I read a few earlier posts on CW, where Daddy nobucks usually checks eBay one last time before hitting his head on the pillow and dreaming of his next big kill, I mean score on eBay.
Well, earlier this week I did the same thing and saw two beautiful 1938 brochures being listed on eBay with BIN prices. So I "pulled the trigger."
These beauties are in near mint condition and filled with pages of color vending machine and cooler illustrations, intended for placement in factories and businesses. There also a ton of great black & white photos.
Most know that I collect vintage Coca-Cola paper items and it never ceases to amaze me, how much early ephemera (that's paper, for you collectors from Alabama. I kid!) is still out there. While I own probably over 1,000 vintage Coca-Cola paper items, I am still finding unique and different items, like these two, that I didn't have. It's also amazing how many items out there are not in Petretti's price guides. But I guess his books would be 2,000 pages or more.
