Why such recent interest in Red Indian? 15 years ago I never heard a peep about the brand. Canadians seem to like collecting Canadian brands but with Red Indian it sounds like many Americans are also interested. Maybe investment is the reason.

Everyone I know loves Red Indian. The reproduction foreign stuff has not affected the price of the real pieces at all. They continue to climb. Red Indian has been the Canadian leader for as long as I can remember. By far the best graphics, according to the masses.

Red Indian stuff for sure has been HOT for years...here in Canada and USA.. I think the collectors in the USA like it because of the connections to early American Indians as well.. I think Kyle Moore told me that many years ago. It is all about graphics and it has that.. I have turned my interest to the early Canadian Buffalo ( Prairie Cities or City Oil Co.)collectibles,, seems to be harder to find than Red Indian, especially signs..

I also agreed with Dave, reproduction stuff isn't hurting the value of great original stuff , in fact maybe it's making the original stuff even more collectible but you really need to do your home work... ( and I hated school work ), LOL, LOL,,,

Want to get your Red Indian fill....check the Kijiji ad posted couple hours ago.
Seller in Toronto with Rack complete with sign, 20 quarts, 3 grease cans and three one gallon oil cans.

Looks very nice... wish I had an extra $10,000

Based on what Red Indian cans have sold for recently on eBay the cans alone would bring $10,000 if sold individually would they not.

Good ones going for $330 - $450 CDN. Poker Frank just sold another for $370.

18 months ago same cans in similar condition going for $200.
Good time to cash in your Red Indian Stock!

I have seen that rack in person and the cans in it are very nice. Not your typical eBay quality tins. I believe he's selling off part or maybe all of his collection as I saw much of it listed on eBay this morning.

As far as can prices go, the common condition cans may have been a couple hundred 2 years ago, but high grade collector quality cans say 9.0 condition or better have been much higher than that and for a long time already. I bought a red quart can in 2008 that was well over $500 and today that same can is much higher. It is an all English version and those are quite rare. That rack in the picture has a few if them I believe.

Nice display if someone is looking for a full rack of collector grade tins. Price was 12,750.00 or offers on the eBay listing? Might have to go for a visit and see why he is selling it.

seller posted all of his Red indian items (including above rack) on my facebook 'for sale' group a couple weeks ago... he is selling most of it off to focus on other brands. the cans and rack looked really nice!
