As we all know and continue to hear, this hobby is full of some of the best people around. While we all differ in age and interest, most all the people that share our rank care about one another, and genuinely want to help. Recently, I purchased 5 2 gallon cans from Maurice Campbell. The transaction went flawlessly, but when I opened the box, one of the cans was incorrect. Its not a problem, I thought, and decided to keep the can, and simply told Maurice to quote me a price on the other one. Never heard back, and figured he is busy, and simply forgot. Well today, the correct can showed up on my doorstep, a Midwest Motor Oil, orange and black, picturing 50s cars, with the note that said the can was a gift. Now, Im not involved with many collectors outside petroliana, but I doubt that a lot of other hobbies have such high quality people. Right after Kevin Frith's story on his globe delivery and the collectors who helped there, I found it appropriate to write of my own experience in this selfless hobby of ours.
THANK YOU EVR SO MUCH, MAURICE!!!!


Good oil cans don't wait for people, people wait for them.

Maurice is a class act... a good portion of my Cities can collection came from him & I'm still grateful.

Agreed! Can't say enough nice things about Maurice. He has also help expand my Champlin and Coryell collection. Went up to visit him and Christine a couple years ago and had a great time and some awesome BBQ.


Coryell 70/Nebraska items wanted

Anyone that hangs out and tolerates a texas pelican is a good fellow.

You would be hard pressed to find a nicer guy in this hobby. Maurice is a true class act and I'm proud to call him a good friend.


Originals only for me. Always looking for Simpson oil, Super A, and MFA oil cans and globes.
