Hi, I'm looking for a Union 76 rotating ball sign. These are very large and are 6 to 7ft in diameter and light up. I'd like to find something complete if possible and I'm willing to travel. Also I'm willing to pay a finders fee if someone can put me in touch with someone who is selling one and a purchase takes place.

Thanks,
Brian

It’s worth what someone is willing to pay for one. Those are hard to find. Union Oil company made sure most of them were destroyed after they took them down.

I asked a dealership yesterday, they have an Orange one that has been Painted over for the last 25 years , They said not for sale , I think I'm going to try a little harder than a casual asking, maybe a large offer, and findout who owns the lot it's on, public records should tell me, they say it's a rotating one, I was a kid when they painted it, I can't remember if it was a rotating one

We have quite a few of the new ORANGE 4 foot ones in WASH. I have not seen one rotate yet. I did call the sign company and get a price on one. Seems like it was about $5k. J

Is that 5k for the ball only? Or the whole sign ?

Yes this is the only one like this I have seen, most are going back to the original pole
