I found this sign a few yrs ago and didn't realize what the advertisement was until one night I got looking. But I can't find any other like it online any ideas on it or what it would be worth?

Welcome to Oldgas! Can't speak to value ,think it would be of interest to gulf collector. I remember this promotion the shoes were plastic and designed to stick to window,think most were given to kids and didn't survive. Exxon had Tony's tail you hung out of gas door ,Gulf had Horseshoes.

Well that lets you know my age, I've reached the top but not all the way over the hill just yet! Still Kicking,LOL!

Loyd, your absolutely right, my dad worked for the local gulf distributor. I remember e brought some of the plastic horse shoes home. I have never ran across that sign. Can't help with value, but cool sign.

The old joke back then was "How do you get a Tiger in your tank? Kick him in the gas hole"

I also remember that there are pinbacks with the horse shoes that Gulf put out.

...I want to say I read somewhere that Gulf gave away 7 million pair of those plastic horseshoes...


Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...
