Pennsylvania native Jeff Lebo has been collecting beercans since he was a child. His father, who worked at American Can Company, brought cans home for him to collect together. Since then, he has collected over 100,000 cans from across the world, and he believes his collection is worth two to three million dollars. On this episode of The Vault, Jeff took inside his house, built for his collection, and shared some of his favorite cans.
The Guinness Book of World Records recognizes William B. Christensen as having the largest collection with over 75,000 cans. They are currently awaiting evidence to review Lebo’s collection. The Brewery Collectibles Club of America recognizes Jeff Lebo as having the largest collection in the world with over 100,000 cans. Lebo told Forbes he is open to having his collection counted to be included in the Guinness Book Of World Records.
