How were the prices?? I've seen the Seider collection (actually contributed to it a little) and wondered how it went. After that John Ball auction two weeks ago (which was a runaway success) I'm curious how this one went....

Jeeeeeezz, that Mobilfuel Diesel globe went CHEAP, as did the 15" Mobil globe. I always see things that I wish I could have been there to bid on. Oh well, that's how auctions go. If I would have bid they would have went for twice the amount, lol!

BTW, can any can guys tell me about lot #246a, the Mobil can with gargoyle. Is that an American can? I've never seen that in my 3 years of collecting Mobil items. The price seems cheap to me as well on it for a seemingly rare can?
Thanks for any info,
Darin

Darin, you can follow the Auctions Live on Proxibid and bid on Items also. I sat in front of the Computer yesterday and watched the entire Auction from the comfort of home. I bid on a number of things but only won a Quart Can that I wanted. It is pretty easy to sign up to bid online.


***Wanted*** Always looking for Oilzum, Kunz, and Husky Cans, Signs and Smalls.

I bid online for the first time. I bid on four pump plates and got the one I wanted for less than I thought it would go for.
