I would've guessed from the photo Ed posted in the "great old pics" thread yesterday that the Oilzum signs would've been cardboard or paper, as it was one I was not familiar with. Neat to see the one sold today and that they were tin tackers. Regardless of what they were made of they are a cool looking sign!

I find it interesting that an 8"x12" Texaco Marine White sign sold for $5,500 at the Richmond Auction yesterday, and a similar sign sold at the Iowa auction for $1,300 six weeks ago.

All depends on who's watching. People that have alot of money that go to mecum Barrett jackson they dont really care what it's worth if they want it they get it. Have seen it over and over.

Even the online Facebook auction/groups seem to suffer from this now. People throw ridiculous money at signs no matter where they turn up for sale.
