First off, I'd like to announce that I am stepping down as host of this thread which I faithfully started and kept alive for almost 11 years. What a Ride it's Been.

I am passing the reigns to Anthony/Big Block Cat, who has offered to continue the BOTW thread in my place. Hoping everybody will support him in his efforts to be the NEW Host as the thread has always been very popular among members.

At this time, I'd like to Thank all the participating BOTW members over the past 11 years who posted and discussed the items we all Love. Without your posts, BOTW would not be what it's been.

Good Luck Anthony...lean on me if you need to. smile

Now, let's get the show on the road.....

Thanks Everyone! smile

Signing Off.....

Thanks Doc for you contribution to the site, and the BOTW’s continued success 11 years running!

I will start things off with my botw for past week. I have to thank a collector who will remain nameless that has finally decided to let go of one of his Hancock pp, and gave me a shot at it. Some of my other buys came from the Kramer’s Junction show, and one from eBay. Keep them coming everyone!

Doc, I'll miss your cool graphics at the beginning, but so happy that the thread will continue with Big Block Cat. There's always some really nice stuff to see and great to see the stuff all together from different collectors. So thanks Doc and Anthony!

Doc...what can I say...you the man! Thank you for the years of service to OG & BOTW. Since I've been a member I never missed a week. Anthony thanks for taking on the task for all of us and good luck.


Mainly focused on Oilzum, Jenney, Harris Oil items & original paint gas pumps.

It has been a great couple of weeks. I went to Maine to work on a couple of cabins my Mom has up there and to pick up some pumps. I was able to make a stop along the way and buy more pumps also had some delivered to my house from California while I was gone. I believe the add glass top is for an Erie 70 but not sure. Looking for any information I can get on it. Love the sign Dennis and hats off to Doc!!!!

had one of these 48" b/w clovers last year, but sold it cause it was kind of rough. Glad to finally find a somewhat clean one.

As a golfer, Doc I would yell "You da Man!" Actually golfers don't do that spectators do, but it gets attention. BOTW is my favorite part of OG and you did it well. And I know Anthony will capably fill your big shoes.
Now some of the stuff I purchased a few weeks earlier but never displayed it on BOTW.
The Red Head Lens is cracked but few are available and it displays well regardless
The Polly Can is a vinyl clad can of DBs. It is a great momento of a special man.
