Selling Beer Cans
The beer can selling universe can be divided into two main groups: online selling and offline selling.
Selling Beer Cans Off-line
A substantial percentage of quality antique beer cans get sold at venues other than the internet, mostly at beer can trade shows or by telephone. The Brewery Collectibles Club of America does an outstanding job of organizing tradeshows for beer can collectors. Dozens, and even hundreds, of buyers and sellers get together at these shows. A calendar of these tradeshows soon will be posted on Breweriana.com.
Selling Beer Cans On-line
There are many web sites dedicated to beer cans that have owners eager to buy beer cans. Most of these web sites claim to pay more than anyone else for beer cans but simple logic dictates that only one of these many cliams can be true. Other web sites claim to be owned by neutral collectors or to be for reference purposes but these sites also may be interested in buying cans for resale. If the seller of the can is unaware of its value, selling in such an environment can be risky.
Ebay is another on-line option but sellers are left to the mercy of the buyers who show up the week of their auction and can be undermined by collusion among bidders. More often than not, beer cans bring far less than fair market value on ebay.
