I've been collecting signs for a while. I know I've been duped and bought some signs that were advertised as originals and were actually fakes. I read the forum talking about fakes and look at my Sims book. To be honest, I still get confused. I don't worry about buying items from Oldgas members but I do still look on EBay. Would there be an issue if I found a sign on EBay and then ask Olldgas members their opinion of the sign? Thanks.

As Steve says, more than a few have asked about Petro Items before shelling out hard earned money...

Remember though, the Membership is not infallible. Not often, but every once in a while; We get it wrong... (db and I used to tease each other, because we have had to apologize to the Membership for making an error...)

db, had a memory better than an elephants!

And at times, when I was "feeling my oats and getting cocky"... He would bring me down to earth, by starting a sentence... "Remember when you said.... LOL....

Thanks guys, all of us mistakes. As I stated earlier I have been duped. This will give me confidence when purchasing off eBay. Thanks again.

Please "DO" ask before buying. Nothing bothers us more than good people getting ripped off by those people that are taking advantage of the uneducated. We want to preserve the integrity of this hobby and preserve the value of the items we have invested so much time and energy into!
Please "DO" ask!

Yah, I should have elaborated. With only 3 years in the hobby, I would almost never buy a sign outside of Sunoco without first asking here on Oldgas! It's saved my butt a few times.
And I always watch other peoples posting on the same matter. It's very educational.
Good luck and can't wait to see what you bring to the table.

If your feeling it, post up some of what you already have in the Showcase forum. Always nice to visit peoples collections!
