...some colors are worth more than others, because their production was short-lived...


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

Isn't there a fellow on here that heavily collects spray paint cans? Maybe he could jump into this thread..


Good oil cans don't wait for people, people wait for them.

Little late jumping in on it. Yes they are collectible, but prices have been pretty ridiculous the past couple months. Don't be on them staying this way. I have been collecting them for steadily for over 15years, and we are seeing a couple newer collectors that have come into the market really driving up prices. After they spend all their hard earned cash prices will settle again. Only certain cans go for the big bucks, but it is attracting alot of people looking to get rich quick. If you want to save the time and hassle of listing alot of potential junk, feel free to message me. 90-95% of what people find is worth little to nothing. Kinda like oil cans I guess.
