In the last couple weeks 2 more new to the market Mobil related repros/fantasy signs have hit Ebay. It makes me wonder who's making these and where they are coming from? I don't see these coming out of India. I heard possibly Canada?

I guess it doesn't matter but this junk is without a doubt going to be the death of the market for pump plates in the future. I've seen a couple auctions now where the original signs are no longer getting the bids as I think people are getting so leery of repros the originals aren't even selling.

I keep adding these to the "Unmarked Reproductions and Fantasy Album" on the site. I sure hope it helps someone along the way taking the time to do so.

They are getting better, fortunately we're still able to identify them as fakes.

For sure Craig....each one sells without a doubt. Lots of them in the $200 or more range. Sad......
