Pennsylvania native Jeff Lebo has been collecting beer cans since he was a child. His father, who worked at American Can Company, brought cans home for him to collect together. Since then, he has collected over 100,000 cans from across the world, and he believes his collection is worth two to three million dollars. On this episode of The Vault, Jeff took us inside his house, built for his collection, and shared some of his favorite cans.
