This one is a doozy: A very large 9' tall by 7'-4" on 2 vertical panels. It's been installed indoors for years and years. Pretty good condition considering it's previous outdoor life (but I don't know where it was installed previously). I've seen a few of these around in various state of disrepair. Enjoy!

    That is a beautiful monster of a sign! I like what you're doing there, framed, painting around it. Never seen one. Nice display.

    David, I've got the perfect spot for this monster if you're ever thinking of parting with it! These are so rare to have survived in this nice a condition. There can't be more than a couple of these in existance at this size.This sign would be the "signature piece" in any collection, and my personal opinion is that these big, hand done, rare signs, are the future "Big Money" collectible for those that have the large collections and places to house them!Look at guys like Corky Coker and Jay Leno and thousands of other deep pocket collectors that would love to get thier hands on a beaut like this, as would I, only I don't have the deep pockets yet!!

    TGBWC, Why is that. Wouldn't you think that it could be a nice background for a coke collector mancave background? =)

    Lucky for me I did'nt mention anything about buying or selling, don't want to ruffle any feathers! Maybe a donation to the Fill the Wall Cause ?
    With the popularity of all the American Picker type shows on now, the viewing public (me)have gotten a look at some amazing and inspiring collections. These guys are filling warehouse-sized spaces with amazing and expensive stuff, and most, if not all, include vintage advertising, and especially the larger pieces, to complement their collection.And there are a ton of people who are in the large scale collection snack-braket, with more starting all the time. They have all benefitted from this past practice of large=cheap, and as these signs are getting more scarce,and since there were way fewer of them to start with, I'm thinking that these big beauties will be the big-dollar collectibles of the future! (I've also been wrong before though!!)
    I'm starting my own, scaled down,poor mans version of this type of collection,and gladly will be accepting any un-loved or unwanted bohemoth signs!!
