I usually read the incredible stories from the rest of the petroliana community about the incredible finds. This one is one that happened to me and probably will be my one and only.

My brother moved into his home in Rowlett, Texas (suburb of Dallas) back in the 1990s. When he moved in he found this Goodyear sign abandoned by the previous owner to the inside wall of the storage shed. He had no interest in it but left it hanging. In the last few years he became aware of my hobby. Last Monday he gave it to me. Wow...what a great brother! I cleaned it and did a little straightening and mounted it to a wood frame and then hung it in my garage with the rest of my collection.

Here are my questions. Is it rare? In its current condition, what would be the estimated value. It is enamel, it does have some scapes and bends, but the color is really vivid. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Steve

Nice sign, I have one in my collection too. I don’t think that they are rare from what I’ve seen. But the condition of most are not the best and yours is. I have no idea on value because I’ve seen them go from 250 and up.


Have gas all the time
