Bicentennial 7UP Cans
In 1976, to commemorate the The US Bicentennial, 7UP released a collection of pop cans that gloriously represented the nation (when the entire collection was setup properly). Luckily, alt.culture.us.1970s member, Brent Popham, drank a LOT of 7UP back then :-) Enjoy his great pictures of this once-in-a-lifetime collection!
