  Essential Books
Up a Level More Shots Books Whiskey Biz Pre-pro USA

There are two books that all pre-pro shot glass collectors should own. Both were written by Barbara Edmonson and are referred to frequently throughout this site by their acronyms “HSG” and “OASG”. They contain well-written histories of pre-pro shot glasses and their manufacture. They also contain extensive listings of glasses with drawings, information regarding ownership of the brands, and approximated (though dated) values. When a shot glass is described as “unlisted”, it means that it doesn’t appear in either HSG or OASG.
