I have had this sign for about 10 years and found it at a yard sale. I had to make a u-turn about 2 miles after I passed the sale because I knew if I didn't it would bother me that I may have left a good buy slip away. Among the common household items and clothes I found this old Sakrete sign. I was told it was $10 but offered $8 and they accepted the offer. Not in the greatest shape with a few creases and holes that looked like they nailed it up with spikes at one point, still a bargain for what I paid.
Also someone colored the captions in with permanent red magic marker. I recently threw away 4 old bags similar to the one at the center bottom, they were left in my basement by previous owner and solidified from the moisture.

    GREAT sign MattyG, good eye! Best U-Turn you probably ever made.

    This is the one, it is different from the newer ones that don't have the "GOSH" and "AHH". The newer ones without these phrases are basically worthless.

    Thanks for the love and great information signaholic. My neighbor has a consignment shop in what used to be the barn for my house, and he told me local racing legend Keith Kauffman's son dropped off 2 massive old Coca-Cola signs that were taking up too much room in their basement and had $20 on each of them. I could have rung his neck for not telling me, anyway they're gone : (
