I would stay away from anything this guy has he sells a lot of repops as orignial and schills his auctions. A lot of the time if you watch his stuff something will sell extremely high to a newer ebay user ID and a month later he will list the same exact item again.


Looking to buy graphic qt and 5qt cans, Penn qt Cans, Graphic Globes, Any Co-Op shaking hands items, Veltex/Fletcher Oil Co. Items, Independent oil items,and Wareco Items

Jerry, I have to disagree. I have bought and sold to this guy several times. If he sells a repop it's because he was fooled. He is a strong buyer at almost every show in the midwest. As far as shilling I don't know. I have seen him get good money for items and have seen him sell for less than he paid. I could be wrong but in my book this seller is good.

About five or six years ago another 2 gallon Phillips 66 can in similar condition brought hundreds on ebay and it just blew me away, so seeing this one at this price does not surprise me now. Do these cans show up often? I have and have had a lot of 2 gallon cans, but I have not had this one. Does anybody on this site have one in that condition?


I offer quart can re-lidding, can rolling, lid stamping, and dent removal.

This seller's items always have a ton of bids and always bring high $$$. Lots of activity on their auctions. I have not seen many repops from this seller but I will agree with the poster above. Something is going on here.

Can't say the guy has shill bidders. He's a strong buyer for sure. I've seen him buy 40% of the items in an auction! He'll turn around and list everything on ebay with no reserve at less than what he paid. He loses money on some, makes money on some, and in this case hits a home run.
Yeah, thats a crazy price for that can.

I have seen in person the same thing as Bob just said. I have bought from this seller on eBay and have gotten real items with no bad feelings about the experience at all.

I've seen a lot of various big cans in poor shape. Could be bidders have gotten tired of searching for this one in decent shape and they're motivated. All it takes is a couple of motivated (crazy) bidders.

Please explain how this could be fishy.

I don't think I've seen 10 Phillips 66 2 gallon cans like that in 20 years. 5 gallon yes, 2 gal no.

With prices like this we'll probably start seeing them.
The can in question is real. I saw it at the auction where the ebay seller bought it. I think the ebay deal is legit as well.

I too have seen him at sales and he buys 90% of what he sales on ebay at auctions. As it was stated before, he does lose money on items, but the the items he does make money on far exceed the ones he does not. I have bought several thing from him in the past. From my experience, he is legit. This is what he does for a living I do believe.
