...a basic Mobil plate brings more than this Pennzoil rack sign. Someone got a great deal on that Pennzoil!!!
To be honest in this day and age I'm surprised that a common Mobil plate brought that much. The days of minty original common Mobil plates bringing $500 seems like distant history, especially when I see the fantasy plates routinely selling for more than originals. I know, it's a dead horse we're beating, but for those of us in the hobby for more than a decade it's perplexing to try and understand why people are paying what they are for fantasy signs currently. It's almost as if they're being embraced by some as being "collectible"? I digress.......
those pennzoil rack signs have kinda tanked... not sure why, i think they are great! but I had a full rack with 2 mint signs and 2 that were solid 8.5 condition. i barely got 1k each for the mint ones, and like 700-800 each for the others.
those specific pennzoils are just not desired like they used to be!
Those particular Pennzoil signs, the small and the large size for the original bottle rack have been reproduced like crazy , might be why the one in the auction did not bring strong money but I would want to see better pictures of it before I call it India junk.....🤷♂️
Kraft is a reputable company... I have no doubts the sign was legit. But for anyone wondering, those original rack signs are marked on the backsides
Thanks Bryce, I've always wanted one but with the reproduced versions have stayed away from them. Do you happen to have a pic of the makers mark that you could share?
