I'd like to start collecting a variety of ACL sodas with pin-up models or something of the similar nature.

Can you folks point me in the right direction with brands and examples that are out there?

All I know so far is old Cleo-Colas with Cleopatra on it, and an old Jigger soda..

I'd really appreciate getting a list together of all the ACL sodas that fit into this category.

Thanks !

Got $$$$$$$$$$? There's a lot of out there................

Big Sandy Maid >> Sassy
Birthday Smiles
Catawissa Snappy
City Bottlong Works Waseca
Country Maide....................................... Wible

There is a large number of collectors that do the 'Lady' thing, hence a lot of them go high.

TD and Matt can tell you a lot more than I can.

I wish my collection had MANY more in it, but seriously, right now bidding is really aggressive. I've chosen to sit it out a while until it cools off a little. You can still come across some good deals at better bottle shows, but Ebay is crazy right now.

Here are a few from recently- I actually thought that even with the condition issues, the SWEET SUE was a pretty good buy. I have never seen or heard of this bottle before.

Thanks TD and Treasurekid for the info



Hey fishnuts .. . thats a nice list.. I have some work to do.. . I'm moving on to these types of ACLs because I want some variety in my collection. I started with collecting rare/uncommon straight sided cokes about 8-10 month ago but have already almost completed my collection about 60 bottles still looking for about 10-15 but This is a nice change..

I WOULD love to see some of your collection if you don't mind . .. .


I just snagged these to start my collection yesterday..

Jarvis...
You get a master list, you better share with me, too.
I'm always thinking that i have, or know about, all of the 'babe' bottles, but.
No. I seem to always discover one previously unknown.

Add Rosentreater's and Indiana Club if you will include dance partners in the pic with the gals.

I'll take some photos of my photos and post later. 10-4.
Got any SS Cokes from Arkansas...i have 'babe' bottles to trade...lol...better than $$ for some collectors.

I just searched the entire list on ebay and only came up with a faded Click bottle and one other I need to buy when the auction ends ... I indeed have some work cut out


I hear ya... same with the dang cokes .. I just scored one I never thought existed for cheap.. Lincoln, Neb. I got lucky..


Yea... for sure I'll work with you .. I have many times helped fellow folks on this forum with directing them to desired bottles . .I check ebay every day and have many obscure methods of doing searches. The best deals always are listed in an odd manner or improper use of keywords.

Yea.. I have a Helena, Ark amber straight arrow coke but it has some case wear and a small chip on the base.. It still displays fine though..
