Treasure Hunt: October 16th, 2014

Dear Donna,

Can you tell me if any of these would have a collectible market today? They are from the 1990s. Any information would be helpful.

Paul from Concord
 
 
Dear Paul,
 
Wow, what a collection. I have to say, I didn’t even know people did collect these. I would be curious to see how you displayed them.
 
I am not 100 percent sure of how to market them as they are not old enough to be in my market. But you are right, they are considered collectible even though they are more recent. I did some research for you and found out that prices on them depend on condition, name, brewery, etc. are in the $10-$40 range each. So you do have something for this market.
 
The ones I found in the high range were unusual and from short-term makers, ones of odd shapes, and then the most common but popular ones such as Budweiser. I think  your market may be an online one in order to find the right buyers, or possibly a consignment store where they will also get a lot of exposure.  
 
This was fun for me to check into for you. I learn something new every day.
