Do you know the difference between authentic Pepsi memorabilia, reproduced items, and fantasy items? Knowing the difference could save you money. Authentic items are, or were made by or under the authorization of the Pepsi Cola Company. Reproductions are made by others and are copies of authentic items made to fool buyers. Fantasy items use the Pepsi Cola name and my include actual Pepsi logos and advertising slogans, but were not part of Pepsi promotions - in others words, someone made them up!
Any of these items could be included in your collection if you like them and feel they are fairly priced. But, what you pay should reflect what they are. Some older authentic items can be quite expensive (these are ones that often are reproduced). Reproductions might be nice for less costly decorating - but you need guidelines to tell the difference. Fantasy items are often cute and desirable for decorating. If helps if you know and trust the person you are buying from, but often you do not.
