Baseball Beer History

Check out the new edition of Collector’s Corner at the Timber Rattlers website.

From 1978 to 1981, the Point Brewery had a different design each year in the Foxes red, white, and blue color scheme.  They also had alternate color schemes in 1978 and ’79.  There were brown and yellow cans in both years, as well as a green and orange can in 1978.  So in total, there are seven different cans.  Not sure the reasoning behind the alternate color options, not very attractive if you ask me, but the red, white, and blue ones are pretty cool.  Although the cans are not that valuable (they can be found for well under $5 typically), they do make a nice display and conversation piece. 

The best can on there is the one from 1980…with the Foxes mascot…As Jay says: Nothing sells beer like a kids mascot on the can.

That mascot’s name? Run. Homer Run.
