Vintage Budweiser collectibles and memorabilia are promotional items that were produced by the American lager manufacturer, Budweiser.

History & Description

Budweiser was founded Adolphus Busch, who left Germany and immigrated to the United States in 1857. Busch quickly settled in St. Louis, Missouri, where he set up his own brewing house and eventually married a woman named Lilly Anhueser.

In 1864, Busch partnered with his father-in-law, Eberhard Anhueser – who also owned a small lager-yielding brewery – to form the Anhueser-Busch Company.

The brand name Budweiser was introduced in 1876.

Guide for collectors

Vintage Budweiser memorabilia and collectibles increase in value depending on the item’s age and condition. In addition, item’s that can be dated and feature either the Budweiser or Anheuser-Busch logos will also increase in value and will be worth significantly more at auction compared to recently produced souvenir items.

Collectors should look out for vintage Budweiser (or Anhueser-Busch) signs as these command some of the highest prices at auction or internet bidding sites. One of the most sought after examples of Budweiser memorabilia is the lighted Budweiser Clydesdale signs. Created in small numbers in the 1950s, these items are a rare find and are extremely desirable to collectors.

While vintage Budweiser memorabilia and collectibles are frequently advertised on eBay, items that realise the highest prices are typically sold through both national and international auctioneers.

On November 5th 2005 at Stout Auctions in West Middlesex, Pennsylvania, a vintage Marklin-gauge 1 Anhueser-Busch boxcar toy realised a price of $8,400.

I have a deck of Spanish American war playing cards. Looks like they were made in 1900. Complete set, original box. It has the original envelope that Budweiser sent out, plus (2) 2 cent stamps and (1) 1 cent stamp. On one of the promotional cards in the set, it says if you send .25 cents in to Budweiser, they would send you a deck of these cards. They are in amazing shape, practically brand new looking. There is also the guys complete name and address on this envelope. I don't know what the valu
