...I've got 178 different Gulf blotters, and know of at least 15 I don't have...yet...

...some can be found for as little as $5, but a few will set you back $50 and up...

I've actually seen a few of the earliest Texaco blotters go $100 plus. Like anything else, rarity, condition and desireablity will create levels of value. On the bright side, you can put together a nice collection on a limited budget. I myself have have just a few but I once bought a Wolf's Head of modest graphics because it was originally from just across the rivert from me at a dealership that no longer exists. I learned a little local history just from that one purchase.


One of my favorites...


....and a couple others.....

These are from the early 30s... The pamphlet and blotter were given to the Motorist to advertise Tydol's New Motor Oil:

Wow all of these are very nice in the graphic department like you all said.

Here's a big question. Are there repops of blotters?

Love those Tydols!!

On Ebay, I've seen blotters being advertised; That were not blotters... They were thin "paper" advertising...

I've seen others that were in actuality, post cards...

On ebay, if someone just gives a "vague" description in their ad, I send them an email and ask for a photo of the back side...

Here is the front and backs of a blotter from the 1940s, a blotter from the 1920s and a postcard from the late 1970s:





Hope this helps?
