    i CAN'T BE NICE ABOUT THIS NEW EBAY STUPIDITY

    Just noticed this new level of stupidity on Feebay. While doing a category search the message "WE REMOVED SOME SEARCH RESULTS" appeared above the listings. WHAT!!!! How dumb is that???? What would give them the right to eliminate results from a search? This is absolute lunacy. A search...

    GOOD LUCK... BAD LUCK

    Got my 1999 Ford Ranger worked on this week. New rotors, alignment, and a couple of other little things. Cost a bit over $600 and man it drove sweet. Put new plates stickers on it and with over 209,000 miles on it I was looking forward to going on even more adventures in it. Well was heading...

    A FEW BEERS WITH EMBOSSING ON FRONT AND BACK

    I have always admired the talent of the folks that made bottle molds. Think about it. The surface is curved, would have been in reverse and all done by hand! Quite a talent. Here are a few that I photographed a few months ago. Enjoy. LEMP'S ST. LOUIS BEER DENVER, CO C. SCHAAL WEISS BEER...

    PAPER LABEL ON A MILK GLASS BOTTLE

    Not a soda, but a paper beer label on a MILK GLASS bottle. This bottle was made by the Hazel Atlas Glass Company of Zanesville, OH. They called the color PLATONITE WHITE. I have no reason to doubt the authenticity of the label being original to the bottle. The label has a date of 1954 on it...

    BOTTLES CAN CAUSE YOU TO SCRATCH YOUR HEAD.

    Most embossed beers have at least a city embossed on them, but on occasion there is only a product named on the bottle. Here are two such embossed beers that fill the bill. The TIP TOP LAGER is claimed to be from New Orleans by those collectors as they say these are always found around there...

    ROAD TRIP WITH AN ADVERTISING AUCTION THROWN IN

    Last Wednesday on the spur of the moment Jeanie and I decided to attend a live advertising collectibles auction taking place in Tomah, WI. I have always wanted to attend some of these far flung auctions and now that we are retired work no longer gets in the way. We also decided to incorporate...

    I WON A BOTTLE ON AN AUCTION... BUT!!!!!

    I usually don't participate in the large glass auctions, mainly because the items they have are not embossed beer bottles. A recent one did have embossed beers listed and those beers just happened to be from the collection of a late friend of mine Ralph Van Brocklin, so it became extra special...

    Already looking forward to the "GREEN" of Spring.

    It's still Fall, Winter hasn't even started yet, and I am already looking forward to Spring. Bottles of bright colors are sought and treasured by most bottle collectors. Truth is there aren't many breweries that used green embossed beer bottles. Here are a few green PA beer bottles to...

    UNUSUAL DESCRIPTION

    I silver picked a beer bottle off of feebay and ended up having to return it to the seller. In the listing the description said "no chips or cracks". It arrived today and has a burst bubble on it. The seller is taking it back, but they said this is a "NATURAL BURST BUBBLE". What??? Never...

    THIS IS THE PROCESS I USE TO TAKE PHOTOS OF MY EMBOSSED BEER BOTTLES

    Smartphones are very handy, quick, and for certain photos they are more than adequate. I have been using an actual digital camera for over 2 years now and this is my preferred choice for taking a great bottle photo (at least I think they turn out great :cool:). My Canon EOS Rebel has a lot of...

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH A BROKEN BOTTLE... NOTHING AT ALL.

    These are strictly my own opinions and nothing said here is to be taken personally or out of context... but what separates collectors from investors? Lots of things especially when it comes to a broken bottle. Today I share a few of my broken dreams and as a collector I enjoy these as much as...

    WHAT BOTTLE GOT YOU STARTED COLLECTING BOTTLES AND WHY? (first collected bottle)

    Collecting Started In My Youth. As a teen my friends and I collected beer cans. I still have a small collection of these, but no longer actually collect them. Over the next many years I collected beer glasses and soda cans. I still collect pilsener beer glasses but no longer have the soda can...
