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.

Awesome collection! Between you and Robert, no wonder I can't find any globes!

Rex, WOW what a great collection. I know i am not going to KY to look for anything because you guys over there have bought it all. LOL I have to go over to IL before Bob moves down here. LOL Again, thanks Rex for the pictures and thanks Robert for letting Rex post the pictures for use to see. Now that i think about i have seen Robert at the gas shows.


Looking for anything from Hoosier Pete, Platolene 500 and Red Bird.

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
