Good stuff I say!... nice to be able to preserve examples from the 60's 70s' 80's
I've never put all my paper labels together....maybe one day I'll do that.

Up until a few years ago I never thought to much about paper label soda bottles. But I had a few sneak into the collection and I found some kind of cool. I posted a Welch's Grape soda on the forum a couple years ago and it had good conversations about bottle date and UPC code intro. I recently picked up a Kist Green Label Ginger Ale (quart) and a 10oz Fanta Orange with paper labels and actually wanted to acquire them. What struck me was that when I first started collecting as a kid in the mid 70's if I found a 50s era Pepsi bottle or even a 60's Pepsi I was thrilled. But those bottles were only 20 yrs old or less. Some of the paper labels I have now are 50-70 yrs old I realize but others are from the 70s and 80s. Meaning they are now 40-50yrs old. Is that an old bottle in today's bottle collector's mind. I dug some out today and took pics. I was surprised at how many I have. I would love to hear what others think.

Some really well-kept paper labels in this thread, the only notable one I have is a Canada Dry product.
