Without a doubt my collection is diverse and not “high end” (although I wish it were!). But I am always amazed at what is “out there” that I did not have any idea existed. One area that I have thought about is the service station restroom “key sets”. I have three...two are pretty common (Texaco and Gulf) and the other a little more rare (Sunoco). My interest concerns...What else is out there?

Have you run across any others? What are they and how rare are they. If you have photos of your sets it would be an educational experience. Again...What is out there?

Those are sweet! I've never seen the Gulf before. Love it!!
There is a minty Sunoco set on Ebay right now bringing over $500 with 20 hours to go.

Yes I am “germaphobe” and yes, I still think they are cool and would gladly own them but I can’t help to think of the fecal and urine those keys would have had on them back in the day. Carry on...

I only have two. The Shell has a couple of variations of the actual key holders. My Texaco key set has the plastic rather than the earlier metal key holders. Also, I put on Texaco car keys since they were the only keys I could find with the star logo. Cheers, Don.
