super rare mexican bottle cap gets, sales & auctions ! ! ! [part 1]

HELLO!!! Recently I won a couple auctions featuring some rare Mirinda bottle caps!  They apparently came from Pepsi and/or Fanta soda bottles in Mexico, and they feature 1st gen Pokemon!  I've only seen them here and there over the years on the community, but this is the first time I've seen a massive abundance of them!  I figured I'd share this awesome bottle cap goodness with the community!! :]

Since I'm always on the lookout for awesome, quirky merchandise of my beloved Ekans, Arbok, and Weepinbell, I had to snag up these bottle caps when I had the chance.  Check out the cool guys below!!

These plastic bottle caps are roughly 1.25 inches with a neato picture on the top, featuring the Pokemon!!  The piece on top featuring the Pokemon art is made of thin metal.

The first lot I obtained consisted of 175 bottle caps with normal, default poses of the Pokemon [pictured in the top row]
The second lot contained 169 bottle caps with attack poses of the Pokemon!! [pictured in the bottom row]. I actually like these poses a lot better!  They're more dynamic and interesting in my opinion, but I still love the normal posed Pokemon pictured in the top row!!

The poses actually look a lot similar to another set of Mirinda bottle caps, the ones that were produced in Thailand.  Here's the comparison below:

The Thai bottle caps are pictured in the bottom row.  The only one that looks different is Ekans!!!  How awesome.  I think I like the Mexican bottle cap better than the Thai one [although I feel quite sorry for that poor Omanyte in that picture, haha]

Out of a total of 344 bottle caps, these are the caps I'm going to keep for my own personal collection, as well as gifts for my other Pokemon friends.  Which means the rest of the bottle caps I'm going to sell or auction off!!! :D

Here's a gander at the rest of the cool bottle caps!  There's almost the complete 151!  There were a lot of doubles of some of the caps, but I think collectively there are only a few Pokemon missing, like Wartortle, Butterfree, Paras, etc.  Still though, that's A LOT of soda, holy potatoes.


Here's a sneak peak at the bottle caps with the attack poses!!!

For now, I'm only selling/auctioning off the first lot of bottle caps featuring the normal poses.  Since there are a lot of the same Pokemon featured in the normal and attack posed bottle caps, and I didn't want to confuse anyone, I'm going to sell the attack posed Pokemon in another post.  So for now, only the normal posed bottle caps!!!!
