Been looking at this John Madden sign for years at an old shell station. Finally stopped in and bought it for $15 the other day.

Another Old Gasser called me on this one when he spotted it in an antique store and thought that I would like it! I liked it and made a deal with the store and got it shipped over here! It cleaned up real nice and sits in my shop today!

How about some shots of the bases? I for one would like to see what the correct bases should look like. Alot of curb signs used the generic bases and are correct with alot of the signs, but some of those same signs also had their own embossed bases. Thanks guys for the post so far. Looking good.
