Hi Sammy, I did the majority of my collecting in high school (over a decade ago). I got the majority of my caps by going to the local recycling centers and sort through the aluminum/tin cans and bottles to look for caps. This was possible for a couple of years until the town upgraded to a more sensical container system. I also got caps from friends and family. My parents put collection tins out in their work cafeterias! Good luck with your collection!
There have been different variations of this rumor floating around for well over a decade. The version I've heard is actually even more dramatic: some people claim to have seen a cap that says half of all the facts are fake: http://therealtruth.info/article/12/snapples-real-lies
This simply cannot be true. If so many people have allegedly seen this cap with their own eyes, then why has no high volume collector (say, people with over 5000 caps) ever seen this cap?! I have ultra-rare caps in my collections and have never seen this allegedly "common" one.
So, no, this cap doesn't exist. It's just fun for people on the internet to pretend it does! I haven't been very active with my collection in the past 5 years. I think I'm somewhere over 15,000 now.
Good luck with your collection!
Very cool Sammy! Keep up the great work!
Hi Rock, Please email me at chris AT snapplecaps.com and we can talk about them. I don't have any of the caps personally but two other collectors I know have some. Between us, we don't know much about them! We'd love to hear what you have/know and see if you'd be interested in trading.
Hi Joe, Yes! I would love to trade. I am especially interested in getting the recent WNI caps. Please email me at the email listed on my website (www.swietking.org) under the "Contact" tab.
