Bought my first sign about 1983. Am I qualified to be in the real collector world? Still have the sign too and a lot more after that. I used to buy signs around Wis and ship them out to Butch Greer and he would send me a check. Then they were really cheap. Butch just started in the petro world. It was during Reagonomics time then, am I qualified yet? Butch has become a top respected collector since then.This site was much more friendly then but as with all things it has evolved and not much of the old gang are on here now. Tell us more about collecting petro stuff Carl,tnx for the good wishes tho.
