So, I bought this one before I realized that the "S" in Tires was cut off. With the damage at the bottom and around the edges, what's this sign still worth? I bought it for my collection. Hoping that I didn't overpay. It's single sided. Measures approximately 79"x24".

I guess if you paid $35 for it, it wasn't too bad of a mistake. Hang it on the wall and put something large in front of it to disguise the faults(???).

On time i was at an auction. And the signs were selling for kinda silly money. And this beautifull self framed pennzoil sign came up and i wasnt really interested but since it was cheap i jumped in. It was at 1230 at night when i got home that i realized the sign was in spanish. I was *****. We laughed for ten minutes about that sign.

I didn't pay $35 for it. That was the lot number. I wouldn't ask if I bought this sign that cheap.
