans and plastic!!!! How do you think I got into the bev biz anyway?!?

    It seems like all I collect are aches and pains! I used to work for a local Coke bottler and have some items from the past. I like the original stuff vs. the new "nostalgic" items. I once had to clean out an old building we were selling and found Coca-Cola 6' metal signs (still in the box with wax paper between them). I have been told that they are from the 40's as they have yellow in the color scheme. I also have a few of the 6.5oz coca-cola bottles with mix-matched crowns on them (Schlitz, Bud and one with Pepsi!) and a few of the Tab curvy figure bottles.

    I collect anything related to Mr. PiBB such as POS advertising, stickers, bottles, cans, t-shirts, caps, vending inserts, toys, clocks, signs, etc. Also collect Mello Yello items.

    Hey dr pepperman, what Dr Pepper imitations do you have? I have about 32 different ones mostly in cans.

    Hey Pibb_thug,
    I still have my Mr. Pibb "Oscar" style trophy holding a star (and the silver dollar that goes with it) that was awarded to sales reps during one of the "re-launches" back in the 80's. Wonder what it would go for on e-bay?
