Seriously why does this guy have to put his mug on every item he lists. Can't he just take pictures of his signs?

I don't bid on items when narcissistic sellers do that.
As well as selling fakes,for that very reason alone you'd think he wouldn't want to be noticed.

There's another on ebay that can't keep his ego out of the lens either and also pimps his 1/2 dressed girl out as well.

It's guys like this that are ruining this hobby and taking a lot of the fun out of collecting Petroliana; seems now in order to come to an agreeable price I have to provide pictures of my collection to some individuals that I am trying to buy an item from because they are afraid I'm a "Flipper" and I am taking advantage of them (please refer to mug face and his counter part in New Jersey). As previously noted with the links; this guy buys signs off ebay for their true market value and then tries to resell them with his jacked up prices! mad

After a seller saw one of these guys fishing for 3500 for the same sign he had I had to explain to him that there sign wasn't worth 3500 just because someone is asking 3 or 4 times its real value on eBay. Even if they had something I had to have I would never deal with them.

I offered them the 463.99 for the shell, there winning bid- they countered with 1500. knocked off 700. but still triple of what they paid- I was originally 2nd bidder on this to the clowns winning bid.
I hope they never post anything I ever want because I will never buy from them.. cool

I like reading your posts, they are quite entertaining. I do agree about people being in the pictures on their listings - it takes away from a really good view of the item they are actually selling. When people buy these kinds of items online (expensive), they want the best and most detialed pictures. I have bought one item from this seller and everything went fine. He has also bought from me once or twice.

Most of you already know I sell on ebay, and I too have been the butt of the joke for many old gassers. In fact - because of a couple innocent mistakes (which I have learned from), I am probably on many of your "do not buy from" lists that old gassers have compiled.

People who buy everything they sell on ebay from ebay in my opinion is NOT OK, or a sucessful way to get people to follow you and your items. I am not completely innocent of this myself, but in most of these cases I have actually taken a loss on the item when it was re-sold. I like to sell a wide variety of advertising items both new and old. I do have a soft spot for amazing porcelain signs, and have paid up nicely for lots of the signs I have sold at a small profit or even a loss - just to keep people watching.

I like to have a good variety of items that appeal to a broad specturm of buyers. Some people only want newer light up signs, some people poke fun at me for even selling them. Many items I sell are simply to keep a good "flow" of quality items. I, like the rest of you am not out digging through abandoned barns or properties to find my signs and collectibles. I don't however buy all of my items on ebay and attempt to sell them double the price. I am out every weekend at local and not so local auctions, I am searching craigslist, I am talking to people who know people, I am out making relationships with people who have amazing collections that are willing to sell a little at a time, or maybe 5 years down the road. I travel thousands of miles a year to buy quality items that people can buy from me in the comfort of their own living room or office. I pay ebay's fees, and have to claim my ebay sales on my taxes every year. I spend hours upon hours searching out great items in unconventional places. This is part hobby, part business for me. I have two boys (3 & 7), and believe me - this hobby/business does take time away from them (for now - future road trips ahead). If I'm not out buying, I'm ebaying. If I'm not ebaying, I'm packing a item to ship. If I'm not packing a item to ship, I am responding to email. If I'm not responding to email, I am texting or talking to my "picker" friends. Not to mention I still put in 40 a week, go to t-ball games, help with homework, keep the wife happy, etc.

I sell advertising because I love it and want to offer the best items I can to others who appreciate them as much as I do. I do not sell because I think I'm going to be on TV, or because I think I'm going to make double or more on one individual item. I just have fun with it. I am reasonable enough to know that not everyone agrees, and that I may hurt someone feelings along the way - that's just life.
I love great ORIGINAL advertising, and have been lucky to sell some great items to people who really appreciate them.

I thought this post would be a good opportunity to reveal a little about me since ebay sellers and "flippers" seem to be the super evil that old gassers hate the most. Just remember - this is 2013. The days of deals and people not knowing what they have is over and has been for a while now. I guess I'm a flipper myself since everything I have and buy is for sale. I have almost 900 feedback on ebay and it's 100% positive. I am proud of this because of the effort I put into it. I just wish everyone would leave feedback because I would have a score of well over 2000 if everyone that bought something did. I ask high prices because that is the nature of the game - everyone wants to offer half or less even when they know it's worth a lot more.

It is my belief that we have reached a time where everyone thinks their "junk" has turned to gold. I am just amazed at the insane asking prices on my local craigslist for signs that nobody should ever want to add to any collection but a junk pile. It has gotten very hard to buy anything at a reasonable price. At some point the BS will weed itself out. The wanna be's will fail and the good guys will be left standing.

People have been buying and re-selling since the beginning of time. I don't see anything wrong with it, but as with anything else there is a right and a wrong way to do things.

Thanks for reading and giving me the chance to introduce myself. Hopefully, gr8signfinds will be a source old gassers will trust and watch for years to come. I try to post the things I think you guys will appreciate on here so you can see them on ebay. Don't hesitate to PM me in regard to a individual item - I am always willing to deal within reason.

Pretty simple...they prob dont use their own money. Say they pay with a credit card...they have a full month to try and flip that sign...thats why the second they get them up they go back on ebay...even if this seller makes a 15 percent return on an item after fees....where are you going to make that today?? Is it the right thing to do? Yes and no. This seller makes it very obvious just based on the completed items he bid on list. If there were more original items on ebay and this sellers face was not in every picture how many people would notice whats going on here....everyone does business in a different way...at the end of the day who really cares...let him do his thing his way and just dont buy from that seller. It does not matter what price he has the item at...if your a smart collector you should know what to pay for items....

...you'll have to take this to Office Depot and have it output on 11 x 17' card stock, then cut it out along the dotted lines (being careful not to cut any of the 'hair product' off)...now, all you have to do is mount a paint stirring stick to the bottom edge, and you can hold the mask in front of your face - or, tape a piece of string to the left and right sides (on the back side) and tie both strings behind your head...it's 12" tall and should be large enough...

...now, you too can be an eBay flipper glamourpuss!

Well to paraphrase Gulfiends' motto that is a "hysterically accurate representation"!

now listed 11 times:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/early-shell-porcelain-sign-embossed-sign-rare-MAKE-AN-OFFER-/321181686343


I offered them the 463.99 for the shell, there winning bid- they countered with 1500. knocked off 700. but still triple of what they paid- I was originally 2nd bidder on this to the clowns winning bid.
I hope they never post anything I ever want because I will never buy from them.. cool


This clown is killing me! In the span of 10 days I was the 2nd place bidder on four signs that I now see listed by him that are way OVER priced and to add insult to injury have to see his ugly mug holding the signs. I'm sure he sells a few signs here and there on "Best Offers", but his inventory is now at 181 signs and growing with 3 day auctions clogging up the search criteria daily. Yes I am tired of looking at this guy! mad

It is the posts like this that turn so many OFF on OLDGAS You guys should mind your own bussiness and if you don't like them don't look . You have no idea what kind of revenue these guys generate or what kind of customers they draw in. Sounds like a lot of jealousy and this is how you guys deal with it, i see it time after time on here

You guys may have it all wrong, he may be going for the lady collectors out there. Or possibly a TV deal like Frank and Mike. Mitch
