My Collection

Hi, Bill Helmbold the beer can collector and BCCA member #13,302 here! 

I think I was born with a gene that predisposed me to be a can collector, but I resisted the urge until September 1976.  At that time my Aunt Mabel brought home a pair of unusual beer cans that she had found while cleaning a college dorm room at Wilkes College in my home town of Wilkes-Barre, PA.  Those cans were a Bergheim and a Big Cat Malt Liquor.   I tried to resist the temptation, but I couldn't.  My collection was started, and I've been collecting beer cans ever since.

At the present time my primary collecting priority is my crowntainer collection, which currently consists of 307 cans.  I also collect Pennsylvania cans, and I will occasionally add a nice flat top to the collection.  I also have about 1,000 other cans that don't fit any of the above categories.

As a result of my 40 years of collecting I have accumulated quite a few extra cans.  My hope is that through this web site I can find a new home for some of the excess cans that I have accumulated, and maybe add a few more cans to my own collection.
