It's difficult to find old, authentic Coca-Cola signs at decent prices. So it helps to think outside the box while building a collection (especially if you have a lot of wall space!). *It also doesn't hurt to have knowledgeable friends.*
I ran across this 33" x 50" sports theme canvas banner with minutes to go in the eBay listing, but had no idea what it was. It looked right though. And the golf bag definitely had my interest. The auction ended with no bidders.
Soon after, I heard back from The Early One that this is off the back side of a 1950's delivery truck. I contacted seller and was able to purchase for 85 delivered.
The banner arrived filthy, so I cleaned it up using a soft cloth and warm water, to great result. It now hangs on a wall in the spare bedroom of The Coke Cave. I may mount it to a simple black wood frame to hide the grommets and add some definition to the edges.
Either way, it's a whole lotta cool Coca-Cola wall coverage at a little bit of price.
