Pocket Lighter & Pyro Gadgets Club

Sometimes referred to as the PLPG, they want to keep the hobby of lighter collecting alive. Many of the members have been collecting for years and have a lot experience to share (with other members of course). According the PLPG website, it is the place to be if you are a serious lighter collector.

Once a year the PLPG has a show (in St. Louis, other site will considered in for future shows). At the show you can buy and sell lighters, even trade (stories too, not just lighters). Members of the PLPG get a discount on lighters for sale at the show or get your lighters appraised. Entry is free (for members).

Keeper of the Flame Award:

At the St. Louis show a "Keeper of The Flame" is choosen (by past "Keeper's"). The winner gets a plaque and is featured in Flint& Flame. To be considered to the Keeper Award you must make contributions to the hobby of lighter collecting.

I have been wanting to join a lighter collecting club for a while, but I hate that they charge to become a member.

About Flint & Flame:
From PLPG website:
"The PLPG publication is called Flint & Flame. It is 5.5 " x 8.5 " of the most informative documentation on lighter collecting available to the collector today. It is published 4 times per year .

The Flint & Flame is produced in COLOR, which means you get to view clear, sharp photos of lighters as they really look. Besides informative feature articles written by knowledgeable collectors, Flint and Flame also provides lighter event details, want and sale ads (free to members) and much, much more."
This is also a perfect way to meet people with the same interest that you have, so what do you have to loose, come and join the PLPG today."

I have a set of 6 Zippo lighters of The Beatles Album Covers made in 1997 I think. The date on the bottom is XIII on the right side. Also stamped on the lighters is "1996 Apple Corps Limited A Beatles Product". Set includes "A Hard Days Night, Let It Be,Magical Mystery Tour, Abbey Road, and a plain silver one that just says The Beatles stamped in it. All six lighters are in one box and still have the seals on them. These were purchased at a smoke shop and I was told that they were only allowed 2 sets of these to sell. Not sure how many sets like this were produced. If you can give me any info on these lighters and possibly a value of this set please contact me at russ2312@gmail.com . If you would like a pic I can send you one on your phone or email. I will be selling these lighters after I find out a little more about them. Thanks, Russ
