Hi everyone, this sign is available about 50 miles away from me. The seller says it is 6 feet by 3 feet roughly.
I'm not sure I need a sign this big, but do you suppose it would be worth the drive in terms of trade or resell value? Thanks in advance for advice.



**edit: Forgot, he wants 65 dollars for it.*

LARGE ? THIS IS LARGE ! LOL
Sure wished I hadn't traded this sign away. Don't have any idea where I could display it, but it's gone.

It's worth half a clam! Not sure anyone would shell out anything for it. I'd just cut of the "S" and say the heck with it!

Maybe somebody needed a Back Board for their basketball hoop so they cut the bottom off or through out the bottom half if it was a 2 piece sign. I seen a 6' Texaco sign one time, maybe on this site that had been folded in Half and had a basketball hoop bolted to it.

I've got one with both sides but they're mismatched. There was obviously not an exact place specified where to cut them. I have seen several others mismatched as well. It's about 6' x 6' and it's heavy. Mine is rough.
