Here's my beer can collection.
Some people like collecting full cans, I like to empty them first. Actually, that's not my living room, but it is somebodys who's probably not married!!
The first thing that I collected was baseball cards. In third grade my buddies mom worked with my mom, and her one son was killed in Nam. Well she gave my mom his doubles that he kept. Yogi Berra, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, etc. All the cards were hall of famers. Too bad someone stole them.
All the cards were from the fifties.
Then I collected coins and old bills. I had every one of those coin books filled up to 1973, which was the year at that time. I had proof sets from the fifties up and bills dating back to the late 1800's. Too bad someone stole those too.
The I bumped into a Coke machine (to big for a thief to put in their pocket) and a year or two later, 1985, I picked up my first Coke coin op machine, the VMC 72. A few years later I won (actually, the wife won.....that's why I married her) a Wurlitzer jukebox from a local oldies radio station.
My life was complete
until ten years later a co-worker gave me a shuffle alley. Once I finished school and figured out a little about electric, I fixed that one and bought more and more EM games. I now have a ball bowler, shuffle alley, baseball machine, pinball machine, console slots, jukebox, popcorn machines , candy machines, gum machines, nut machines, cigarette machine, cigar machine, pachinkos, racing game, shooting gallery, motion beer signs, and a few more Coke machines.
And I believe that I'm not done collecting!! There's still room somewhere???
