Amusement park for advertising collectors. The amount of volume is out of this world. Looks like everything is contained in his yard but has he ever receive notices from the city to clean up?

Oh yea all the time but instead of telling us to clean up they get excited and start asking "where you get that" we been lucky.

Koby,

I am assuming you know:

1- It took years to collect the stuff you see.
2- Stuff was available years ago (say 30).
3- A newcomer to this hobby will need "deep pockets" to accumulate a collection such as this.

I know of a collector (in his 70's) that has the most beautiful signs. He bought them years ago dirt cheap.
One example is a BUS sign he got from a couple at a flea market for $50 in early 70's. Similar bus sign
brought almost $15K at a recent auction. His is pristine & almost 10-condition.

Sorry, I can not share the pictures per his request!

Happy Easter everyone!
