smirk ...honestly? RUN - don't walk - away from these...they're not 'paper ads out of magazines' - these are poorly-made color photocopies made from maps and other emphemera...copied then 'aged'...they are offered on eBay quite frequently by several sellers; among them, 'acofind' and 'taminator1969'...the Gulf (which I've seen several times on eBay) is merely an enlargement from a motorist's mileage book...there are two Gulf maps which have received the same treatment:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/GULF-OIL-STOP-AT-THE-SIGN-OF-THE-ORANGE-DISC-SIGN-POSTER-/171344583839

...note the top portion that says INFO-MAP or TOURGIDE MAP are cropped out...

...here's the Associated 'poster' on eBay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-ASSOCIATED-FLYING-A-SERVICE-POSTER-/191107134121

...there are also many Winchester, Sinclair, Harley-Davidson, circus, seed, etc. posters...they're all smaller than 11 x 17" - 'tabloid' size, which is standard on color photocopiers...


Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

Be careful...Wes HAGUE has a history behind him of pushing fake reproduction items as real. As evidenced by the following link.
