Union 76 rotating ball sign - Thu Apr 19 2018 02:17 AM

Hi, I'm looking for a Union 76 rotating ball sign. These are very large and are 6 to 7ft in diameter and light up. I'd like to find something complete if possible and I'm willing to travel. Also I'm willing to pay a finders fee if someone can put me in touch with someone who is selling one and a purchase takes place.

Thanks,
Brian

No guys.. that's a 2 half design sign. I dont know how to post picts on this site or I would but here is a Google image link to exactly what I'm looking for. The ball actually rotates and is lighted.

There are a couple of members that have been looking for one for several years without any luck so far. Better grab the first one you find!

I was just offered one, any idea what one is worth? I'm not sure if it's a good price or not

Is the price a secret?

It’s worth what someone is willing to pay for one. Those are hard to find. Union Oil company made sure most of them were destroyed after they took them down.

I asked a dealership yesterday, they have an Orange one that has been Painted over for the last 25 years , They said not for sale , I think I'm going to try a little harder than a casual asking, maybe a large offer, and findout who owns the lot it's on, public records should tell me, they say it's a rotating one, I was a kid when they painted it, I can't remember if it was a rotating one

When someone says Not for Sale. Start piling Benjamin’s in front of them.

We have quite a few of the new ORANGE 4 foot ones in WASH. I have not seen one rotate yet. I did call the sign company and get a price on one. Seems like it was about $5k. J

Re: Union 76 rotating ball sign - Mon Jul 15 2019 04:22 AM

Is that 5k for the ball only? Or the whole sign ?

Yes this is the only one like this I have seen, most are going back to the original pole
