I always like to check out this thread to see who has added photos of their collection. I have finally found the time to get photos of my patch collection. The pics are attached for your enjoyment.

Too many patches (and too many photos) to get them all in one post. Here is photo group #2.

I am always interested in any leads on rare or unique gasoline or oil patches that I do not have in my collection.

Pakymn, you could open a patch museum with the collection you have!!! Those Sunray Patches are my favorite, I have never seen them and I look for patches all of the time. Very nice.

I don't collect them, but I recently stumbled upon these on eBay for the St. Paul, Minnesota based Oskey Brothers Petroleum Corporation's North Star stations. I have an uncle who worked at one of these full service stations in the 1960s. I'm sure these patches or something like it was part of his uniform.

Hey pakymn. I just spied this KO patch in your collection. Any chance of getting an isolated closeup image of this one? I'm wondering what you can tell me about this. Is this from the Kunz Oil Company's KO stations? Thanks.

Oskey Brothers was acquired by Northwestern Refining Company of St. Paul Park in the 1950's. Northwestern retailed gasoline through SuperAmerica, Laurie Gas, Trax Oil, North Star and Webb stations when in operation.

Norhtwestern was acquired by Ashland Oil in 1970. Ashland eventually changed the stations to SuperAmerica or sold them off.

I worked at the old Northwestern refinery and came across some of these patches there.

Thanks for this. This is all very helpful. I didn't know Northwestern acuqired Oskey Bros so early, though I should have known it smile
