    This is a double sided porcelain flanged sign. It's been in my collection for over 25 years. It says Goodyear Balloon on the tire. I've never seen one like it. Any ideas on age & value?

      Fabulous sign, gldguy.

      Here is one that recently sold in June 2011 for $2,200 and the next link is the article from "Antique Trader" that discusses the sale of the sign:

      I don't know anything about signs, or Goodyear, and can't date your sign. However, here is a March 28, 1927, newspaper advertisement that shows the "Goodyear Balloon" tire around the globe:

      And this advertisement of February 28, 1927, shows just the "Goodyear Balloon" tire:

      According to Goodyear's website, the "balloon tire" was introduced in 1923:
