Coca Cola Memorabilia
Managed By: Icon Here Coke Collectors
Description:
Memorabilia - (from Latin, for memorable) is an object that is treasured for its memories. This category is to find all those Coca Cola items that are "memorable". Collectible items that are on display are what we are looking for. Old Ghost Coca Cola Signs would be acceptable. Be sure that your Coca Cola item is displayed to the public, at all times. If you can, note the name of the building/business if your submission is a sign.
Expanded Description:

Coca Cola advertising has chronicled our times and events for more than a century. Favorite Coca Cola images have appeared on thousands of products over the years. Products with the Coca Cola logo have become favorite antiques and collectibles for nostalgia collectors. These classic memorabilia pieces run the gambit from original signs to rare pins; signed artwork to retro trays of the past. We've even seen display windows from old drug stores done in this memorabilia. In May, 1886, Coca Cola was invented by Doctor John Pemberton a pharmacist from Atlanta, Georgia. John Pemberton concocted the Coca Cola formula in a three legged brass kettle in his backyard. 

 

 

 

Some little known facts about Coca Cola: 

 

 

The soft drink was first sold to the public at the soda fountain in Jacob's Pharmacy in Atlanta on May 8, 1886. 

Only nine servings of the soft drink were sold each day.

Sales for that first year added up to a total of about $50.

Until 1905, the soft drink, marketed as a tonic, contained extracts of cocaine as well as the caffeine-rich kola nut.

 

 

 

 In 1887, another Atlanta pharmacist and businessman, Asa Candler bought the formula for Coca Cola from inventor John Pemberton for $2,300. By the late 1890s, Coca Cola was one of America's most popular fountain drinks, largely due to Candler's aggressive marketing of the product. With Asa Candler, now at the helm, the Coca Cola Company increased syrup sales by over 4000% between 1890 and 1900. The television ad "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke" was released first in Europe, where it garnered only a tepid response. It was then released in the U.S. in July, 1971, and the response was immediate and dramatic. By November of that year, Coca-Cola and its bottlers had received more than a hundred thousand letters about the ad. At that time the demand for the song was so great that many people were calling radio stations and asking them to play the commercial. "I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke" has had a lasting connection with the viewing public. Advertising surveys consistently identify it as one of the best commercials of all time, and the sheet music continues to sell more than thirty years after the song was written.
