Please allow me to indroduce myself. My name is Jeff Lebo. I have been a beer can collector since the age of fourteen. I am a member of the Brewery Collectibles Club of America (BCCA), where I served on the national board of directors in 2001-2002. I am also a member of the East Coast Breweriana Association (ECBA). I am currently the co-chairman of the Spring Thaw Brewery Collectibles Show, which takes place every March near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. I am also a member of the One Can/One Country (OC/OC) Chapter of the BCCA. If you have beer cans that you wish to sell, please email me at email@example.com or call 717-938-4332.
One of my favorite aspects of this hobby is meeting other collectors and making new friends. I have been fortunate in getting to know hundreds of people because of this hobby - people that I never would have had the opportunity to meet otherwise. I have visited fellow collectors all over America and Canada, as well as in England, Scotland, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, The Netherlands and New Zealand. I am always happy to welcome other collector friends to my home also. We have had guests from as far away as Italy and South Africa.
Because I have collected minor variations of every type of beer can from all over the world, the collection has grown by leaps and bounds. For years, I had no place to display the cans. Most of the collection was stored in boxes; in my basement, in closets, in my attic, in my parents' attic... Finally, in 1998, I was able, with the help of my father, to construct a special building to house the collection. The collection now numbers in excess of 83,000 different cans, making it the largest collection of it's kind in the world.
Over the years, I have purchased many collections in order to add new variations and upgrades to my own collection. As a result of this, I have thousands of extra cans,("doubles"), which are available for trade or sale.
I am first and foremost a collector. I created this site in order to advance my own collection as well as to make cans available to other collectors.
The goals of this website are:
1. To provide collectors with a convenient, inexpensive way of adding quality cans to their collections.
2. To serve the needs of people who want to sell their beer cans.
3. To attract collectors who have quality cans and are interested in selling or trading.
