I think we have all critized how people come up with prices (re-mohawk) and thats easy if its someone else's item. So here's little challenge/game. How about everyone look around in their collection and pick their best sign/globe,etc.(just ONE item). Post the picture and tell us all what value you put on it even though its NOT for sale....Might get some interesting pricing here!!!! I'll start.......10k

I dont have any high dollar signs nor am I an expert, but if that is in as good condition as it appears to be and is a double sided sign, your pricing may not be too far off. That is one nice sign and has automobile and animal connection - a twofor!!!! Plus the age of that tire. Awesome.

Hubba you just might have to have all of us local boys over to show us how to post these pics. I have also tried and can not figure it out. Sorry I was not able to make it to Craigs this weekend with you guys, but I figured you did not want me to share my flu bug and pink eye....

Frank will try to help with pic's...everything is the same as loading pic's on ebay except you add [img] before the http and then add [/img] at the end after your JPG or GIF.
put this right in your repy at end of what you have to say.also remember image must be loaded on your server(same as ebay...)

Verry Strong Graphics on that one, wonder if anyone has seen another. It would sure run up there at a big auction, you know what them guys pay for strong graphics and extreme rarity!! They cant help themselves, they just whip open their wallets and throw themselves at the feet of the auctioneer, and when he cant stand it anymore the bidding stops.!!

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Glad I dont have to worry about conducting myself in that manner at an auction..dodogas

For you guys that are on AOL you get free server space on there server to load pictures to. Type FTP under [search] in the right top corner. Then select FTP SPACE, then SEE MY FTP SPACE, That is where you would upload pictures to. Your address would be something like this http://members.aol.com/youraolname/images/sign.jpg then put the [img] in front of that and a [/img] at the end and the image will appear. Just play with it and you all will get it. Jim Potts... there are some places were you can get free server space if your not on AOL but i don't know of any do you?
