Hi, I have a gas pump globe glass from Lakeside Refinery in Kalamazoo Michigan. The brand name for regular was XL88. I am trying to find a value on this globe and I can't find any information. Any help would be appreciated. I am new and will try and find a way to add a photo to this post. I tried to post a photo and can't figure it out. Please ask and I will send pictures.

Hi Keith, The globe you have is for a Michigan company (Lakeside Refining, like you mentioned). They were founded in 1939 in Kalamazoo and were in business until the 1980's. There was X-cel88 and X-cel 98. A friend of mine has one of the signs. The value of the globe is $500-750 and is supposed to be on an olive colored Capco body. *All this info is from the globe CD.
