    Thought I better get a post in before the Schmidt Heads get back with all the great Coca-Cola stuff this weekend.

    Snagged my first cardboard sign late last week, acquired on an eBay auction BIN request. I like this '42 version because of the elements portrayed and moment in time represented. The six-pack graphic is a beauty. This sign has condition issues, a little water damage upper left and surface wear throughout. But it looks fine in my opinion. I framed it myself with materials on hand. Someday I may have a matte put on, so as to minimize impact of that stain. I was able to put this presentation together for about the price of a nice 12" button sign, which fits with my recent austerity endeavor (still needs a little fine tuning :).

      Sweet cardboard Dave, nice job with the framing too. I love the old tin sign also, nice combination together!

      Thanks Bernie! That other one is actually a cardboard sign as well, with a tin frame, used as temporary signs at fairs, ball games, etc., "came out of a barn in Tennesee." I did not expect to be hanging old Coca-Cola signs in that spare bedroom! :)

      I see Tommy, not this one:

      http://www.ebay.com/itm/Coca-Cola-Coke-Cardboard-Litho-in-Kay-Display-Frame-/310291365046?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item483ece7cb6

      This one, $750.

      http://www.ebay.com/itm/ORIGINAL-CARDBOARD-COCA-COLA-SIGN-WITH-ORIGINAL-FRAME-/160882588733?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2575597c3d

      Still high in that condition, but that frame may make it worthwhile.

      I am always willing to give in a little where damage is concerned. However, I always try to buy the nicest, this one for $750 is a great buy I think, Just don't know that I'm ready to give the better part of a grand for cardboard, I think you know what I'm sayin.

      I sure do know what you're saying! :)
