Up to 500. No way to contact bidders, as the seller has kept bidders ID's secret. How convienient.

I always thought that was a bad move by ebay.

Someone is going to get hosed and they have no clue.

Look at that other garbage listed.

Listen guys, if you are really wanting to do something, here is the right contact person to get a fire started: Lisa Walke. Her E-Mail address is lwalke72@ford.com. Her phone number is 313-845-0431. I think the more of us that respond, the more active Ford will be. Just an FYI for those who want to contact the seller, his cell phone number is 983-714-1401. I am sure he would be happy to hear from you. Ask him for the discont if you buy 50 of the Ford signs, he will be real happy.......

No...if you really want do to something about it, go to Roundtop down by San Antonio in April and these signs will be all over the place. The responible parties will be set-up down there. It is an overseas import cess-pool. I'm fairly certain that besides the Ford & Gargoyle ovals, this party is also responsible for the Socony Aircrafts, die-cut 3' Pegasus done in porcelain, multiple goodyear signs, coke tires checked sign and many others. The funny thing is, the shelving on them is always reversed i.e. white lettering is always raised instead of being recessed like on other porcelain signs. The colors are off, they are really satiny to the touch, among other characteristics. They are brought over in containers along with your run-of-the-mill import **** such as goat-carts, gazing balls, rusted "shabby-chic" metal art, all the different wooden candle-holders, most of the stuff you see at low-grade Pier One type stores.

Every year that I go down there, I walk the fields and I can immediately recognize what the "new" repro scam is because there will be a minimum of 5 booths with one just thrown out with other signs that are legit OR they will be mixed in with unrelated antiques. What's the chances that 5 booths in a 40 acre field will all have a ford oval, a socony ac, a gargoyle rochester oval, a die-cut 3' pegasus horse and a goodyear bicycle tires sign??

Thread lightly.
DO NOT ACCUSE ANYONE OF DECEIVING, UNLESS YOU CAN PROVE IT IN COURT [you might have to].

I'm not an expert on any signs, as has been pointed out here on more than one occasion. lol But comparing the two signs in question there seems, to me, to be more than a couple differences between them. The white borders are different, the holes are in different places and the writing on each sign at least to my poor eyesight seem to be different. Also, atleast in the photos they seem to be of different color blues. But ofcourse I haven't seen them side by side in person. Just my .02 worth. I am talking about the two Amistadi signs, the one he bought at the end of Dec and the one he has on ebay now.

Wow I just got this ford sign in todays mail from my ebay purchase. I bid at the last second before really looking closley at photos or his feedback. This sign is without a doubt a repop. I have tried to contact him and he will not respond. You collectors beware! Once again I got burnt on a repop. Oh well another lesson learned.
