I've always enjoyed collecting Cities Service stuff and a lot of it is pretty neat stuff but I think I'm going to be watching from now on, in case I run into a set of these teeny little plastic gas pumps, cause they're evidently worth WAY MORE than I'd have ever imagined. I hope I find a set at the next farm sale! My luck, the price will have gone down by then!

That's actually a pretty decent price for those. I've seen them go for more. Some brands go for a LOT more !

Check out JJ's site some time... http://gasnshakers.com/

I visited JJ'S web site and I was impressed! I had no idea that there were so many variations of the little plastic pumps. It still amazes me that they could bring so much! Of course, theres a lot of things in the gas & oil world that amaze me! Maybe thats why its so much fun!!--Thanks Scott!

John has a lot of $$$$ in his collection of shakers. Some of them bring some good money on ebay.

Ebay is funny... you can find these Cities Service shakers in the $35-$55 area a lot. Latley some have went through the roof! Some of the common ones, what i mean is ones you see for sale 6-8 times a year have been up in prices for some reason. With ebay like any auction, you will see a set of Skychief with Petrox shakers bring $125-$150 4 times in a row then next set bring $45 then next set back to $150, go figure right. LOL

Like any thing we collect rare hard to find sets demand big money. Condition isn't a big factor except on common ones.

Brad don't tell my wife... she doesn't need to that. LOL

Kevin,
You should be able to find a nice set for $50-$60 or so. Give them time! I had a few sets for sale early in the year.

Thanks John--I always watch all the Cities Service stuff to keep up on what it brings and I usually bid on the things that are of good quality but I really had no reason to believe those shakers were worth that much! I'll keep watching and I'm sure some will come along again. Just have to be patient!
