Coke Is It!

So I went to a card show last weekend and why did I spend $4.00 on two beat up Coke bottle tops?  


Because back in 1965, Coke bottling companies got the bright idea to include football players pictures underneath the pop tops.  Packer fans and collectors would keep buying Coke after Coke until they had all their favorite players.  

Under my two tops are Packer greats Willie Davis and Jim Ringo.  Between the two of them they played in 15 Pro Bowls and were the member of five championship teams.

Save these! In the post-apocalyptic world, caps are currency.
