Collection of vintage beer memorabilia, starting with approximately 1,000 paper/cardboard coasters with beer advertising and logos. In original brown paper vendor's wrap, most are opened, none appear to be used. The circular 3-1/2" diameter coasters feature Knickerbocker Beer, Ruppert Knickerbocker, Ruppiner Dark Beer, Guinness and Pabst Blue Ribbon. The square 3-1/2" diameter coasters feature Ruppert Knickerbocker. There is a 21-1/2" x 12" x 6" metal vendor's stadium carrying case, which shows some rust and use, and has two wood dowels attached to bottom for placing on stairs at stadium. There are two canvas straps attached on either side for carrying, opposite sides have white stenciled "Schaefer" in red letters with multiple logos on each side. There is a Knickerbocker Beer sign measuring 25" x 11" made by Price Bros., reading, "Ruppert Knickerbocker Beer" in stenciled blue and red on letters, plastic on metal frame, backlit with fluorescent bulb and drawstring. On top of frame it reads, "This Sign Is The Property Of Jacob Ruppert, New York, Stock No. 1048" and "Ruppert Knickerbocker Beer And Ruppert Ale, Jacob Ruppert, New York." In EX-MT condition with some wear on metal frame, some scratching on plastic but no cracks. There are four posts for chains to attaching to a wall, three of these have partial chains attached, which show some rust. Finally, there is an 18" diameter vintage Schlitz neon window sign, plastic on metal frame with heavy pull-chain transformer on back bottom. Made by the Universal Electric Sign Co., it features a circular white outer fluorescent tube, yellow neon glass tubing around "Schlitz" and "Pure Trade Mark", further tubing between the sign and frame for backlighting. The sign pictures a globe depicting North and South America with a "Schlitz" banner overlay, in fantastic shape with one small tear on the plastic (left side), takes nothing away from this great sign. Also included is a set of Budweiser salt and pepper shakers, 4" high in original box, which appear to be unused. Additionally, there are two icepicks/scrapers (9-1/2" and 10-1/2"), used by stadium vendors to scrape the frozen ice away from the beers in order to serve them.
