Does anyone have or have you seen pump plates that would match this Marathon globe logo? Thanks, Brian

You haven't seen any pp's as all Marathon used were decals as far as I'm aware.

BTW, the fake aged 12" Marathon runner "pump plate" sold on Ebay regularly for stupid money is based on the design of the original pole sign but is a fantasy piece worth $25.

That's right. No Marathon pump plates of any era. In most eras there were nothing but globes and ad glass. In the 1960s they used pump decals.
