Ebay item number 320481998571. I had this sign in my watch but didn't want to take a $100 gamble on it. It was listed as a reproduction sign. My thoughts were it was real, but doubt kept me from making a bid on it. First off to my knowledge the "Magnolia" signs like this haven't been repro'ed as far as I know, but I was worried the item received might not be the item pictured. After an ordeal with a seller last year I learned a pretty expensive lesson on that trick. The seller of this sign had some questionable feedback as well.
My only other reason for being reluctant to bid was the fact it said Texlite, Inc. and not the usual Texlite Dallas on it? (The S also looks a little bit odd to me?) Did some of these signs say INC instead of the usual Dallas? Maybe Richard W., Pegasus has some input? Did a fellow Old Gasser purchase this sign, and did it turn our to be a genuine vintage sign? If the real deal, which it very well could have been, then someone got a nice sign at a good price. Obviously if someone took a $90 gamble then someone else had the same thoughts that it wasn't a repro sign. Any thoughts from the masses?
Here is the sign in question.....
