    As far as I can tell, MTN has a limited edition artist series that they put out every so often. Personally, I'm not that into most of the artwork and the fact that its designed to be collectable (when has a collectable ever been worth anything?), but I can respect someone who put in the effort to get a complete collection. That particular can is one of the nicer designs, in my opinion.

    I'm much more interested in the old 90's-early 2000's Hardcore cans that said "MONTANA" rather than "MTNMTN", with the old Barcelona address, or the white, knock off cans made by Dupli, which is now German Montana. The few cans I did save I stupidly ruined by converting into pencil and brush holders. A pristine can has to be very rare nowadays, especially in North America.

    As far as their value, who knows? They're worth whatever someone is willing to pay, like any other collectable. The high value of certain Krylon, Rusto, etc colors is mainly driven by the fact that the cans were never intended to be collected, so some colors are extremely rare and/or desirable. I'm not sure how the multitude of graffiti-focused artist series cans will fare, given that every one made is likely tucked away, and whoever wants them probably buys them upon release. Its hard to say, but typically items designed to be hoarded as collectibles rarely appreciate in value much.

    There was only one release of these cans. Currently we have some of these, but they are not that easy to find.

    Cool. Well I'll count myself lucky to have found it then.

    Welcome back, Slyle. I was actually just looking at your flickr.

    I had a decent haul this weekend, I'll try to get pics up this week. A few labels I'd never seen before. 50s-70s stuff.

    Never really left, just been spending alot of our time focusing on our various projects. Not to mention 12oz has been a bit of a mess lately, but it seems like they have all the bugs worked out. Juca lets see what you got, time to get this thread jumping again...

    Agreed. A great feel.

    My only qualm would be on the pick your color part--with all the great names of colors on the labels why simply have "red" or "green"

    Which now I'm reminded of the red-green show...

    I used to love watching that show .

    Here are some of mine, though these photos are at least 10 years old now. I have them in a box somewhere in storage, I need to look for them. I never had too much luck finding old cans, I picked most of these up at garage sales.
