MEET Jeff Lebo – he’s a beer can obsessive.
The American has more than 80,000 of them cluttering up his Pennsylvania home – and now he’s coming to Sheffield in search of rare British tins.
The 49-year-old is touring the UK in a bid to trace cans from 1936 - 1965, and he’s pencilled in South Yorkshire for April 9.
“My hope is that by putting the word out that I am looking for these kinds of items, anyone in Sheffield who may have them, or is interested in them, will contact me and I’ll be able to visit them,” he says.
Anyone interested in talking tins should email firstname.lastname@example.org
