Just for the record I wasn't able to buy this sign from the picker and I didn't list it on Ebay. The picker did. I posted the question about info on Blue Bonnet Gas and value. I'm very impressed with the Oldgas forum. I too am very surprised by the ebay auction. Thanks for all the replies.
Wonder if the new owner will restore it or leave it alone? One of the tings I do not understand is why the high bidder would place 5 bids over a 6 day period on a high dollar item like this? His last bid was with 12 seconds to go. It would seem to me that he just drove the price up higher I would have bid my 5300.00 or what ever he bid with 12 seconds to go and left it at that. I'm sure he would have got it for less if he had of waited and bid just once with 12 seconds to go. Would like to hear some other thoughts or opinions on this.
You're right Don but some people don't understand the sniping system. Also he could have been completely in the dark on value and just kept bidding to find that out. If final price was no object, he could have fired in 10 thou at the end and probably saved some money.
