This is for sale on eBay today, as someone has made a nice wall hanging from some labels, caps and the end of a beer case. It could be yours…”
Here are the comments from the post:
Mike Seibel I think a lot of these beer cases were used to store albums back when people still bought albums.
Mark W Rummel Yep, Mike. And I still have two with drum sticks and stuff from our oldies band days. (Wish I had taken better care of them.)
John Schneider bet those sticks are hickory and are either 16 or 16-1/2″ long….0.551 or 0.580″ dia…… just resting nicely in that beer box……well, that’s how i picture it mark
Mark W Rummel Yep, John, you’re right! Hickory and 16s…
Angela Neuman Moloney Back in the day these were our camping suitcases! Mine was covered in pink stickers. Kinda wish I still had it!
Scott M. Thede I remember going to our grandparents cabin in Curran and the back of the Suburban would be packed tight with case after case filled with clothes, food, and anything else needed for the excursion. All of the kids were allowed one case for clothes. Orange POM and yellow Club boxes were plentiful as I was growing up for storing all kinds of items.
Thank you to Mark W. Rummel for posting the photo and all of those who took the time to comment in Facebook.
