Is that price even CLOSE to what these should bring? I never thought I'd see a lollipop sign for anywhere near that price.

I looked at the 42 in and wondered if seller even owned it as they didn't know what size it was. I'm with Brian is this throw it at the wall prices and see if it sticks. I feel like this hobby has been hurt with this method of sells,but as they say its a sellers market as long as there is someone stepping up.

its easy to criticize prices, but make sure and ask yourself... "What would I ask if it were mine?"

if you answer that question honestly, sometimes these prices are not too surprising.

Personally, I feel it is a $8k sign. But it is rare enough that its just one persons opinion over anothers... they are free to ask what they please

If it were mine I would not sell it. If I did I think 5-6K would be the number.

Randy, there is something you don't have? First I heard you say that.

I had this same sign I sold at the first Mass Gas Bash for $650. I believe it was Ray Sider that bought it. It was not as nice as this naturally.

I agree...from the little snippets I've seen of Randy's collection, I didn't think there was anything he DIDN'T have!
