I found this but I am unsure if this is the actual can design. Has anyone spotted any of these out in the stores yet?

There was a good reason Bear said they were a great pair...he owned a bunch of stock in those two companies. He owned like 5% of the Coca-Cola Co and something like 20% of Golden Flake. He never became a rich man from his coaching salary, he became a rich man because he was a superb businessman(his coaching salary was instrumental in him having some money to invest).

He was well paid for the time. What's really disappointing about your post is 17,500 dollars from 1958 is roughly equal to 134,000 dollars now!

Coach Bryant was no businessman, but he "acquired" some very good friends who were when he came back. :wink:

That is part of being a good businessman, associating with good ones, not the shoddy ones. Almost all of his investments turned to gold.

As for his low salary, he demanded that he make no more than a tenured professor. After some time at UA, a new thing cropped up, mostly based on Bryant, corporate sponsorships. Today's coaches have Bryant to thank for their lofty salaries. By the end, he was still only being paid the same as the tenured professors, by the university, but was making close to 3/4 million with corporate sponsorships.

5% of Coca-Cola would have made him a multi-millionaire, wouldn't it? Hell, I'm pretty sure even .5 percent would have. And in Bryant's time, too. When would he have bought it, and with what?

Not that Bryant ended up wanting for much of anything, one way or another. But I think this is way overstating his "investments." Just sayin'.

I'd laugh at Auburn for getting all giddy about their "Auburn: Fourth in the SEC West" commemorative potato chip can. But I think once your teams wins the NC, as a fan, you can sit back and enjoy the silly things for a while, at least until NSD and the spring game.

Dude lighten up, you are worried about what a barner would say about our potato chip can? Seriously? I thought Ron Paul folks didnt care what others thought and let them do their thing.

My Sidewalk a-- can't wait to see what the Rings are going to look like.

Coca-Cola wasn't near as huge at that time, as it is today. He did make millions off of it. Not sure about the exact percentage but I recall it was a pretty big chunk. I think they sold it off when Coca-Cola's stock plummeted withe the introduction of New Coke. There were a few ventures that didn't turn a profit for him, otherwise he would have been one of the richest men in the entire region. I read up on this so long ago, that my memory could be a little fuzzy. I just know he made a fortune off of Coca-Cola and Golden Flake. This is primarily why Bryant, Jr is so loaded today.

Not excited what I'd call excited about the tin, but I can't say I won't be picking one up either. Might as well add one to my collection to sit beside the 2009 NC tin.

That coca-cola stock myth is just that. When Coach was at A&M, there were wealthy alumni there that were "looking out" for him. When he was recruited back to Tuscaloosa, one of the commitments made to him was that some of the Alabama "money folks" would take care of him here. (Pritchett, Moody, Morgan, Hinton, Bank, just to name a few Tusc. people plus a bunch of B'ham "friends" and others around the state). About the only involvement Coach had in the business world was his daily stop off at the "watering hole" (Indian Hills C.C.) on the way home to watch the stock mkt channel for about 15 min. in the lounge. I'm sure he owned some stock, but you can bet your a s s that he didn't have anything to do with the why-and-hows of that ownership!...The man was hired to coach football and win championships!.....not worry about money. :wink:
