Holy Molely! Is this an auction or priced sale? Just curious, there’s a ton of stuff.
Everything reads like a sale. Boy how would like to dust all that.

Any oldgassers going to the sale? If so, PM me, there's a couple of things I'm interested in buying.

I was in OKC Tuesday. Called and asked if I could look at the stuff. Wanted to see if it would be worth my trip. My answer was no. Had to be in line the morning of the 13th. I won't be there!

Hi Butch. That's why I dont go to estate sales for that reason. Usually big waste of time.

Right, either prices are low and it looks like a Black Friday scene with everybody grabbing all they can or they're so high no one's buying anything. They should have never done this as an estate sale.

This estate had several cars (Packards), signs, cans, pumps, etc and was auctioned in the early 2000’s by Aumann in Waukomis, Oklahoma.

If I remember the story correctly, an investor from California bought the ranch, cars and petroleum collection. He opted to sell everything but the land.

Bill and Marylin Humphrey noted in the listing have both been deceased for numerous years. I assume their children are liquidating “what’s left”.

I remember standing in the back during the auction next to Kyle and we both bought several signs and rare Oklahoma cans. It was in October but I don’t recall the year.....2000-2002.

Dan will remember scenario better.

I have a feeling most items in this estate sale will have condition issues and be over priced.
The petroliana stuff was roped off at the sale and they were letting only 5 people shop that area at a time. When one would leave, then one could go in. So it took a long to get into that area. Not the most ideal situation if you were not in the first 5. I was told that the man that was first in line had been there 2 days.

It will be a cold day in H--- when I stand in line to view overpriced items,or even under priced!

I looked at the photos and knew it wouldn't be worth the trouble for me to drive 2 1/2 hrs. Hopefully found something they liked.

I thought about going but knew it would be a cluster. If there was someone who waited in line for two days for what I saw in the pictures he was thinking that stuff was worth a lot more than I did.....GB

I arrived at 5:15am day of the sale and was #24 in line and that translated to 8th or 9th in the oil and gas area line.

The first two gentleman who were admitted into the oil and gas area bought several items. However, not many items that I would have bought if I were In earlier, I would have purchased 3 more globes.

I did buy 8 globes, the one that I went after and 7 more because I felt they were under priced. Also picked up several maps and paper items.

The signs were mostly rough and over priced. The Packard was nice but priced at 9k. The pumps were nice older restorations and priced north of 15k each.

The estate sale company used Barrett Jackson results as their methodology for several items.

Doing a “Black Friday” estate sale was a first for me but I wanted the Eason globe which I bought and having been looking for for a few decades......so I’m pleased and time well spent.
