P T Barnum is credited with saying "There's a sucker born every minute". No matter who actually said it the saying is as true today as when it was first uttered.

I get the occasional guy who doesn't care if it's real and just wants something for the man cave. But this is endless. I just can't believe there are this many dumb people out there.

Situations similar to this drive me nuts on all the Mobil repros out there, but anymore I just shake my head and move on as there doesn't seem to be any end in sight. I do my part by posting the reproduction signs in the known repro section here on OG, so information is available for anyone taking the time to research a possible purchase. I don't post the outright FANTASY signs like this as I feel anyone paying more than $20 for an obvious decorator piece is a fool with too much money.......

Steve, if it makes you feel any better, they're probably shill-bidding the heck out of their own auctions to artificially drive up the price hoping some sucker will bid, so maybe not all of these are going to poor, uneducated suckers out there.

I believe you're right about the shill bidding. I'll bet that if someone thinks a sign sold for 400 they'd be real happy to pay 300 for one just like it

If you go to eBay and find one of the 100's of guys selling fake stuff, just go to his sold listings and sort by 'highest price first'. You will be shocked. 100's of them. Nothing new really. Very sad though. 95% of this stuff on ebay is fake.
