Hello,

I would like to start collecting gas station patches. Who ever collects them, can you post a pic of your collection.

Thanks

I still have a couple of patches left. Looking back I probably shouldn't have sold the ones that I did sell:

BOB, Nice collection !!!
Posted By: Bob Richards Re: Who collects gas station patches? - Wed Jul 11 2012 11:52 PM
Thanks Tom... If I hadn't sold so many patches, I would have had easily 4 times the number I have now and each was different.... I get bored too easily at times... LOL

I found this old thread and figured I’d add to it. I’ve been collecting patches for about a year and 1/2 now and this is most of my collection!

Nice collection, Mark. Glad you brought up this old thread.
Here's a display of my Buick dealer and body shop patches that I framed last winter. Many of the patches were from my uniforms or issued to me to wear over the years. Some are older than me. wink

I am always interested in any leads on rare or unique gasoline or oil patches that I do not have in my collection.
Posted By: Mark8216 Re: Who collects gas station patches? - Sun Jun 12 2022 05:21 PM
Pakymn, you could open a patch museum with the collection you have!!! Those Sunray Patches are my favorite, I have never seen them and I look for patches all of the time. Very nice.

A few more patches that I recently added to my collection.

I don't collect them, but I recently stumbled upon these on eBay for the St. Paul, Minnesota based Oskey Brothers Petroleum Corporation's North Star stations. I have an uncle who worked at one of these full service stations in the 1960s. I'm sure these patches or something like it was part of his uniform.

Hey pakymn. I just spied this KO patch in your collection. Any chance of getting an isolated closeup image of this one? I'm wondering what you can tell me about this. Is this from the Kunz Oil Company's KO stations? Thanks.

Oskey Brothers was acquired by Northwestern Refining Company of St. Paul Park in the 1950's. Northwestern retailed gasoline through SuperAmerica, Laurie Gas, Trax Oil, North Star and Webb stations when in operation.

Norhtwestern was acquired by Ashland Oil in 1970. Ashland eventually changed the stations to SuperAmerica or sold them off.

I worked at the old Northwestern refinery and came across some of these patches there.

Thanks for this. This is all very helpful. I didn't know Northwestern acuqired Oskey Bros so early, though I should have known it smile
