Gonna steer away from my usual 7up stuff and post a new one I just recently got. I collect Teem, a Pepsi product. Pepsi put out Teem in 1960, a lemon lime drink. Discontinued in the US in 1984 but still available in a few other countries. This particular 12 oz embossed bottle seems to be very hard to find. It is from 1965. I have the Ayers Pepsi guide books from back in 2001 and it lists this bottle for 250.00$! Strange how prices can go up and down because I only paid 22$ for it. But kinda nice knowing that maybe at some point in time it was worth a lot. I collect Teem bottles and have a good collection of them.

I am not the greatest when it comes to taking pics of embossed bottles.

Here are more of my Teem collection.

32 oz 'sailboat' logo. 2nd one hard to find smooth glass. 78 & 81.

Nice collection of Teem bottles you have there iggy. I had a few Teems in my collection years ago before I downsized, but I know I did not have any smooth glass versions. Thanks for sharing!.

here is a picture of the Teem can I found a couple of years ago , thinking its 70's era ? never bothered to try and clean it off and its sat in the garage with some other cans I've found

French side is mostly coloured still , mix of green , yellow and white , English side is dirtier and maybe I should try and clean it .

RCO, too bad that can is in rough shape. At least one side is good. I agree with the 70's as they switched to the 'sailboat' logo later on. Those 7 oz ones are good also. Their are still different variations of Teem bottles I still do not have so I always keep a look out. Thanx for showin and thanx Jblaylock & bottle-bud!

Very nice collection! That's not a brand I see often. That smooth one with the neck ACL is very weird, never seen any ACL like that before that I can remember. Do you think it was supposed to have a paper label as well? Seems like a very weird label placement on such a plain bottle otherwise.
Also RCO I quite like that can, I'm a sucker for 70s graphic design! I'd definitely clean that one up if it was mine.
