Aluminum Bottles As Collectibles (And Investments?)

I am simply amazed at collectors’ interest in aluminum bottles.

Recently, I posted about the new aluminum bottle packaging for Jack Daniels Whiskey which was just launched last month. They are being sold in 4-packs at $9.99. That means each bottle is retailing at about $2.50 each.

I just checked ebay and I found a listing for one (1) Jack Daniels aluminum bottle for $29.99! If you add shipping of $15, the total cost of this bottle is $45.

That’s a 1,099% ROI!  That certainly beats any investment out there, including commodities like gold and silver which are experiencing bull markets these days.

If this guy is able to sell this bottle at that price, these bottles will be flying off the shelves, but for reasons other than drinking 🙂

  1. I found this same bottle, in New York City last year, that is like the one on Ebay and it only cost me a $1.00. After reading your post I went to the same place where I bought it then and they no longer had it. Anyway, if this person is selling it for $29.99 that is like 3000% ROI without shipping. It seems like this person has 4 up now for sale. That is amazing.
