As with most things, supply is the No. 1 factor in determining the value of a particular collectible. You may think that can of kitschy Billy Beer you've had since the Carter administration is your winning lottery ticket, but there were an estimated 2 billion of them made. It's worth about a nickel, assuming you can find someone who wants it. The most valuable beer bottles - usually worth no more than $100 - are antiques dating to the 19th century, before bottles were mass-produced by machine.

Police and Phillies officials were trying Monday to identify the fan who tossed a beer bottle toward Ryan Howard after the slugger grounded out to end Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers at Citizens Bank Park. Philadelphia police described the incident as a disorderly conduct case, and said the person who threw the aluminum Bud Light Lime bottle toward the Phillies first baseman was a white man between the ages of 30 and 35 with a medium build and reddish-brown hair. The man was wearing a blue Phillies hat with a red brim, a gray Phillies shirt with red lettering, and faded red shorts, police said.

ONE NIGHT in 1987, Jeffrey Rosenblum opened a bottle of Whitbread Ale and poured himself a glass. He took a sip and glanced down at the bottle. Something caught his eye. Something unspoken, something visceral. Something. He rose from his living room couch and placed the empty on the mantel. That's where it all began. With a single bottle of imported English ale, Rosenblum launched a collection that would spread from the mantel, across shelves, into cabinets and every nook in his home in Northeast Philadelphia, more than 4,000 bottles strong.

ISSUE | PHILLIES Boorish fan I was disgusted to learn that a fan at Saturday's Phillies game threw a beer bottle at Ryan Howard ("Beer bottle is thrown at Howard," Monday). I have been a Phillies fan since 1948, and the Phils have never had a first baseman who contributed more to the team and to the city than Howard. I hope the person who threw the bottle is identified and required to apologize to Howard in person for his cowardly behavior. |William Cooney, Philadelphia

What's wrong with this photo (Back Page Oct. 8)? That guy has a beer bottle in his hand - what's up with security at the Vet? Terry J. Linder, Atlantic City At the last Eagles game, just before the National Anthem, all the cheerleaders took to the field to dance - and to my surprise the music that was being played was not a song popular with any Americans. To make matters worse, it was a song with Spanish lyrics. Steven Muzychka, Philadelphia

CHESTERTOWN, Md. - Every week, Christeena Minopetros combs bays and beaches for sea glass, whether she's in Florida, Greece, or her childhood home of Sea Bright, N.J. This month, she was dipping her fingers in the waves off Long Beach Island, where she returns for a family vacation most every summer, hoping to find the greens and blues and maybe, possibly, hopefully, a sliver of red or orange. "It's such a mystery for me," said Minopetros, who serves on the board of the North American Sea Glass Association, a national collectors group with more than 2,000 people on its mailing list.

A 20-year-old West Norriton woman is suing a township nightclub for $60,000 over injuries she sustained after being struck with a beer bottle wielded by an intoxicated customer on July 16, 1993. Christine Milano, filed a complaint in Montgomery County Court alleging that Brownies was doubly negligent, for allowing her to enter with a "patently phony" proof of age and for serving another customer who was visibly intoxicated. "I think it's outrageous that Brownies, that invites hundreds of people to this establishment, could allow this type of behavior to go on," said her attorney, David A. Tornetta.

In the ongoing melodrama that is Ryan Howard's twilight in Philadelphia, Tuesday appears to be an important day. Howard will start at first base, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said, for the first time in more than a week. "I'm going to get a look at him, see how he looks," Mackanin said. "Then, I'll probably make a decision with how I'm going to handle the whole thing in the near future. " That decision, Mackanin said, is in his hands and not the front office's. Howard's mere presence Monday attracted several TV cameras inside the Phillies clubhouse after Saturday's incident when a man threw a beer bottle at Howard.

The Philadelphia police officer seen on videotape slapping a woman and knocking her to the ground after last year's Puerto Rican Day Parade in North Philadelphia, has gotten his job back, police said. Jonathan Josey was reinstated Monday, a Police Department spokesman said. Josey, a decorated veteran of the force, was seen on video knocking Aida Guzman to the ground as she crossed a street after the annual parade on Sept. 30, 2012. Josey said he accidentally hit Guzman while trying to swipe a beer bottle from her hand when a crowd threw bottles at police making an arrest.

HAVE YOU EVER lost your temper? I sure have. Have you ever done something truly stupid while angry? Me too. Have you ever used power given to you by the city of Philadelphia to have someone charged with a crime as a way of explaining your angry reaction? That's a much smaller club. And that's why I think we're missing the point about former Philadelphia Police Lt. Jonathan Josey and his now-notorious post-Puerto Rican Day Parade punch in the face to Aida Guzman.
