Drink advertisements often appear on cups and glasses. When consumers purchase drinks at fast food restaurants, they have no choice but to notice the logos on their cups. Chicago-land has particular brands on their cups and glasses that will not appear in some other states.
Advertisements are Commercialism Style art. Generally, commercialism art did not appear until the 20th century. However, art historians may consider some of Toulouse Lautrec’s posters, notably, the ones about the Moulin Rouge, as Commercialism Style art.
Collectibles will usually become valuable after a certain number of years. If you travel to the 30th century, and assuming sentient beings are on Earth, your McDonald’s, plastic cup could be worth $1,000 to a collector (20th century money). This cup could be worth more than $10,000 if in the 30th century, manufacturers no longer produces plastics. If your McDonald’s plastic cup is the total, yearly fuel supply for a space ship, it could be worth $100,000.00. If your McDonald’s plastic cup is the only plastic material in our solar system, it could be worth 1 billion dollars.
Collectibles almost always have some remarkable art on their material. This art will include logos or be the logos. Some collectibles advertise movies and drink brands.
Cup collectibles that you obtain at fast-food restaurants hold different quantities of liquids (ounces). (Yes, the common American does not use milliliters or liters.) If you want a large, fountain drink at a Chicago-land, fast-food restaurant, you will get it in a cup; you cannot get it in a glass, a mug, or through a hose. (The drinks’ prices include the cups’ cost—probably one cent-five cents.)
Drinking glasses with Chicago Bears, Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox logos are available at souvenir ships. These glasses will not hold as much liquid as plastic cups from fast-food places. In addition, one glass may cost you $6.00.
