  1. Nice one. I'm always bullish on old, authentic Coca-Cola. I think you'll find you made a good investment with your '38 sign acquisition. Well done.
  2. Thanks Edisonfan. I'm much more comfortable buying the tin signs but liked this one because it doesn't need a frame and has great graphics (and it's all there).
  3. I acquired the '26 sign through a negotiated eBay BIN deal. Seller put it up for regular auction, I contacted him immediately asking if he would consider a "Buy it Now" deal, and he responded with a ...
  4. Super sled! If there was a fire and I only had time to grab one, it would be this beauty: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/69523-1926-coca-cola-tin-sign-8-1-2-x-11
  5. Cardboard rating is a bit of a mystery to me. Blaine's guide has a pretty good outline. http://earlycoke.com/grading-guide-for-cardboards.html
  6. Hoo-Boy, look at those mugs. I'm guessing it wasn't easy working for that board. How'd you like Mr. Whitten on your back to meet a deadline?!?!
  7. The carrier is definitely a "must have" item, filled with bottles or empty this will look great on display in your Coke Room. Nice one. Might even clean up a little.
  8. Now that's an old thermometer! Nice condition too considering it's wood. I've seen many in a lot worse shape. Never had a chance to buy one. Congrats.
  9. Yep, and many times the images need not be purchased. It's easy to download from eBay listings and website pics for free. My Picasa album is full of 'em.
  10. 3/4's of a similar banner from the same period. I almost bid on this pic. It's a beauty.
  11. Yep, that was a nice snag Ray.
  12. Nice Rack.
  13. Thanks edisonfan. I usually try to stay away from bid auctions. I've build 90% of my collection via BIN deals. And mixed in a few FIN (flip it now) deals to offset cost with good success.
  14. Well, take some comfort that I spared you having to deal with this seller. It took nearly a month to receive the sign.
  15. If I'd known you were bidding on it, I would have laid off Bernie. At that price I couldn't pass it up.
  16. Your collection looks better than ever Trev. I bet you could pack the walls and corners of a small apartment or house nicely for display. And what better pick up line is there than "Would you like t...
  17. Great to hear from you Trevor! Hope it's going good. Thanks for the kind words. Looking forward to seeing updated pics of your collection.
  18. Thanks Trev and Ray. Comments from you two make this one a special post!
  19. According to their website, Morco manufactures specialty advertising products and have been in business 93 years. http://www.morcoline.com/index.php?id=280 There are multiple listings on eBay ...
  20. I haven't seen it either. Any trademark detail?
  21. A Backyard Cokeasis, for sure!
  22. Quit calling me Shirley. ;0)
  23. The old periodicals and programs with early Coca-Cola ads are always interesting. Also fun to look at the other ads and printed info within. I like them because they are affordable and provide a win...
  24. Thanks smiata. Yes, a labor of love.
  25. Moreso if loaded up with Famous Amos' Chocolate Chip and Pecan cookies... yum!
  26. Thanks Bernie. You've pitched in a more than a few times and once or twice specific to Canadian signs, I appreciate it.
  27. Contemporary decorative/utilitarian object. Form is based on the iconic 1896 Coca-Cola syrup urn manufactured by Wheeling Pottery. I believe you have a cookie jar.
  28. Thanks Rose, always nice to hear from you. Hope you have a good week.
  29. You picked up some goodies on your trip! Love the flange sign, very nice.
  30. The last leg will be a long one. ;0)
  31. Thanks geo for the nice comment. My pleasure.

  33. Sounds like it would have been a good episode of the History Channel's "Coca-Cola Pickers" starring 8-Packers and Friends.
  34. rocker is right. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/30445-coca-cola-bench
  35. I don't think he's saying these are grandma's cards.
  36. Thank God the Axis was defeated before many of their planes could make it over here. Nice deck, illustrates well another time in U.S. history.
  37. Don't encourage me Tommy! Thanks for saying so, it's one I've been chasing for some time. I'm truly considering that I'm to the point where I'll only buy pre-1940 signs.
  38. Wonderful collection. It's amazing that you've found so many and different versions. They display nicely, easy to see why you like them so much. Me too!
  39. Nice Paper!
  40. What a beauty TGBWC. First Class and Special Delivery. Congrats.
  41. Great deal for a very nice tray. I would like to have one like it someday. Your tip trays look great on the bookshelf with your offer stuff, well displayed.
  42. Hey Bernie, you know I appreciate your comments always. Coming from a guy with the caliber of your collection, displayed in your sweet game room and garage, well it means a lot. Thank you Sir!
  43. Thanks Edisonfan!
  44. Thank you Manikin and Virginia for your nice comments.
  45. Class is in session. Interesting lesson, Professor TGBWC. I wonder what the old time marketers would have thought about Coke machines actually being placed IN schools during present day. I think wi...
  46. Thanks JPSII, I appreciate it. Best of Luck.
  47. Thank you Ray. I'm "Keeping it in The Cave"! :0)
  48. Ray's Diner is serving up some good chow tonight. The time machine is in your back porch.
  49. Old and authentic.
  50. Flangetastic!
