This sign is 13 3/8 by 19 and made out of tin. It's titled "A Close Game"
I found this in my Grandfathers house which he built in Duluth Minnesota in 1909. I am trying to determine it's value? I have never seen one before.

    Have you researched the topic through the Collector's Weekly resource page on beer signs? Not only does it have basic information on the collecting of beer signs, that resource page gives more links to other websites that have information on it too!

    I hope that can give you some information.

    This is what they call a "stock scene" where the brewery uses a scene that is already printed on the sign.That way,they don't incur art or setup charges. Similar stores (hardware,grocery,blacksmith,etc) could use this same scene,simply adding THEIR name around the outside.This was probably made by Meek & Beach or in Coshocton,OH. Without the back,and with the wrinkles,I'd put it in the 2 to 400 range.(It would be much more with DULUTH, MN. and a unique scene) I've collected midwest beer stuff for 20+ years.

    I have a six pack of Fitgers beer in a commerative wooden case from 1986. Anyone know what it might be worth?
