We visited my good friend and Kentucky neighbor Robert this week. His collection has grown considerably and he has it organized really well. Robert is always out hunting, looking for the good stuff. Most of the collectors on the right side know Robert. You can always find him at the shows and flea markets. I value his friendship. Robert has been known to take a peek at Oldgas from time to time. Hope you like these pictures.

I'm glad that you all enjoyed Robert's collection. The group photos of the globes don't really do his collection justice. He has a very nice sign collection as well. The Penzoil curb sign is NOS and still has the original paper on it.
When I first met Robert around 1996, I believe that he had 10 globes. Now Robert just doesn't throw $$$$$ at his collection. He is a very steady shopper. As you can see he has done very well.
Cris, the globe lens in the case is STANDARD OIL OF KENTUCKY size 16 1/2 inch.
The only thing that I can find wrong with Robert is that he won't sell me anything. LOL. Rex
