My eyes went straight to the Howard Johnson can in the first pic. I'm a sucker for Howard Johnson cans and there's only one in my collection so far. I also noticed several others I didn't have. I immediately started counting the cans to estimate how many there might be. An offer for all of them had to be made. $15-$20 was coming to mind when I got another text that said they had just bought them all for me, two large trash bags worth. The seller took $10! Wow! How did I get such a great deal while sitting in the middle of a field not doing a thing?
They dropped the cans off later this afternoon where we took them all out to see what "treasures" I got. There were about a dozen beer cans in the lot which I let them take to try to sell. That left me with 195 steel soda cans to clean up and sort out.

There are quite a few of them already in my collection, but there are a lot that I know I don't have. So I can't wait to dig in to see exactly what's there. And I'm sure there will be a few upcoming posts about some of these cans.

So why was the seller so eager to get rid of them? He said he's been selling them on eBay for $10+ each but he's headed on a mission trip soon and needs to quickly get rid of some of his belongings. The right place at the right time...
