‘Signs for man-caves’: Giant, vintage collection to go up for auction
Vintage sign collecting has taken off.
“The market is absolutely red, red hot all over Canada and the States,” said Wayne Learie of The Mad Picker auctions.
“Signs for man-caves — there’s none around anymore. Every time they come to auction the prices are going wild.”
He points to a giant porcelain sign for Black Cat Cigarettes, featuring a black cat head and the motto “They taste better!”
“It used to sell for $3,500,” he said. “It’s a week to the auction and the bid on it now is $9,100.”
