Daddy_Nobu…
(140 items)

Added a hard-to-find item to my collection last week, this 30's ice bowl. I went outside my comfort zone (a.k.a. eBay BIN) by participating in a live on-line auction event to acquire this piece. I've long been on the look out for the bowl, so the listing caught my eye. I was a little surprised to bring it home for a fraction of book value (took it with just 3 bids). The bowl does have a 2" closed crack and slight chip, which probably explains low interest (fracture=fraction). Still, the damage is hardly noticeable and I'm more than happy to provide a home for this sweetie. I plan to "borrow" yet another outstanding idea from one of my friends here at CW by filling it with fake ice and 6 vintage bottles of Delicious and Refreshing for display.

    Thanks for the kind words Gents! I agree, the cool factor and diversity of Coca-Cola ad products make for a fun collecting experience. I think of myself primarily as a Sign Guy, but I find the other stuff is just as enjoyable to acquire and display. I dare say when I was high bidder on the bowl, I felt a lot like the collector who bought The Scream yesterday... well sorta... without the "I'm Obscenely Rich" afterglow. Other than that, very similar! :)

    You should "scream". That's a great piece buddy!!
  4. Daddy_Nobucks Daddy_Nobucks, 2 years ago
    Thanks Tom. I think I've previously assumed the same pose as that ?dude? in The Scream after making a few questionable purchases. A silent scream... n-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!!!!

    Great item! I like how you have it displayed.

    Of course it will look better once you take the Morphy sticker off of it.
  8. Daddy_Nobucks Daddy_Nobucks, 2 years ago
    Thanks Trev, just took it out of the box for the pics. I may leave it on that table until I find the ice and bottles.

    Thanks Spriteboy for the tip. See, this is why I love CW, so much to learn. I'm going to go take all the stickers off my stuff right now! :)

    Seen it has a Morphy's auction sticker on it. That place is right up the road from me. Their auctions always have high quality items. Very cool bowl!!
  12. Daddy_Nobucks Daddy_Nobucks, 2 years ago
    Thanks spriteboy42! That was my first Morphy buy, it was a good experience. Nice hearing from you. I keep looking for more of those amazing finds you score. Hope to see more soon.

    hey daddy nobucks this is bottleman i was thinking of getting rid of my 12 pack sign i know its rare but what do you think is a fare price i should ask if you can help thanks
  14. Daddy_Nobucks Daddy_Nobucks, 2 years ago
    Hey bottle-man, Depends on how you want to sell it. On a regular bid eBay auction, I'd start it at $999 and hope a couple rich collectors battle it out. If a "buy it now", I'd probably list it at $1499. If a private deal or "buy it now or best offer", I'd ask $2000 as a starting point. Short story, based on my experience: 12ers like yours are going for between 1-2 grand these days ("mint" maybe a little higher).
  15. tommy1002 tommy1002, 2 years ago
    Very sound pricing for that sign. I wish the money tree hadn't wilted this week!!!
  16. Daddy_Nobucks Daddy_Nobucks, 2 years ago
    I'm still kicking around that time-share idea Tom! :)

    I have one of these that was my great-uncles..he worked in the Minneapolis bottling plant. It has no chips, cracks etc. I would never sell it but was wondering how much it's worth? Any idea? Thanks much!
  19. Daddy_Nobucks Daddy_Nobucks, 3 months ago
    Hi, book value for a mint condition example is $650. I've seen a couple of these come up on eBay over the the past year or so, and they sold for right around $300. If yours is perfect, I'd say value falls in the $350-$500 range. They are fairly scarce. Nice piece from your great uncle!
