I want to thanks the globe experts for clearing uo the fact that Jacks globes are fantasies, I'm leaving in about an hour to visit Jack and Mark Mendenhall. I've talked to them over the years but never meet them personnally. As I talked to Mark yesterday as his dads globe (the Richlube ) was being talked about and experts say its a fantasy. mark said his dad had that globe for over fourty years and got it from an old Richfield distributor. Many of the earleir globe collectors have wondered about that globe scents its the only one anyone has ever seen. Funny how Cheese can find a Wilshire sign in very very very good condission in a northern city that so rare we in the area from where it comes can't find them. well I'm glad this is all cleared up. Jack can rest easier now knowing for sure. Just seems funny that if a guy was going to have a great looking globe made at the cost of = $1,500.00 to start he would have had more made. Thanks this is a great site you all Helped the Hobby.

I've got a question for you Dwaine.
Other than Dick explaining that Jack had sold some originals and replaced them with repro's what other globe was questioned?
You said "globes", plural, as in more than one. Who was it that jumped to conclusions about the ElCamino? OK, that's two questions. By the way it was Elden. There's one original known. Could be more out there, nobody knows. What everyone or at least anyone that bothers to get educated on the subject knows, is that the ElCamino globe has been repopped.
It seems a couple of guys want to make more out of something than what its really about.
Anyone that thinks someone hasn't made some very limited runs (one to five)of repop or fantasy globes (or signs) is very naive.

I don't understand your anaolgy about the sign Cheese posted. Are you asking how it got to Michigan? Probably in a truck or trailer. Or were you trying to imply the sign isn't authentic (without saying so in so many words? Hmm, a couple more questions. LOL.
I attended a collector auction in Illinois. The collection was from California. Some of the items in the collection were from the eastern states. Does that mean they were fake? Absolutely not! That means they were transported to another location.
Pretty simple stuff, just like finding out about the Richlube globe.

Still trying to figure out how we got from the Richfield School House Globe to a raging debate about real versus repop, to pictures of Cheeses signs (what's that all about), back to the globe discussion.

This is one wacky thread.

Now we have about four separate discussions going on the site about collecting and using real versus repop globes and whats better or worse.

To help settle some of this I made a call to the guy that gave me the Richfield book to see if he could put me in touch with some Richfield guys from way back. Also going to visit a former Richfield Station owner tomorrow to see if I can get some clarification on some of the globe issues.

Planning on visiting the Mendenhalls on Saturday, so I will ask them what they think is real or repop in their collection too. Would like to know more about that Richfield Oil Globe.

I think I will post the outcome as a new thread since this one has gotten way long and way too crazy.
