Collectibles: Coca-Cola Nostalgia Is The Real Thing

by Daniel Wright

The Coca-Cola Company has created some of the classic commercials that chronicle life in the United States. This legacy has allowed the company to attract top artists to work on their advertisements, including Normal Rockwell and Jim Harrison. This resulted in some of the most appealing ads ever created.

Throughout the years, famous artists have created iconic Coca-Cola images that capture our way of life. In the 1930s, old Coca-Cola ads were on the back covers of National Geographic magazine 7 months a year (they would appear each February, April, June, July, August, October and December). The December images are the most cherished, featuring Haddon Sundblom's images of Santa. These beautiful art images are popular for framing. Each beautiful vintage ad is available in a lovely 8x10 inch silver frame to perfectly capture the image. The condition of each vintage ad reflects the age of the magazine in which it appeared.

Vintage magazine advertisements chronicle our way of life,capturing home, work and even war. For example, old National Geographic covers make great wall art or can be displayed on a desk. Framing them as a gift is a special way to give something that stands out in a room's decor and has a unique character.

There is an large and active market for unique, vintage Coca Cola collectibles. Those interested in collecting items related to the Coke brand will be drawn to the many collectibles with the Coca Cola logo such as lamps, clocks, trays, vending machines, glasses, dishes, furniture, coolers, and even wallpaper with the Coke logo. These collectibles date back as far as the 1880s when Coke was first formulated.

One of the most popular aspects of this niche are the promotional toys the company made over the years. People of all ages treasure Coca-Cola toys. There are collectibles such as board games, jigsaw puzzles, toy banks, scrapbooks and similar materials, trucks, teddy bears including the newer Boyd's bears, and of course Coca-Cola bottles (even in miniature size).

If you know someone who collects Coca Cola products, these items will make great gifts for any occasion.
