I got some signs and gas memorabilia from my grandpa who was insane about collecting this stuff and I know he spent a lot, some are still in their original boxes (like new old signs) and they look really nice I haven't been able to find out how much most of them are worth because I am unable to find pictures of a lot of them. Some have a little bit of rust and stuff but overall I think they are really nice. I have been looking at the prices and I wasn't aware what he had really left me until I joined this forum. I am having trouble finding out some of the prices. What is the best way besides ebay I can find the value for what I really have?

What type of brands are the signs? Pictures would help, there's a lot of knowledgable folks on this forum that can help.

Quite a different scenario than your posts a few days ago.

Cropped sign above [Round RICHLUBE curb sign] is almost worthless for trying to get a value on, BUT will help the Repop guys for Clarity!

Search past auctions ebay, Matthews, Morphys, etc. In bottom right hand corner, search Oldgas using Google custom search.
Be fair on condition when comparing.

Thanks Dick! Finally somebody with some insight! If I can't find a sign I guess I just have to learn the hard way of what it is then...

Layout of a sign is more important to the Repop guys than High Quality images [those just save time copying].
THAT is another reason you should search completed auctions, LEARN WHAT MIGHT BE RARE Before posting.

From the image above, I'd say he collected some Quality Condition signs.

I am going out on a limb here, But honesty is the best policy here. If someone thinks that there is a potential problem they will blast it out. Do not beat around the bush, for your own sake.
