Can someone tell me what is up with crossed X Minolta lenses? I'm assuming they are better since the sell for more, but can someone elaborate for me?

Rarer, not better. They are exactly the same as their equivalent none crossed X lenses. The crossed X is just ink.

Also, I've heard that the older or original beercan is the best, would this mean a crossed x or would I look for something else?

There is only one beercan - the 70-210 F/4. There is some variation in the colour of coatings, but no-one seems to be able to say which is better. The crossed X, as above, is just ink.
